Electricity and gas tariffs

Protect your energy prices from rising by getting a fixed electricity and gas tariff. 

 

Fixed energy tariff vs Standard (Variable) tariff

With a fixed tariff, you pay a set unit price over the lifetime of your contract. So, when energy prices go up the unit price you pay doesn't change. It helps you budget better and gives you peace of mind. Today, fixed tariffs cost more, but will protect you from future rises.

A Standard (Variable) tariff means the unit cost can go up or down at any time provided they remain no higher than Ofgem's price cap. You don't get protected against what's happening in the energy market apart from the cap and you can't budget in the same way.

How long will it take to switch my energy to EDF?

How long the process takes depends on whether you chose to switch to us after or within your 14-day cooling off period.

If you chose to switch after your cooling off period, the switching process should take place within five working days after your cooling off period ends. If you chose to switch within your cooling off period, your switch should be completed within five working days (before your cooling off period ends).

In both instances, it can take longer if any issues arise along the way. For example, if your current supplier objects to the switch. We'll keep you up to date throughout, so you always know what's going on.

You can also track how your switch is going in MyAccount.
