Avoid SSE’s new prices with EDF Energy’s Blue tariffs

Customers looking to avoid SSE's new prices or who want to protect themselves from any potential price increases can fix their energy prices with EDF Energy for up to four winters - – but still leave for free at any point if they find a better deal.

Blue+Price Freeeeze March 2017 and Blue+Price Promise March 2015 both guarantee prices will be frozen for the duration of the tariff and come without an exit fee.

EDF Energy’s Blue+Price Freeeeze March 2017 guarantees prices will be fixed for the next four winters. Based on a national average of regional prices, the annual dual fuel bill for a customer on Blue+Price Freeeeze March 2017 paying by monthly direct debit would be £1,340 a year at typical consumption.*

Blue+Price Promise March 2015 meanwhile costs £1,184 a year at typical consumption, based on a national average of regional prices, for a customer paying by monthly direct debit.

Customers also benefit from an industry-first Price Promise** which informs customers if another energy supplier offers a tariff which is more than £1 a week cheaper (£52 a year) at typical consumption.

EDF Energy is committed to offering all its customers fair, competitive and prices. Its standard variable prices have been the cheapest offered by any major supplier for 37 out of 40 weeks this year.***
