Manage your account
What is MyAccount?
MyAccount gives you instant 24/7 access to your energy account online.
It only takes a minute to set up your MyAccount – all you need is your:
- EDF account number (12 digits long and it starts with ‘67’)
You can find your account number in the top right hand corner of your EDF bill, within your Welcome Pack, or in your 'Start Managing Your Account' email.
Once you’ve set up your account, you can manage your energy online the quick and easy way. If you have more than one EDF account, we should be able to link them all to one MyAccount log in. Just contact us and we'll look into it for you.

Can I have more than one name in MyAccount?
Unfortunately we can only show the main account holder’s name in MyAccount. But that doesn’t mean the names you’ve added aren’t on the account - check your bill to see them.

- Follow the onscreen instructions
Change tariff in the EDF app

How to access MyAccount
When you're setting up MyAccount, you'll receive an email to verify your email address. Sometimes emails are automatically sent to 'spam' or 'junk' folders. So if the verification email hasn’t reached your inbox please check your other folders.
If you’re using a password manager, you might see a security error message when logging in to MyAccount from the EDF home page. Simply ignore this message and click on ‘continue’ as our log in form is secure. Alternatively, you could use our MyAccount log in page, which shouldn’t show any error messages.
To log out of MyAccount, click 'Accounts' in the top right hand corner of your screen, and select 'sign out'.
Accessing MyAccount when you leave EDF
You can log in (or set up MyAccount) for 180 days after you have left EDF.
After this time you won't be able to log in and view any information.

Does EDF have an app I can use?
What can I do in the app?
You can get the most of Energy Hub in MyAccount after you create your energy profile – all we need is a few quick details about your home.
Once you've created your profile, you can get:
- a personalised view of how much energy you use around the home on things like lighting, heating and cooking
- tailored energy-saving advice that can help you cut your energy costs around the home, based on your energy use.
How do you work out my energy use and trends?
Your energy use and trends come directly from your smart meter, so the data is very accurate. You might see estimated or missing readings from time to time, because smart meters occasionally drop off the network. But you don't have to worry, as this is quite normal. Your meter usually reconnects automatically, and will quickly start sending readings again to bring everything up to date.
What's my Energy Breakdown?
Your Energy Breakdown tells you approximately how much energy you've used on things like lighting, heating and cooking. It's based on your meter readings, your energy profile and other factors, like the time of day and weather. Over time, as we get more data from your meter, your breakdown will become more and more accurate. The accuracy of your breakdown also depends on you keeping your energy profile up to date, so please remember to let us know of any relevant change.
Why are some parts of my energy graphs estimated?
If your smart meter doesn’t send us a reading for any reason, we’ll estimate the energy you used during that time. We’ll base this on the amount of energy you’ve used in the past.
You’ll see estimated consumption on the graph as grey, while the actual amounts you’ve used are red or blue. If we’ve had to estimate the energy you’re using for several days, it’s likely to be because we’ve been updating the software on your smart meter – it can’t send us readings while we’re doing that.
Why is the energy use I see in my Energy Hub different to my bills?
The figures you see in your Energy Hub and bills both stem directly from your smart meter. But the energy use and costs don't look the same because:
- Your Energy Hub and bills cover different time periods.
- Your standing charges and VAT are built into your Energy Hub costs; these are listed separately on your bill.
- Your total bill is based on your meter readings, as well as any previous payments, instalment plans, credits and debits, and other charges.
