Scottish Power tariffs for existing customers

If you are one of the few energy consumers that do carefully research all the tariffs listed by an energy supplier, you may have been overwhelmed by Scottish Power’s list of tariffs. While it may seem excessive, many of these tariffs are actually not available to anyone aside from the customers that are already signed on to them, what this means is that while Scottish Power does have customers that are currently signed on with the below tariffs, many of them are no longer available.

Existing Scottish Power customers whose fixed tariff expires without being renewed will be placed on Scottish Power’s standard tariff. This tariff is variable, meaning your bills can go up or down depending on price fluctuations in the wholesale energy market and changes in the national grid. In case you are an existing customer and you are thinking about changing to another supplier, don’t hesitate to call us.
