EDF Energy offers joint-longest fixed price deal on the market

Based on a national average of regional prices, the annual dual fuel bill for a typical customer* on Blue+Price Freeeeze March 2017 paying by direct debit would be £1,340 a year.

Customers signing up to Blue+Price Freeeeze March 2017 will benefit from:

  • Fixed prices for four winters
  • No termination fees
  • A guarantee that the electricity a customer uses will be matched by low carbon electricity generated by nuclear power stations without paying a premium**
  • UK-based call centres

In addition to this new long-term fix, EDF Energy is also launching Blue+Price Promise March 2015, for those who prefer to fix their prices for a shorter period. It comes with a promise to tell customers if another supplier brings out a tariff which saves them the equivalent of £1 a week or more at typical consumption. Based on a national average of regional prices, a dual fuel bill for a customer paying by direct debit, would be £1,184 using typical consumption.* The tariff also guarantees that the electricity a customer uses will be matched by low carbon electricity generated by nuclear power stations without paying a premium**

Since EDF Energy launched its first Blue product in April 2012, over 1.6 million customer accounts have signed up to this innovative type of tariff.

Both Blue+Price Freeeeze March 2017 and Blue+Price Promise March 2015 will be available to dual fuel, and electricity-only customers. They will also be open to both new and existing customers.

Martin Lawrence, Managing Director at EDF Energy, said: “The popularity of our previous Blue tariffs has shown us that customers like the option of a fixed-price product. This enables them to budget more accurately as many consumers are worried about the increasing cost of energy.

“Blue+Price Freeeeze March 2017 is the joint-longest fix on the market and it gives customers peace of mind for the next 46 months. Blue+Price Promise March 2015 offers great value as a short-term option and also comes with no exit fees.”

Blue+Price Freeeeze March 2017 and Blue+Price Promise March 2015 replace Blue+Price Freeeeze November 2016 and Blue+Price Promise December 2014.

*Typical consumption as defined by Ofgem is 3,300 kWh electricity and16,500 kWh gas consumption and 5,000 kWh of electricity for Economy 7 meters.

**Both tariffs come with a guarantee that 100% of the electricity a customer uses will be matched by low carbon electricity generated by EDF Energy’s nuclear power stations. 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.

EDF Energy has appointed an external company to provide an audit of the company’s energy supply matching process – to ensure it does meet this guarantee.
