ScottishPower’s proportion of coal- and gas-generated electricity is higher than the national average: it buys 49% of its electricity from coal generation, against 34% nationally. Gas made up 33% of its electricity in 2013–14, again higher than the national average of 26% (although its use of gas-generated electricity has increased from 26% in 2012–13).

Nuclear makes up very little of ScottishPower’s fuel mix and this has remained the same for several years.

But there has been an increase in the amount of renewable energy in the fuel mix. From just 9% in 2011–12 the percentage of renewable energy in ScottishPower’s fuel mix has increased to 17% for 2013–14, the same as the national average.

The increase in renewable energy in its fuel mix follows many of the other energy suppliers. From British Gas to Haven Power, the fuel mix of electricity suppliers becoming greener – with an increase in renewable energy.

While ScottishPower may not have as much renewable energy in its mix as other suppliers it still reflects the national average.

Super helpful and easy to work with

"Recommend this company in a heartbeat - Nicole Borneuf was super easy to talk to, was not pushy in the slightest, very helpful and replied with all my questions very professionally and did all she could to help. I had to deal with a few companies to sort my business energy out, all but Nicole were too pushy for my liking and I refused to follow through with them. Thank Nicole - you are a credit to your company, thank you for making the stressful energy change so easy."

An Extremely Competent Company

"Switch my business has not only helped my SME secure a good energy deal for the second year running but Jessica swiftly found a alternative supplier for me when I was let down on the day of switching by the new contractual provider I had chosen some 4 months previously. Being suddenly out of contract and without provider is everyone's energy nightmare. Greatest thanks."

Quick & Easy

"Kabibi was very helpful and the whole process was very efficient. The one small reservation I had was that I was phoned up by Kabibi almost immediately having received my online quote - which wasn't enough time for me to finish reading the quotes! Fortunately she was able to assist me in a greater savings on both Gas & Electricity, and so as long as the switchover is seamless I will remain very happy with the service."
