EDF Economy 7 Prices

EDF Economy 7 tariffs are available for customers with Economy 7 meters. These tariffs provide cheaper electricity for seven hours at night in exchange for more expensive rates during the day. Payment methods include direct debit, cash, cheque and prepayment.

Typically, EDF Economy 7 tariffs are only used by customers with storage heaters. Since this type of heating system collects energy during the night, customers with storage heaters can save money on their electricity bills by taking advantage of the cheaper night-time hours. You'll need to consume more than a quarter of your electricity during this time in order to actually benefit from the cheaper price.

EDF Economy 7 times vary across the country. The seven-hour period of cheaper electricity generally takes place between the hours of 10 p.m. and 8 a.m.

You can find the electricity rates and estimated annual spend for customers with Economy 7 meters below. To calculate the annual electricity spend, we used the average annual electricity consumption for consumers with Economy 7 meters, which is 4,200 kWh of electricity per year, as well as the average consumption patterns, which are 58% during the day and 42% during the night.

EDF Electric Car Tariff

car

The EDF GoElectric tariff is a special offer for owners of electric vehicles (EVs). It comes in two different forms:

  1. A flat-rate electricity tariff — EV owners can pay from just 12.12p per kWh for electricity at all times.
  2. A two-rate electricity tariff — Get half-price electricity (8p per kWh) during a 10-hour off-peak period. Off-peak times for this tariff are weekdays from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. and all weekend. During peak hours, customers pay from 17.94p per kWh.

To switch to either of these EDF Energy tariffs, you must either own or lease an electric vehicle. To register for the EV tariff with two rates, you must a have smart meter that is compatible with EDF Energy. This would include all second-generation smart meters, as well as any first-generation smart meters that were installed by EDF Energy.

EDF Business Tariffs

EDF Energy tariffs for business vary from its domestic offerings quite a bit. Businesses do not have the right to the 14-day cooling-off period that domestic customers have during the switch process. This means business owners cannot change their minds and cancel their energy plan after agreeing to a new contract. Another difference is that EDF Energy tariffs for businesses tend to be for longer periods of time than domestic energy plans.

EDF Energy offers nine different tariffs for small business customers. These include one variable tariff and eight fixed-rate options. Fixed-rate tariffs range from one to four years. The cheapest tariff is the one-year fixed plan. However, you do run the risk of having to contract more expensive rates in the future if energy prices increase.

Edf Energy also provides fixed-rate energy tariffs for large businesses and corporations. The supplier also offers completely customized Performance Contracts for businesses spending over £1 million a year on energy.
