By signing up for any of the EON energy tariffs, you agree to have a smart meter installed. The installation is free.

EON Economy 7 Tariffs

EON Economy 7 tariffs are available for customers that have Economy 7 meters. With these tariffs, EON customers get cheaper electricity for seven hours at night. This is in exchange for more expensive rates during the day.

EON Economy 7 tariffs are typically only used when your household has storage heaters. This sort of heating system collects energy at night and releases it during the day, thus allowing customers to take advantage of the cheaper night-time hours and save money on their electricity bills. You'll need to consume at least 30-40% of your electricity during the off-peak hours in order to benefit from and EON Economy 7 tariff.

In the table below, you'll find the EON electricity rates and estimated annual spend for its Economy 7 tariffs. For our calculations, we used the national average for electricity consumption for consumers with Economy 7 meters, which is 4,200 kWh of electricity per year. We also took into account consumption patterns, which are 58% during the day and 42% during the night.

EON Economy 7 rates
EDF Tariff Day rate Night rate Standing charge Estimated spend per year
Fix Online v43 18.900p per kWh 9.965p per kWh 20.426p per day £710.74
Fix 1 Year v4 19.219p per kWh 10.324p per kWh 20.510p per day £725.15
Fix 2 Year v11 19.219p per kWh 10.324p per kWh 23.798p per day £737.15
EON Energy Plan 19.219p per kWh 10.324p per kWh 23.798p per day £737.15
EON Energy Plan Assist 19.219p per kWh 10.324p per kWh 23.798p per day £737.15
EON Prepayment 18.900p per kWh 9.965p per kWh 28.151p per day £738.94

Note that the Fix and Drive v10 tariff does not offer Economy 7 rates, as this tariff only accepts dual fuel customers that pay a single rate for electricity.

EON Tariffs for Pensioners

It was reported in the Guardian that EON scrapped its Stay Warm plan, which was one of the EON tariffs for pensioners. It was aimed at benefiting thousands of elderly homeowners. The Stay Warm tariff offered fixed prices for gas and electricity. It was based on the homeowner's consumption from the previous 12 months and on wholesale market prices for energy.

The amount a customer paid was fixed for 12 months from when they signed up. As this meant no unexpected bills, elderly customers enjoyed peace of mind knowing that their bills wouldn't change.

Ofgem later unveiled reforms, including limiting the maximum number of tariffs a supplier could offer to four per fuel. Consequently, the EON tariffs for pensioners took the blow. When customers' StayWarm plan came to an end, EON renewed their price plans by putting them onto the more expensive standard tariff, the EON Energy Plan).

The termination of StayWarm will have a frightening impact on old people, particularly those who live alone in small homes, who pay a lower tariff, and will be obliged to seek other providers of gas and electricity. (Mr Howley, aged 80, EON customer)

Business Tariffs

EON tariffs for businesses include offers for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), as well as for industrial and commercial (I&C) consumers. These EON tariffs for businesses are very different than those for domestic properties.

EON Business tariffs include fixed-rate offers that last from one to four years. They also offer variable tariffs that reflect the wholesale cost of energy. For more information on the latest EON energy prices, head to our EON Business guide.

EON Feed-in Tariff

As of April 2020, the EON Feed-in Tariff (or FIT) scheme is no longer available. These feed-in tariffs rewarded customers that generated their own electricity from renewable sources, such as solar panels, and then fed it back into the grid. For a four-person household, the average amount made back from this type of tariff was £150 per year.

Even though the EON FIT scheme has closed, people who generate their own energy still have a way to earn money back through the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) obligation. These types of tariffs became available in January 2020. As with the EON FIT scheme, customers can make money from exporting energy back into the electricity grid. The difference with SEG tariffs is that EON sets the rates rather the the Government.

To apply for the SEG, send an email to segenquiries@EONenergy.com. It will take three to four weeks for EON to process your application.

Has EON raised its prices?

In October 2020, EON actually reduced the rates for its standard variable tariff by 7%. This was done in conjunction with the decrease in the Ofgem price cap, which fell by £84 from £1,126 to £1,042 for customers who pay via direct debit.

If EON energy prices increase when the next price cap is introduced, customers on EON's standard variable tariff will receive at least 30 days notice before any price changes are implemented. Customers on fixed-rate tariffs will not be affected by any sudden changes in pricing.

You can get an EON quote for your home on the supplier's website. Go to the homepage and click on 'Energy' in the top left corner. Then select 'Get an energy quote' from the menu. You will need to enter your postcode and house name or number. This is because pricing varies depending on your location.

For an accurate quote, we recommend you use your actual gas and electricity consumption. According to energy regulator Ofgem, the median annual usage is 2,900 kWh of electricity and 12,000 kWh of gas. You can find this information on your energy bill. If you don’t have a bill, you can use our consumption calculator to find out your energy usage.

EON Energy Tariffs FAQs

Let's take a look at some frequently asked questions related to EON energy prices and tariffs.

How much does EON charge per kWh?

The energy price per kWh depends on which EON tariff you are on. In general, electricity costs between 16.5p and 17p per kWh. Gas costs between 2.8p and 3.1p per kWh. As with most all suppliers, gas unit rates are much cheaper than electricity unit rates.

What is the EON standing charge?

Your EON standing charge depends on your EON tariff and your location. EON standing charges for electricity generally range from 20.4p to 28.7p per day. Gas standing charges tend to be higher. They range from 22.8p to 36.2p per day.

How much does it cost to leave EON?

Depending on your EON tariff, you may be charged if you decide to leave EON. Exit fees range from £0 to £30 per fuel for terminating your contract early. If you terminate the contract less than 49 days before it ends, you will not have to pay an exit fee. If you move home, you can take your EON tariff with you to avoid an exit fee.

Exit fees per tariff are as follows:

  • Fix Online v43: £30 per fuel
  • Fix 1 Year v4: £0 per fuel
  • Fix 2 Year v11: £0 per fuel
  • Fix and Drive v10: £30 per fuel
  • EON Energy Plan: £0 per fuel
  • EON Energy Plan Assist: £0 per fuel
  • EON Prepayment: £0 per fuel

What EON tariff am I on?

If you can't remember the name of your EON energy tariff, the most accurate way to find out is by looking at a copy of your bill. You'll see it at the top of the second page.

If you don't have a bill handy, head to EON's Tariff Information Label (TiL) page, type in your house number and postcode and select your type of supply contract (e.g. dual fuel, electricity or gas only, etc.). You'll then get a list of EON tariffs that people are on in your area. Your tariff may appear as the first result. If in doubt, call EON to find out.

How long do EON refunds take?

It's normal that your account will be in credit at specific points of the year. Your credit will automatically be deducted from your next bill. However, if you still want EON to refund you that sum of money, you'll need to submit an up to date meter reading. Do this online or by calling EON on 0345 055 0065. They're open Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm.

EON will process your payment within ten days. But if your refund hasn't been sent to you and 14 days have passed since you received your final bill, call EON on the above number.
