What is the Scottish Power new current (April 2022) standard rate?

posted by Aauk25 | A month ago

Hi All

I can't seem to find the Standard rate Scottish Power are charging since 01 April 2022, surely it should be easily available, I wanted to compare it to my fixed rate, can someone kindly give me the unit rate and daily standard charge rate for both electric and gas please. 
 
Thanks

@Aauk25     The exact data varies,  but roughly,   Elec 28p. Gas 7.7p. St charge 40 p each.

I fixed mine in February 2022 , received an email saying it was exclusive offer fixed till June 2023. Rates are Electric 25.73, Gas 6.83 and standing charge 20.61 for both. So looks like I definitely made the right choice to get it fixed at that time.

Thanks for the tariffs - seemed so diffficult to find,.  One question - how can the standing charges 40p per day each for gas be above the capped rates of 27p per day ?

@IainT   The cap refers to the total costs for a 'typical' customer.  Neither the cost/kwh nor the daily fixed charges are mentioned, suppliers are free to mix and match fixed charges and variable/kwh charges as long as they do not exceed the capped total cost of £1971.   The variable costs/kwh that I quoted are what are being typically used, the fixed charges are charged per day and  there can be a big variations.

A 'typical' customer is defined as 12000 kwh gas a year and 2900 kwh electricity a year.  So 12000*7.37 plus 2900*28.34 plus 365*40 for gas and 365*40 for electricity = total annual cost in pence, so divide by 100 to get Pounds. This adds up to £1998 so it is roughly correct.

Overall it is a very confusing and complicated system, but it is what we have to accept.

The Tarif Information Label page https://www2.scottishpower.co.uk/tariff-information.process (from your online account)

There are a confusing number of options, I went with Elec or Gas, direct-debit, online bill, then standard variable

What an absolute farce. I can’t find the standard tariff anywhere. I work in Financial Services, we would get royally fined for doing that. Shame on you SP.
