ScottishPower currently offers business customers four main tariffs, including two fixed-rate options as well as a variable rate and a fixed and variable combined rate.

For Business

The For Business tariff is currently available as a fixed-term contract for between one and three years It combines a fixed and a variable price element.

The fixed price is the energy it supplies to your business, which shields you from fluctuating wholesale costs. The variable price increases or decreases in line with changing third party costs and is automatically updated every quarter.

Standard Fixed

Standard Fixed is a one year fixed price tariff that a business will automatically be placed on if it doesn't renew or terminate its contract at the end of its term.

Businesses can move from the standard fixed plan to a new tariff at any time without paying exit fees.

Standard Variable

On the Standard Variable tariff, your business’s gas and electricity rates can go up or down at any time in line with fluctuating external and wholesale costs. Rates are typically higher than the fixed term tariffs.

Deemed

The deemed rate is the default tariff your business will be placed on if it takes over a premises but doesn't sign a contract with ScottishPower. The price is variable and your business can move to a new tariff at any time without being charged exit fees.
