Scottish and Southern Energy launches “green” offering


Ian Marchant,
Chief Executive,
Perth, U.K. — (METERING.COM) — October 26, 2007 – Scottish and Southern Energy has launched a “better plan” green product that provides financial rewards to customers for using less energy.

“Better plan” offers a variety of incentives to customers to assist them to reduce energy consumption and cash credits will be earned based on the scale of reduction they have achieved – £15 for a 10 percent reduction in energy use in any one year and £25 for a 20 percent reduction. These credits are then applied as a reduction to the customers’ energy bills.

All “better plan” customers will be provided with a monitor providing real time display of their energy use and costs. In addition customers can benefit from savings and earn cash credits on other SSE services, such as installing cavity wall insulation, and signing up for free services, such as paperless billing and wiring checks.

Customers are also able to obtain 100 percent renewable energy at no extra cost.

Ian Marchant, chief executive of SSE, said:  “Through ‘better plan’ SSE wants to help its customers use less energy, save money and make a positive contribution to the environment.”

SSE supplies energy throughout the U.K. through its brands Southern Electric, Scottish Hydro Electric, and SWALEC.
