Just moved into a new house. Opened online account with scottish power. We have a SP smart meter installed. (previous owner also using SP)
Currently, I'm on a stanard tarrif. Wanna switch to the 1 year fixed energy.
My question is, if I do that. will I be paying for what I use, or fixed monthly price based on an estimate?
@newtothegame Good question. A fixed deal fixes the unit costs per KWh. You pay for what you use and the DD can be adjusted until it settles to your normal pattern of use. If you are confident of your normal annual consumption the DD should remain fairly constant. However be aware that a fixed deal does not guarantee your DD will never change.
Yeah, that's what I want, I want to pay for what i use, and for the direct debit to adjust based on that.
Another question, I live with a couple friends, the SP account was opened in my friend's name. Can I use my debit card details for DD or does it have to be his card, his name?
@newtothegame I’m not sure about that, but to keep the account simple why don’t you give your friend the money each month but let them use their bank details. Remember once you register your payment details you would be chased for any bad debts.
