Partners in the Hebrides Energy Company say they are keen to ensure local customers are on the best deal following the transfer of Our Power clients, including those who had signed up to Hebrides Energy tariffs, to Utilita as of January 31.

Hebrides Energy partners have been in contact with Utilita seeking a continuation of the competitive tariffs Our Power had offered.

However, given the rise in electricity prices, it is probable that customers will be placed on a tariff that is more expensive than had been available through Our Power.
