Energy Action Scotland Reaction to the Call for a Revision of the Distribution Price Control Mechanism and a Move to National Pricing on Electricity Bills

Norman Kerr, Director of Energy Action Scotland said:

“Rural premiums on energy bills are undoubtedly a burden on those living in rural areas. However, there appears to be a fundamental misunderstanding that companies like SSE choose to add a premium to the bills of customers in the north of Scotland when in fact it is part of a distribution price control mechanism that applies to any supplier to that part of the country.
