Hebrides Energy, a not-for-profit community interest company led by key local agencies including Tighean Innse Gall, Hebridean Housing Partnership, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, The Stornoway Trust and Community Energy Scotland, has teamed up with existing Scottish “fairer energy” supplier Our Power, to promote a range of new Hebridean Tariffs to the local market.
The new Hebridean Take Control tariff is the first to offer an alternative for customers on restricted meter tariffs, including the many island homes that are reliant on night storage heating. It is a variable rate tariff, currently at 16.28p for the standard rate and 10.47p for heating rate, with a standing charge of 32.04p per day.
Savings will vary from house to house, however a current comparison between SSE Total Heat Total Control tariff shows an annual saving of £133.60 when switching to Hebrides Take control tariff for a direct debit customer. There are also potential savings for customers on prepayment and who pay on receipt of their bill. Why pay more for the same electric?
Hebrides Energy can also provide options for consumers on standard or Economy 7 meters.
Switching to a Hebrides Energy tariff is a short and simple process that can be completed online or by phone. There are no exit fees for those who wish to return to their original energy provider.
