How households could save over £200 through switching their energy supply to EDF Energy’s Blue Price Promise June 2017 tariff:

1. Basis for claim

Industry reports from Q4 2015 suggest that consumers who were on a Dual Fuel standard variable tariff accounted for 62.8% of all UK consumers. EDF Energy is keen to encourage customers on such tariffs to engage in the market and search for cheaper, alternative tariffs by demonstrating the potential savings that could be achieved. The table in Annex 1 demonstrates the savings which could be achieved when comparing EDF Energy’s current Blue+Price Promise tariff versus the most expensive; and the least expensive Major Supplier standard variable tariff available on the market.

Annex 1: Comparison of EDF Energy Blue+Price Promise June 2017 against standard variable tariffs

Prices correct as at 20/05/2016. Savings message correct for a national average of regional dual fuel direct debit bills for customers receiving paper bills, based on Ofgem defined typical annual consumption of 3,100 kWh of electricity and 12,500 kWh of gas.
