Hi jasmine, after a slow start I have paid my final Scottish Power bill and my account has been closed. So far Our Power have not been the most efficent provider I have ever had but then again neither was Scottish Power. I have yet to receive my first bill since moving supplier but I intend to stick with them as I believe in what they are trying to do, i.e give customers on restricted meters a cheaper alternative and also the fact that they are non-profit The company is relatively new so it is all a learning curve for them
Can anyone PLEASE ,PLEASE ADVISE.My 83 year old mother -in-law lives in Dumfries & Galloway scotland.She is all alone & her Bills for electris are currently £144/month . She is at her wits end as they have told her this will be £215/month dirct debit from 10/10/2018.
I have just tried to swith to Bulb a new provider which could save over £400.00 year,Unfortunatley because she has a Complex Weather Meter ( two meters ) which seems to very old Scottish Power have been very difficult to get involved as they are NOT commiting & even suggesting we get our own electrician to Change the storage heaters and look at the problem with the meterIt certainly looks like there is no way out !!!! Any suggestions on companies that might take a 83 yaer old who will pay on the button would be appreciated.
Search this forum for Weathercall and Comfort Plus. Several people have had trouble leaving SP without big rewiring costs but I remember one person did find a supplier who would take on the SP system.
The cheapest option is to take a hard look at insulation in the house and see if you can adjust the system to use the least fuel, not heating unused rooms and not heating overnight.
Has anyone been successful in getting rid of the two or more meters and changing to one.. I’ve had this meter change cancelled several times now and don’t have storage heaters anymore so want a normal single meter but SP don’t seem able to do that.
I also have this setup and have been attempting to get Scottish Power to change this since July 2018. I have now gone to the Ombudsman in the hope that their intervention will persuade Scottish Power to agree to move my metering system on to a standard arrangement
