ScottishPower Launches Unifi Fixed Energy May 2014

ENERGYLINX: ScottishPower launched its latest tariff, the Unifi Fixed Energy May 2014, onto the market this week.

The Unifi Fixed Energy May 2014 is a fixed rate tariff in which prices are guaranteed to remain fixed until 30 April 2014; however, individual bill amounts are subject to very slightly depending upon usage. Scottishpower has placed the average customer bill at £1,272 per year for offline customers, and around £1,261 for online customers.

The Unifi Fixed Energy May 2014 is available in duel fuel only, but can be joined either with or without a daily standing charge. The plan is available to customers with single rate meters only. It must be paid by Monthly Direct Debit, and includes an annual discount for dual fuel and online customers. An early termination fee of £25 per fuel applies, inclusive of VAT; however, if a customer moves house, they will not be subject to pay said fee.

This latest tariff also includes an extra charge of around £3.00 per month for the Unifi system - which is ScottishPower's smart electricity monitoring system. Unifi allows customers to maintain their electricity usage while at home or on the move, set targets to reduce their consumption and operate their appliances at the touch of a button.

In order to use the Unifi system, customers must have a spare port in their broadband router in order to connect the device. In addition, the system cannot be installed in a home unless its electricity meter is readily accessible and mains cables are not tightly fixed against a wall. Customers have the right to cancel the plan within 7 working days of receiving the Unifi system without being subject to an early termination fee.

As with the introduction of any new tariff, Energylinx highly recommends that customers seek professional advice before switching suppliers. In order to learn more about ScottishPower's Unifi Fixed Energy May 2014, try using our 100% free and impartial energy comparison tool online now.
