E.ON launches cheapest dual fuel energy tariff in Britain priced at £769

By VictoriaBlake

E.ON
has made a new version of its one year dual fuel fixed tariff available which
is the cheapest energy tariff available in Britain today(1). E.ON
Energy Fixed 1 Year v19 is priced at £769 a year for the average unrestricted
dual fuel customer who pays by fixed monthly Direct Debit with paperless bills.(1)

The
tariff is available to new and existing customers. Any E.ON customer wishing to
change to the tariff can do so without any exit fee being applied.

Other key customer aspects connected to the tariff
include:

  • Price Alert: Once customers have opted in E.ON
    automatically tells customers of new equivalent fixed deals if / when they
    are offered

  • Discounts – simple and fair: These are
    provided as a clear monetary value, not a percentage discount. E.ON customers
    can receive:

        • Up to £70
          a year for paying by fixed monthly Direct Debit (£35 per fuel) or by Smart Pay
          As You Go;

        • £20 a
          year for having a dual fuel account;

        • Up to £10
          a year for paperless billing (£5 per fuel).

    • Rewards: Rewards are available for all residential customers who have an
      electricity or dual fuel account and opt in to E.ON Reward Points. Customers
      will be awarded up to 1,500 E.ON Reward Points a year, which are accrued on a
      daily basis and awarded monthly. These points can be exchanged either for Tesco
      Clubcard points or Bonusbonds Multistore vouchers. Almost two million customers
      have chosen to receive E.ON Reward Points since the scheme launched in December
      2013 and E.ON has given away more than £10 million worth of benefits to these
      customers so far. E.ON Rewards has recently been announced as the energy
      industry’s best rewards scheme by uSwitch.com in its 2015 Energy Customer
      Satisfaction Report, an independent report based on research with 5,300
      consumers.

    • E.ON Energy Fund: The £6 million E.ON Energy Fund has been set
      up to help people struggling with their energy bills. Eligible pensioners,
      families, people with disabilities or sickness, and those on low incomes can
      apply for help with the payment of energy debt and the provision or replacement
      of white goods and gas boilers. The E.ON Energy Fund is open to all energy
      customers, regardless of their supplier, and E.ON has so far helped more than
      2,500 households with some £1.5 million worth of support since the Fund
      launched in April 2015.

      Notes to editors

      1. E.ON Energy Fixed 1 Year v19 is currently cheaper than any unbundled (e.g.
        not contingent on a boiler purchase) tariff offered by any of Britain’s energy
        suppliers. The offer is applicable to dual fuel and electricity only customers
        across all regions on standard and Economy 7 meters. The comparison against other
        suppliers is based on tariffs that are openly available (e.g. excludes
        collective switch tariffs) using Ofgem typical annual consumption of 3,100 kWh
        for single rate electricity meters, 1,935 kWh day units and 2,365 kwh night
        units for Economy 7 meters and 12,500 kWh for gas. The offer is not available
        to prepayment, restricted hour tariff meters, gas only customers or
        non-residential customers. Average annual bill of £769 based on payment by
        fixed monthly Direct Debit with paperless billing (£779 without paperless bill
        discount). Correct as at 22 January 2016. E.ON can withdraw the tariff from
        sale at any time.
