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 rate. You'll need to regularly be able to schedule a significant proportion of your total electricity consumption during this off-peak 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 from midnight to 7 a.m. in the winter months and 1 a.m. to 8 a.m. during the summer months. Note that these hours may vary depending on your location.

💳EDF Prepayment Tariffs

New customers can only switch to a prepayment EDF tariff by contacting EDF by telephone. Unlike other EDF tariffs, online switching is not currently available due to the energy crisis and a personlised assessment is required for the prepayment EDF tariff for new customers.

EDF Standard Prepayment Tariff

If you have a prepayment meter and haven't switched EDF tariffs in the past 18 months, you're most likely on the standard EDF prepayment tariff and paying at the rate of the energy price cap. This tariff's rates are variable, meaning they fluctuate along with the wholesale price of 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 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.

Fixed for Business Tariffs Fixed for Online Business Tariff Freedom for Business Tariffs
Fixed or variable Fixed energy prices for one to four years Fix your energy prices for one, two, three of 4 years Variable rates with 30 days notice of any change
