Tags: energy, power, electric, company, scottishpower, integrated, credit, coal, leader, carbon, scottish, world
Scottish Power has a simple strategy. It intends to become the United Kingdom's “best integrated energy supplier and a world leader in renewables.” To that end, it has integrated with Iberdrola – a Spanish power company that is already a world leader in renewable energy. It has also committed to initiate a carbon capture and storage system at an existing coal plant. With the strength of Iberdrola's Renewables, and the ability to actually have coal plants with little or no carbon emissions, ScottishPower is set to be THE eco friendly power company of the United Kingdom.
Despite this global commitment, Scottish Power is – and has been – putting the customer first when it comes to the retail energy business. Do you want a combined Gas and Electric bill? ScottishPower has it – in fact, they had it first! Do you want your gas and electric bills capped? ScottishPower has the longest deals on capped prices available! Do you want online service? They have the best – at least according to the awards they won from USwitch in 2006, 2007, 2008 AND 2009.
Best of all, they PAY YOU BACK if your account is in credit at the time of your assessment. Specifically, according to their website, “For every full multiple of £33 above the minimum credit value of £100, you’ll get £1 back. That’s £1 for a credit balance of £133, £2 for £166 and so on, up to a maximum of £12 for £496.” How many other companies do that?
