Ofgem has appointed Scottish Power to take on supplying Yorkshire Energy’s (also known as Daisy Energy) 74,000 domestic customers and a small number of non-domestic customers. This follows a competitive process run by Ofgem to get the best deal possible for customers.
Scottish Power is offering customers a competitive tariff. Outstanding credit balances, including money owed to both existing and former domestic customers of Yorkshire Energy, will also be honoured. Scottish power will absorb a significant portion of the costs of honouring customers’ credit balances and the migration of customers.
For existing customers, energy supplies will continue as normal as they switch over to Scottish Power on Sunday 6 December 2020.
Customers of Yorkshire Energy will be contacted over the coming days about the changes. If customers wish to switch supplier they should shop around. Customers will not be charged exit fees if they decide to switch to another supplier.
Philippa Pickford, Ofgem’s director of retail, said:
“I am pleased to announce we have appointed Scottish Power for the customers of Yorkshire Energy. Their energy supply will continue as normal and domestic customer credit balances will be honoured.
“Scottish Power will be in contact with customers over the coming days with further information. Once the transfer has been completed, customers can shop around for a better deal if they wish to.”
