EDF Energy launches new fixed tariff Blue+Price Promise February 2017

EDF Energy, the UK’s largest producer of low carbon electricity, has launched Blue+Price Promise February 2017.

Blue+Price Promise February 2017 will replace the company’s existing fixed-price tariff, Blue+Price Promise January 2017, and is at the lower cost1 of £841 a year for a typical dual fuel direct debit customer2, based on a national average of regional prices.

  • Fixed prices for 13 months until 28 February 2017
  •  No exit fees at any time
  •  No charge for calling the UK-based call centres
  •  No extra charges for paper bills if customers prefer them 
  •  Industry-first ‘Price Promise’ – customers can check if they can get a better deal elsewhere with a personalised comparison of their tariff against the cheapest tariff in the market, available online from MyAccount or via the EDF Energy App
    A guarantee that the electricity they use will be matched by low carbon electricity generated by nuclear power stations without them paying a premium3

The current Blue+Price Freeeeze January 2018, which offers customers the chance to fix their energy prices for a longer period, is still available.

  1. Blue+Price Promise January 2017 will be withdrawn from sale on 20 January 2016. It was priced at £884 a year, for a typical dual fuel direct debit customer, based on a national average of regional prices.
  2. Typical use as defined by Ofgem is 3,100kWh electricity, 12,500kWh gas and 4,500kWh of electricity for Economy 7 customers
  3. Low-carbon electricity purchased for Blue is supplied into the National Grid. Blue customers receive electricity via the National Grid, not directly from low-carbon generators. For more information please see https://my.edfenergy.com/

EDF Energy

EDF Energy is one of the UK’s largest energy companies and the largest producer of low-carbon electricity, producing around one-fifth of the nation's electricity from its nuclear power stations, wind farms, coal and gas power stations and combined heat and power plants. The company supplies gas and electricity to 6 million business and residential customer accounts and is the biggest supplier of electricity by volume in Great Britain.

EDF Energy’s safe and secure operation of its eight existing nuclear power stations at sites across the country makes it the UK’s largest generator of low carbon electricity. EDF Energy is also leading the UK's nuclear renaissance and has published plans to build four new nuclear plants, subject to the right investment framework.

These new plants could generate enough low carbon electricity for about 40% of Britain’s homes. They would make an important contribution to the UK’s future needs for clean, secure and affordable energy. The project is already creating business and job opportunities for British companies and workers.

Through Our Better Energy Ambitions, EDF Energy has developed one of the biggest environmental and social programmes of any British energy company.

In 2014 EDF Energy received seven ‘Big Ticks’ in the Business in the Community (BITC) Responsible Business Awards. In 2013 EDF Energy received the Environmental Leadership for Behavioural Change Award in the national Environment and Energy Awards and was highly commended in the first ever pan European Corporate Social Responsibility Awards scheme for its Sustainable Schools programme – the Pod.

EDF Energy is part of EDF Group, one of Europe’s largest power companies. The company employs around 15,000 people at locations across the UK.
