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.

"A lovely lady called Bhavni phoned me very quickly after I went online. She couldn't have been more helpful, explaining all the different rates for me. She managed to save me a huge amount per year - gave me her direct phone number if I needed to phone again - like gold-dust! even gave me a termination letter to send to my supplier. Couldn't have been easier and will definitely use again - and hope I get to speak to Bhavni again. Thanks again"
