Scottish Power - How Long Is The Contract For ?

Hi - worse thng we ever done was switch to SP - started off at 98.00 for gas & electricity last Septemeber - then December they sent letter putting it up to 123.00 then yesterday another letter saying they are increasing it again March 7th to 168.00 - what is going on ! I was with npower & BG before and paid them 68.00 and 52. a month and was always in credit come the end of the year by at least 200 with both - I thought being on a fixed rate until July 09 would mean it wouldn't be charged at the higher rate but it must be - I know the prices have gone up but this is an outrage - tried caling them but they are always experiencing high level of calls and they cut you off - I wonder why ! I have checked my documents we signed and cannot see anything regarding contract period - is there one ? if so does anyone know how long it is for and what they charge to come out early - I have got to get away from them this is daylight robbery :mad:

    Check their website - they have details of previous products there:


    If it's the Fixed Price 2009, there is a penalty.

    I take it you mean 'no frills'?! The terms and conditions of current products are at the back of the pricing 'booklets' on the wesite. Probably no penalty if it's the standard tariff.
