Calor, the UK supplier of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), is launching a new energy initiative with energy provider, ScottishPower.

Calor’s domestic and business customers, who continue to look for wider energy options and services, can now enjoy the benefits of the new ScottishPower Energy Points – which launched in the South West at the Bristol Calor Centre on 14th June.

Calor’s relationship with ScottishPower has led to the development of the new ScottishPower Energy Points at its own Calor Centre retail outlets, which will provide even more energy solutions including ScottishPower’s natural gas and electricity options that will complement Calor’s own wide range of LPG solutions.

The Energy Point has launched as a flagship pilot in Calor’s Bristol Calor Centre, quickly followed by a second Energy Point in the Midlands at Calor’s Potteries Showroom in Stoke-on-Trent. The Energy Points will support Calor customers, particularly in rural areas, who are looking for more sustainable and greener energy solutions that are both competitive and convenient. This forms part of Calor’s strategic vision of becoming a leader in rural energy services by 2015.

Susan Kinnaird, Calor sales and marketing director, said, “As Britain’s leading supplier of LPG, we understand the energy challenges that are faced by our domestic and commercial customers. Calor chose ScottishPower as both companies are strongly committed to delivering sustainable energy solutions in the environment. Calor’s LPG has the lowest carbon emissions for all fossil fuels and ScottishPower is the UK’s number one provider of renewable energy. This, combined with the high levels of customer service, is central to the outlook of both companies.”

The new Energy Points will provide customers with even more LPG gas and electricity deals, including fixed electricity prices from ScottishPower. The service will also offer a range of gas and electricity packages that can be tailored to suit individual requirements, whether lighting and heating homes or finding solutions that will help businesses reduce their carbon footprint with competitive and flexible options – all available throughout the year.

Alex Clayton, sales and service director, ScottishPower, said, “Like Calor, ScottishPower is committed to securing the future of the environment we live in. This means continuing to develop the most innovative and sustainable energy products, solutions and services, keeping customers’ needs at the heart of our business.”
