Here we explain:
- What costs make up your electricity and gas bills
- Why energy prices change
- Which products and services we're offering to help keep bills down
UK Fuel Mix disclosure information, published by Government Department BEIS, recognises electricity from wind, solar and nuclear fuel produces zero carbon dioxide emissions at the point of generation.
The zero-carbon electricity purchased is supplied to the National Grid. Customers receive electricity via the National Grid, not directly from zero-carbon generators.
The below table summarises zero-carbon generation by company demonstrating EDF generating 32.4%. The data supporting the table below and the % values is sourced from a mixture of industry settlement data and the UK government renewable obligation database.
|ZERO-CARBON GENERATION SUMMARY BY COMPANY||2020||2020|
|Supplier name||zero-carbon||GWh of zero-carbon electricity generation||% of overall zero-carbon electricity generation|
|Fred Olsen Renewables||zero-carbon||1,100||0.9%|
EDF reduced Direct Debit Standard Variable Tariff price by £100 during 2020, £16 on average in April 2020 and £84 on average in October 2020 (based on dual fuel customer 2,900 kWh elec and 12,000 kWh gas)
£80 saving based on a Standard Variable dual fuel bill at typical consumption (standard meter – 2,900 kWh electricity and 12,000 kWh gas) averaged across all regions.

This figure excludes gains via SOLR/TS. Losses and switch back measured as a result of marketing-led activities between August 19 and July 21.
All of our home energy tariffs are backed by zero-carbon electricity as standard and are backed annually. At the end of each fuel mix reporting year we’ll make sure we have enough nuclear generation declarations to match the total volume of electricity supplied to all of our customers on zero carbon nuclear backed tariffs.
