About us

We’re one of the biggest energy companies in the UK and part of the world-leading Iberdrola Group. At ScottishPower, we supply energy to households and businesses throughout Great Britain. We also generate electricity at our windfarms in our drive to create a cleaner, electric future.
1
We're on a mission to make energy cleaner and cheaper

We've invested millions in windfarms and thanks to this, in January 2019 we became the first integrated energy company in the UK to produce 100% green electricity.

2
Together, we can do our bit to create a zero-carbon future

We believe that by making positive changes, we can all help tackle climate change. That's why in February 2020 we launched our new range of fixed price tariffs with 100% green electricity, supplied by our UK windfarms.

Clean energy is just the beginning

Creating a more sustainable system involves more than just energy. From offering a greener way to drive with our electric vehicle tariff and charger, to smart tech that helps to reduce energy usage, we want to build a better future, quicker.

What does green really mean?

Green energy is generated from renewable resources that don't harm the environment. But while many suppliers promise to provide green electricity tariffs, they're not always investing in renewables. We think it's important to know where your electricity comes from. These examples show the different realities of "100% green electricity tariffs" that suppliers are providing to customers.

We provide 100% green electricity, made by our windfarms

At ScottishPower, not only do we supply energy, we generate it too. All our new fixed price tariffs are backed by 100% green electricity, bought directly from our UK windfarms.


Supplier B

turbines

Renewables only

This supplier buys their energy for green tariffs from renewable generators across the UK. They might partner with generators to purchase their electricity directly.


Supplier C

turbines

Part renewables, part mixed energy

This supplier buys some energy for green tariffs from a renewable generator, but the rest is from multiple sources and offset with green certificates. Their supply will be a mix of renewable and non-renewable energy.


Supplier D

turbines

Relies on green certificates

This supplier buys all their energy for green tariffs from multiple sources, meaning their supply could all be from non-renewable generation. Certificates are then purchased to 'greenwash' tariffs.

*All calculations and figures correct at time of writing on 11/02/2020. Homes powered for each site is calculated based on planned production output for 2020 in mWh, which is then divided by the published Ofgem average for medium electricity usage of 2,900 kWh (at time of writing on 11/02/2020). This figure is then rounded to the nearest thousand to provide the stated number.
