BBC News | Scotland’s north-south divide in energy costs

Our research that shows customers in northern Scotland on pre-payment meter tariffs paying nearly £100 more a year than Scottish customers living further south featured on the BBC.

Robert Buckley Head of Retail and Relationship Development explained that customers in the north of Scotland pay more because they have less access to the gas network and are reliant on electricity or oil, which is more expensive.

The costs of developing renewables is passed onto customers through their electricity bills, so bigger consumers of electricity will be paying more there too.
