    I switched from SP and moved to Ovo on one of their fixed term deals.

    This is getting out of hand now!

    Does anyone know how i could guess my new price per unit on my tarrif,,i know it will be different amounts on each tarrif the rise it but using the 19% and 10% as the bench mark.

    It would give me a better idea if to fix or not.

    My current prices are

    Electricity primary 17.277 pence per kWh Electricity secondary 10.031 pence per kWh Gas Primary 5.033 pence per kWh Gas secondary 3.647 pence per kWh

    Would i just say for eg get the 17.277 + 10% and come up 19.047?

    or just add 10% to my yearly electricity bill,same 19% for gas


    thanks i know it sounds confusing just hope someone understands me:money:

    Look at http://www.scottishpower.co.uk/campaigns/our-price-changes.aspx and follow your method of payment. You will then get all the Tarrifs and their new costs

    just done a fix to EDF Fixed Energy 2 fixed to Sept 2012. USwitch suggested a saving of £150 against SP Online Energy 11 based on my previous year consumption. I'm assuming the comparison is on the current prices SP Online 11 and not the revised.

    When we came off an SP Fixed Rate we opted for 'Online Energy Saver 13'

    With this extortionate price rise what options do we have?....other than freezing to death

    This has been on the cards for the last 3 months. I was on a capped deal till feb then went on an online save, about a month ago I changed to the 3 year capped deal that has a breakdown and service contract built in Free???.

    I worked out that it was about 22% higher than I was on at the time, but thought it would be worth the risk over summer low usage, and change back at the start of the winter if prices did not go up.

    I will be very nearly breaking even with this rise with another 21/2 years of the fixed to run, Glad I took the plunge now;)

    Being cynical this wouldn't have anything to do with their inept administration of contract opt-outs last month? one way to keep all the custommers they've 'slammed' onto long term capped contracts with steep exit fees believing they did the right thing would be an immediate price hike?

    Hmm, unsure what to do here. I'm with BG and on their Fixed 2011 tariff which ends in September.

    Tempted to move to their newer June 2012 tariff and pay the £100 penalty but really not sure whether to wait until this one runs out.
