EDF is one of the ‘big six’ energy suppliers in the UK and - according to the citizens advice bureau - it's in a respectable third place out of 21 suppliers for customer service ratings.
There are a range of fixed and variable EDF Energy tariffs available to you.
Whether you have a prepaid meter, smart meter or standard meter, EDF Energy has a range of options for your energy.
EDF Energy's standard tariff is a variable rate. The price per unit can change at any time, but EDF will let you know if it's going to do that.
Standard variable tariffs do tend to be some of the most expensive options offered by energy companies. But because you’ll get told if the price is going to hike up, you can shop around and switch to a cheaper tariff in plenty of time. There are no exit fees whenever you do decide to switch.
EDF Energy offers a range of fixed tariffs to help you plan and budget. That way, you’ll know exactly how much your gas and electricity is going to cost per unit for a set period of time.
Packages may include:
EDF offers two different prepayment tariffs – an Economy 7 tariff and a standard variable tariff.
Although a standard tariff is variable, which means your bill can go up and down, these often turn out to be more expensive than other tariffs available
If you’re on a prepaid meter, you may want to think about asking your energy provider if you can switch to a different type of meter as they can be expensive.
All EDF tariffs are available as dual fuel, providing both gas and electricity to your home if requested.
You can use a price comparison site to find the EDF tariffs relevant to you. And compare gas and electricity prices to find the cheapest option easily. It’s worth checking out the other deals on the market as you could save money with a different supplier.
Because EDF is a larger supplier, if you qualify for the Warm Home Discount scheme, you could get back up to £140 on your bills.
Your energy costs will be calculated based on your current usage. The larger your house or household, generally the higher your bills will be.
EDF has a variety of ways to contact it – there's lots of information online, but also dedicated phone numbers and online chat.
EDF Energy only uses UK-based call centres.
While EDF doesn’t offer a green tariff as such, many of its tariffs promise to use low-carbon electricity generation.
EDF are part of the Energy Switch Guarantee. What this means is that EDF will take responsibility for the switch of your account from your current energy provider.
You won't have to contact your old supplier. EDF will do that for you and confirm your switch date over to it.
Ofgem says that switches can take up to 21 days (including a 14-day cooling-off period). But they usually take around 17 days.
