I’m with Scottish Power and want to change to a different energy tariff, is that possible?
Yes, Scottish Power has a number of different tariffs available and these depend on many different factors. These include variable rate tariffs, standard tariffs, and tariffs for heavy usage. Which one you need and which one is best for you to switch to is really down to personal circumstances and your energy usage patterns.
To switch tariffs you can use the online Scottish Power portal, going through the MyAccount system, or otherwise you can get in contact with Scottish Power customer services via the telephone to switch your tariff and get extra information about the options available to you.
Switching tariffs can be an important way of maximising the efficiency of your energy bill and saving extra money that you could be using elsewhere. For that reason, if you think you might be on a tariff that doesn’t converge well with your needs, it’s an option that’s certainly worth looking into.
What do I do when my tariff is ending?
What you do with your tariff when it comes to an end depends on a couple of factors. If you’re currently using what’s known as a ‘Fixed Term’ tariff, that is, one that is set for a certain period of time, then Scottish Power should send you some information, either by a letter, or by an email, a minimum of six weeks before the end of your contract.
They may offer assistance with next steps, renewal, or changing your tariff.
Alternatively, if you use an online account for your services with Scottish Power, then you may be able to check online in the messages section to see when your tariff ends and what to do next.
It’s important to keep a note of this, as your account may be moved from the tariff you’re on to a ‘Standard tariff’ when your fixed term one reaches the date of expiry. Scottish Power state that in 20 calendar days of your tariff coming to an end, you’ll be charged the same prices until it changes.
If you need to find out more about when your tariff ends, setting up an online account, or have another query regarding your tariff with Scottish Power then you may wish to contact Scottish Power customer service to discuss your circumstances.
I want to pay with a different payment method for my Scottish Power account, how do I do it?
Scottish Power may accept different payment methods, and this gives you some flexibility in choosing how you want to pay your power bills, and which payment method is most convenient for you. If you use online services with Scottish Power then you may be able to set up a Direct Debit simply by using your on-screen portal.
You should be able to log in to your account and then select the ‘change your tariff’ option. It’s worth noting that to do this you’ll need to have your details, specifically concerning your bank account, on hand.
There are other payment options that may be available to you as a Scottish Power customer, but to find out about these you might wish to call the Scottish Power contact number above, as it could depend on your circumstances and product.
I want to reduce my Scottish Power bill, how can I save money?
The first thing that you can do to reduce your electricity bill and help save money and energy consumption is to use less energy. This might mean that you don’t leave lights on, turn appliances off when they’re not being used, and a number of other energy saving steps.
In addition to this, you might want to do some reflective planning to see where exactly your household expends the most energy. Scottish Power offer an energy efficiency survey which is intended to help you pinpoint the areas that you use the most energy and the most practical and effective ways for you to reduce your consumption, and your bill too.
Finally, if it is money that concerns you more than energy consumption then you might want to enquire with the Scottish Power helpline as to which tariff you use and whether switching tariff or signing up to a new service will help you reduce your bill.
It’s possible that there are more suitable tariffs for your needs that could help you save money depending on your usage. To find out about these you may wish to contact them directly by calling the Scottish Power number above with your details.
My energy bill is higher / my energy consumption has changed, why is that?
It’s very common for your energy bill to change over the year, not just based on weather but also based on your life and what you choose to use at different times.
As an example, it’s understandable that you’ll use a lot more energy in the colder months than compared to summer, because you need to keep warm and using products like boilers, radiators and so on requires a lot of energy, while summers are quite mild in comparison to other areas so air conditioners and et cetera are not often required.
However, there is more to the puzzle of changing energy consumption than this. You may want to think carefully about how your energy consumption could have changed over the last few months – have other people come to stay with you? Has someone returned home recently to live with you? Or have you bought a new appliance or device which uses more electricity? Otherwise, have you moved house or changed your living conditions in some way.
Normally, there will be a clear explanation for the change in energy use.
If you have an online account then it may be easier to track your energy consumption with Scottish Power, or for other enquiries you may want to contact the Scottish Power telephone number directly.
