Eon Electricity Supplier Review of Rates and Prices
Eon or E.on was formally known as Powergen and generate and supply electricity in the UK. Here’s our review of their current prices and tariffs.
Eon is one of the largest energy suppliers in the UK for gas and electricity products for home and business use and has a vast array of tariff rates with different prices depending on where you live in the country. Certainly some of their variable rate tariffs are the cheapest in the UK if you are willing to pay by direct debit and manage your account online – which is very easy to do as our staff at electricity prices have this in our homes on a dual fuel tariff.
Review of Eon Tariffs
As mentioned above there are 9 tariffs to choose from which is almost double what most of the other electricity suppliers offer but these are mainly grouped into fixed rates and tracker style pricing. Here is what’s available from Eon.
- Standard tariff electricity comes with Tesco clubcard points with no termination charges if you want to change your mind at a later date. You also get a free energy savings pack and extra savings if you choose to pay by direct debit
- EnergyDiscount 5 – this is the same as the standard tariff except you get an additional 2% discount off your bill for the next 15 months with the energy discount 5 plan. As you can see from the number this is a limited offer as the plans 1, 2, 3 and 4 have already been subscribed to.
- FixOnline – current version 4 which means you can fix your electricity prices for the next 15 months and save around 0.5% on current average bills. So if you believe prices may rise this may be for you. There are no clubcard points with this offer and it comes with a £10 termination fee if you change your mind. You also have to manage your account online.
- Fixed Price -this is a fixed tariff that actually currently carries a premium to the standard tariff and you get clubcard points and do not need to manage your account online. A termination fee of £20 applies.
- Energy Saver Capped product – caps your electricity so you never pay more than a certain amount but there is a premium over standard tariff and a £30 termination fee applies. You get a free energy monitor and can register for clubcard points.
- Save Online Electricity – means you receive a small saving over standard tariff if you manage your account online.
- Track and save – tracks the British Gas tariff so long as your electricity usage is above 3,300 units per year (which is the average spend) they guarantee to beat the BG tariff.
- Go green is Eon’s renewable energy tariff and also has a bonus 500 club card points. There is a premium on this tariff.
- Warmassist is for folks over 60 years old and receiving the pension credit gives 15% discount off their standard tariff
