SSE and M&S Energy have announced that their partnership is set to end in September, with all M&S Energy customers to be transferred to the big six supplier.
The M&S Energy brand, which has been in partnership with SSE for nine years, will no longer offer energy under the big six provider’s supply licence.
According to SSE, there will be no interruption to your supply, all M&S Energy customers are already supplied by SSE under a so-called ‘white label agreement’ – where the energy and customer service is supplied by SSE but sold under the M&S Energy brand.
This will continue, the only change will be the M&S Energy branding disappearing from bills and other communication.
If you’re on a fix with M&S Energy, your current deal with continue as normal – you’ll pay the same rates and any exit fees will apply if you want to switch away early – until the fixed period ends.
If you’re on a variable tarif, you’re free to switch away without penalty at any time as these deals don’t have exit fees.
SSE has also told us it will honour the renewable commitment on M&S Energy tariffs, either until 29 September for variable customers, or until the end of fixed-term deals.
