The Scottish Gas EnergySmart feature can be added onto any existing gas or electricity tariff (apart from WebSaver tariffs and the Standard Pay As You Go Energy tariff). It allows customers to track their energy through simple online graphs and tools that can be viewed from any laptop, smartphone or tablet.
It also provides an easy way for you to submit monthly meter readings so your bills are based on actual readings rather than estimates, saving you money.
Scottish Gas offers free loft and cavity wall insulation to homes that are in need as recognised by government.
