An independent Scotland would be able to deliver a £70 cut in energy bills, and maintain the UK's energy supply.
Scottish Energy Minister Fergus Ewing explained:
Scotland's huge natural resources mean that we can supply electricity - reliably and affordably - and can help the UK keep the lights on and the bills down.
Scotland exports electricity to England and Wales every year - in 2012 a quarter of the electricity generated here helped keep lights on across the rest of the UK.
With the powers of independence we will deliver a permanent, ongoing annual cut in energy bills of £70 - by removing the Energy Company Obligation and the Warm Homes Discount from consumer bills.
