Not only is Scottish Power one of the Big Six business electricity providers in the UK, but it is actually a part of the Spanish concern, the Iberdrola Group that is amongst the top five energy companies on a global level. As a leader in renewables, Scottish Power is known for their focus on greener, cleaner and more cost-effective sources of energy and offers businesses in the UK sustainable electricity resources for their commercial properties.
At Business Electric, we know that UK companies want to do their part in lowering carbon emissions, so we do look at business tariffs provided by Scottish Power when comparing rates for your company. We have been found to save our customers up to 60% on their business electricity bills – you could be next!
One of the benefits of using Scottish Power as a business energy supplier is that it is also a large distribution network operator (DNO).
Many other suppliers simply supply energy, whereas Scottish Power runs the infrastructure that carries power to homes and businesses in Southern and Central Scotland, Wales and Merseyside, making them a great contender when finalising your Scottish Power business electricity tariff.
Because they are the DNO, it would not be necessary to make a ton of calls should something go wrong with the network. If there is an interruption in the supply, it takes one phone call to find out where the problem is and you may also get an estimate as to when the power would be restored.
With smaller suppliers, many businesses just don’t know who to contact if the supply suddenly comes to a halt.
Scottish Power suggests that small to medium enterprises (SMEs) choose a fixed rate plan for the lowest rates. Variable rates fluctuate and whilst they may be down when you contract energy from Scottish Power, market prices may negatively affect energy rates in the future.
In addition to this, Scottish Power have energy consultants on hand to help smaller businesses use energy wisely whilst learning even more effective ways to cut consumption.
At Business Electric, we look at the three basic tariffs available at Scottish Power. These include:
They also guarantee transparency in pricing other than things which are, of course, beyond their control such as rises in VAT, allowing you to be clear on your business’ utility costs.
business customers can choose whether they want to purchase energy in ‘tranches’ or buy energy at times throughout the year.
However, the flexible tariff provides tools for larger enterprises to analyse purchasing strategies, thus giving them greater control over how and when they buy energy. Scottish Power is also compliant with Government’s requirements to help larger businesses reduce carbon emissions as stated in CRC.
Whether your business is within Scottish Power’s DNO area or simply within their UK supply network, our business electricity brokers will impartially look at tariffs they have to offer. Our main purpose is to ensure that our business customers get the best rates available to them with the best terms, and provide businesses with the best tariff for their needs.
