E.ON’s 5.1% gas
price reduction comes into effect on Monday 1February and reduces standard
dual fuel bills by £32(1) a year, equivalent to 3 weeks’ gas use(2).
The move comes despite market uncertainty and increases in non-energy parts of
the bill, making E.ON EnergyPlan the cheapest variable offering of the larger
suppliers(3). This remains true even after SSE’s gas cut comes into
effect at the end of March (29th).
Last Friday the
company also launched E.ON Energy Fixed 1 Year v19, which, being priced
at £769 a year for the average unrestricted dual fuel customer is one of the cheapest
dual fuel energy tariffs available in Britain today(4).The
tariff is available to new and existing customers. Any E.ON customer wishing to
change to the tariff can do so without incurring an exit fee.
