SSE currently has 3 live tariffs in the market. By live we mean a tariff that is available for customers to sign up to. Energy tariffs that are no longer available for sale, but which exist because many existing British Gas customers are signed up to them, are referred to as preserved tariffs. Tariffs that no longer exist are referred to as expired tariffs.
This is SSE's Standard tariff. It is a variable rate product which means prices are subject to change on 30 days advance notice.
The tariff has no fixed end date nor is there an exit penalty if you leave this tariff to switch to a different energy supplier. The tariff can be ended on 28 days notice, or 2 days if you are moving home.
For customers with a prepayment meter, this tariff is referred to as Prepayment Standard.
Standard Energy tariff rates were last increased on 15 November 2013.
