Unlike gas, mains electricity is available almost everywhere in the UK

High street giant Marks & Spencer has added gas and electricity to its long list of product lines.

The new service, called M&S Energy, will be provided in partnership with gas and electricity supplier, Scottish & Southern Energy (SSE). 

Store vouchers

Customers signing up to M&S Energy will receive energy saving advice and M&S store vouchers as incentives to encourage them to reduce their energy usage - with the aim of saving them money and helping the environment.

Customers who choose M&S Energy for their gas and electricity (known as 'dual fuel') will also receive a £20 M&S voucher when they sign up and a further £10 for each year they stay with the supplier.

Adding to the tariff's 'green' credentials, for every unit of electricity used by M&S Energy, SSE will secure an equivalent amount from hydroelectric sources.

Scottish & Southern Energy satisfaction

SSE featured in the recent Which? energy supplier survey and received an overall score of 60% for customer satisfaction - significantly better than its big six competitors.

M&S Energy will be sold through M&S stores and through a new energy website, which launches on Monday 27 October.
