Scottish Power raises prices to the cap limit

£1,138 is the new standard default tariff price.

By Matt Maynard · 1st March 2021

Scottish Power raises the price of its default tariff to £1,138 - the upper limit of Ofgem's price cap set to take effect from 1st April. 

Customers on a Scottish Power default energy tariff will find themselves being charged the maximum amount a person can be charged for their energy, from 1st April. 

To avoid the price hikes, switch to a fixed energy deal to lock in your price-per-unit energy price which will protect you from the upcoming price rises.
