THTC Customers who have moved to Utilita from Our Power’s Hebrides Energy tariffs will recently have received Welcome Packs showing their tariff and unit rates.  Utilita has advised this has been a complex process, but that they are now able to confirm the price structure for these customers, through a tariff called ‘Control’ or ‘Control +’.  

The unit rates on these welcome packs are showing a price increase from the 1st of June.  It is recommended that you look into whether you are on the best rate or whether it would be cheaper for you to switch away from Utilita. 

Both SSE and Scottish Power offer comparable THTC tariffs, the table below shows prices for tariffs that these companies have: 


All the rates above are for direct debit payment types

John Macarthur and Brian Whitington from TIG, along with Broadcaster Julia Hartley-Brewer, celebrate Tighean Innse Gall’s inclusion in the Parliamentary Review of 2018 at its launch in the Palace of Westminster.

This great honour of inclusion in the Parliamentary Review falls to those who exemplify leadership in public service and TIG is recognised for its Care and Repair service as a leading example in the country.

Monday 25th March marked the official launch of Tighean Innse Gall’s Energy in Transition project. Project Officers Alana Murray and Finlay Maclennan will be up and down the Western Isles aiming to lower 1000 householders’ energy bills by 5% in the next two years.

Energy in transition in the Western Isles empowers consumers to make informed choices about how they use, benefit the most from and pay for electricity in the home.  We will conduct the most extensive energy roadshow and advice home visit programme ever undertaken in the Outer Hebrides.

How will we do this? We will purchase a highly visible branded electric car, kitted with energising information and sparky consumer resources, this is an essential part of our project.

Energy Services Director Dan Morrison commented. “We are delighted to have Alana and Finlay delivering this extensive and ambitious project.

"The team will be visiting every area, proportionally, from Vatersay to the Port of Ness to ensure that everyone is helped in taking action in lowering their energy costs. We are excited to be getting out on the road to meet people, of all age groups, and to offer them bespoke energy advice, which will help in ensuring that they live affordable, healthier, and more sustainable lives.”
