British power generator SSE sees 115 mln stg hit from coronavirus in first half

LONDON, Nov 18 (Reuters) - British renewable power generator and network operator SSE Plc saw a 115 million pound ($152.64 million) hit to profit in the first half of its financial year ending Sept. 30, due to the pandemic, the company said on Wednesday.

The company said earlier this year that it expects a full-year hit to profit of 150 million to 250 million pounds as measures to limit the spread of the virus hit energy demand.
