Domestic & General inks five year partnership with EDF

Domestic & General, the UK’s leading warranty provider, has signed a five-year deal with EDF  - Britain’s biggest generator of low carbon electricity – to help provide even more households with peace of mind. The partnership will see D&G offer both service plans and insurance for boilers and home heating systems for  EDF customers.

The collaboration further exemplifies both EDF’s and D&G’s commitment to ensuring that people throughout the UK have the support they need to keep their homes warm and hot water running.

This important partnership serves to illustrate the company’s aim to keep growing and supporting customers in the sector. D&G already has an established presence in 1 in 3 households across the UK and this new partnership will allow Domestic & General to assist  EDF customers with their comprehensive services.

Kam Kandola, Sales Director at Domestic & General, said: “We are excited to start our partnership with EDF and proud to support one of the UK’s leading energy suppliers. At a time when the weather is still inclement and with many customers spending more time in their homes,  it is important to grant customers the peace of mind.”

Richard Hughes, Director of Sales and Marketing at EDF, said: “We want to help Britain achieve Net Zero, as we transition towards this we believe customers using traditional methods to heat their homes should still be able to access a range of service plans and insurance options to suit them. We’re pleased to be partnering with Domestic & General as they have an excellent track record in this area, we’re confident we’ll provide our customers with a product they’ll want to buy for their homes, as well as a great level of customer service.

About EDF 

EDF is helping Britain achieve Net Zero by leading the transition to a cleaner, low emission electric future and tackling climate change. We are Britain’s biggest generator of zero carbon electricity, meeting around one-fifth of the country’s demand and supplying millions of customers with electricity and gas.

With around 5 million accounts, EDF is one of the largest suppliers to British homes and businesses and a leading supplier of innovative energy solutions that are helping businesses become more energy independent. All of our home customers get energy tariffs backed by zero carbon electricity as standard.

We generate low carbon electricity from eight nuclear power stations, more than thirty onshore wind farms and two offshore wind farms, and operate one of Britain’s biggest battery storage units, one gas and one coal power station, thousands of EV charge-points, and combined heat and power plants. Wind, nuclear and solar all produce electricity that is zero carbon at the point of generation and have similar emissions over the build, run and retire lifecycles.

EDF is leading the UK's nuclear renaissance with the construction of a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C, and is leading the development of plans for a replica at Sizewell C in Suffolk. Hinkley Point C and Sizewell C will provide low carbon electricity to meet 14% of UK demand and power around 12 million homes.

EDF is one of the UK’s largest investors in renewables, with 1GW of renewable generation in operation and over 4GW in construction, planning and development across a range of technologies including onshore and offshore wind, solar and battery storage. We are constructing our largest offshore wind farm in Britain – the 450 MW Neart na Gaoithe project in Scotland which will be ready in 2023.

Our energy services business, Imtech, is one of the largest technical service providers in the UK and Ireland.

EDF is part of EDF Group, the world’s biggest electricity generator. In the UK we employ around 13,000 people.
