ScottishPower commits to 100% green electricity fixed tariffs

Scottish Power has claimed that, from 17 February, all its domestic fixed price tariffs will be supplied by 100% green electricity from its UK wind farms. ScottishPower wind farms currently generate enough green electricity to supply 1.5mn households.

The utility said the tariffs differ from many others on the market in that the electricity supply they describe does not rely on the supplier buying renewables certificates elsewhere.

ScottishPower also said it will reinvest money made from the green tariffs in new renewable generation.

Keith Anderson, CEO of ScottishPower said: “As the UK’s only end-to-end energy provider, we’re unique in being able to make this commitment. From today, anyone who signs up for our electricity on a fixed-price tariff can be confident that they are buying 100% green electricity – all of it is sourced from our wind farms. “
