Considering EDF Energy for your gas or electricity supply? Find out what are the best tariffs from EDF Energy with Selectra’s handy guide.

EDF Energy Tariffs and Prices

EDF Energy releases different tariffs on a regular basis, as do most suppliers, but this makes it difficult to get a good idea of prices.

New rules brought in by Ofgem in 2014 were supposed to simplify the situation by allowing providers to only offer a maximum of four main tariffs to new customers. However, the real price of energy from EDF still seems overly-complicated to figure out.

energy tariff quandary

So, let Selectra save you some hard work. We’ve put together a guide to EDF Energy tariffs to help you find your way around the energy giant’s offer.

EDF’s electricity is generated from gas, nuclear, coal, and renewable energy projects.

All prices are based on paying for energy the cheapest way by monthly Direct Debit. Paying by Direct Debit is cheaper because the unit rate is lower than other payment options.

We have used a detached three bedroom house with 3-4 people as our model for domestic tariffs.

EDF Energy tariffs for existing customers

As with most suppliers, existing EDF energy customers need to be on the ball to get the best deal. All great tariffs come to an end and if you don’t switch tariffs before your current one expires you will automatically start paying the standard variable rate. EDF Energy should send you a letter before the expiry date outlining what it thinks is the best tariff you should switch to.

Variable tariffs mean the price of your energy could go up or down. You should be informed of any increase in cost in plenty of time by your supplier so you can switch to a different tariff if you prefer. With a standard variable tariff there is no minimum term and there are no exit fees.

EDF Energy currently has three tariffs available only for renewing customers Easy Online Renewal Mar21, Easy Online Renewal Apr21v5 and Easy Online Renewal Apr21v6.

Of the three versions of the tariff, Easy Online Renewal Apr21v6 offers the best price for electricity, Economy 7 and for gas showing it pays to be careful about when you choose your tariff.

EDF Energy Business tariffs

There are some important differences between domestic and business energy.

Firstly, 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.

Business owners should also be aware that verbal contracts agreed over the telephone are legally binding in the UK.

Business energy deals also tend to be for longer periods of time than domestic energy plans.

Small business

Prices below based on small business using 100,000 kWh of electricity and 293,000 kWh of gas per year paying by Direct Debit. VAT is not included.

EDF Energy offer different fixed tariffs for business depending on the length of contract you choose. There are fixed price plans where the unit rate doesn’t change for between one and five years, depending on the plan you sign up to.

The cheapest tariff is this one year contract:

Are EDF Energy prices cheap?

EDF Energy is definitely not the UK’s cheapest supplier. However, it does receive a customer rating of Excellent from 67% from 5,328 reviews on Trustpilot versus 22% rating it bad, so some people are apparently happy to pay more.

Compare EDF Energy prices

EDF Energy is one of the UK’s Big Six suppliers. So, while it is cheaper than British Gas for example, EDF does not excel at low prices.

In general, smaller energy providers tend to be considerably cheaper as they are trying to attract customers from these well-established and somewhat complacent giants.

While the EDF standard variable tariff will cost an average household somewhere around £1,800 per year for gas and electricity together, other providers, such as Tonik Energy and Bulb, have tariffs that come in under £1,000 over the course of a year. It’s not difficult to find providers with both cheaper prices and better customer service!

Edf Energy tariffs and prices FAQ

Here are some questions people often ask about EDF Energy tariffs - and some answers!

Which is the cheapest tariff with EDF Energy?

At the moment, the cheapest EDF Energy tariff available to new customers is Easy Online 18 Month Fix May21.

How much is EDF Energy per kWh?

Energy price per kWh depends on which tariff you’re currently on. In general, gas costs around between 2.6p and 3.8p per kWh and electricity between 14.04p and 17.47p per kWh.

Is EDF Energy putting its prices up?

The company introduced a 10% price rise for standard variable tariffs in April 2019, this increase brought its rates right up to the Ofgem price cap limit.

Ofgem later lowered the price cap to £1,179 and EDF then lowered its standard variable tariff by 6% in August, bringing its average energy price in October to just £2 lower than the new cap at £1,177.

Is EDF Energy business cheaper than domestic?

EDF Energy business tariffs are usually more expensive than domestic tariffs for a couple of reasons. Firstly, businesses pay a higher rate of VAT on their energy bills; 20% as opposed to the 5% that consumers pay. Additionally, businesses have an obligation to pay theclimate change levy, which is something that domestic customers don’t have to worry about.

Does EDF Energy offer the Warm Home Discount?

Yes, the discount is available to customers who meet the eligibility criteria.

EDF Energy tariffs - the Selectra verdict

EDF Energy has about 6 million customers still signed up to it. Many people have a tendency to stick with what they know or assume the alternatives are not particularly better value. While, it’s difficult to find a good overview of your price options from EDF’s convoluted and confusing website, it’s easier to see from how closely EDF follow Ofgem’s price cap limits that giving customers the best prices is not a high priority for the giant.

However, there are plenty of great deals to be had for those who take the plunge and switch to a smaller provider. Price is one reason to switch and although, EDF Energy uses a lot of green energy, it is possible to find suppliers who offer 100% renewable energy at a better price.
