Individuals living in Scotland may find it difficult to get cheap energy if voters approve a plan for the nation to become independent, several leading energy suppliers have warned.
The Association of Energy Producers warned it is doubtful that Scottish households alone would be able to continue supporting renewable power schemes in the nation at current rates, the Daily Telegraph reports.
Calculations by the group suggest subsidies for green projects in Scotland will increase to £2 billion by the end of the decade, which could add £194 to the average home's annual bills.
It has also been observed by E.ON that while one-third of the UK's financial support for renewables goes to Scotland, the nation accounts for only ten per cent of British households.
Previously, SSE stated there should continue to be a single energy market for Great Britain, regardless of the outcome of a referendum on independence, in order to secure supplies and ensure the network is working efficiently.
