Last updated: April 2022

In 2021, it’s essential to keep switching energy suppliers to ensure that you’re getting the best tariffs for your household’s needs. With more than 50 energy suppliers across the UK to choose from, there’s always an excellent chance that you could enjoy better unit rates and standing charges for your gas and electricity. Yet, for many, the familiarity of the “Big 6” energy suppliers can be difficult to escape. Fortunately, even if you prefer to remain with the biggest names in UK energy, you can still make impressive savings. If you’re considering switching to EDF, you’ll want to find out more about EDF tariffs in 2021, and how they stack up against other suppliers, including the rest of the “Big 6”

EDF has a range of tariffs to suit most energy consumers’ needs, including fixed rate, variable rate and prepayment tariffs as well as tariffs for business customers. Please note that tariffs are based on UK average and may vary in your area. Rates are inclusive of VAT at 5%.

Let’s take a closer look…

EDF Variable Rate Tariffs

Does EDF offer business tariffs?

EDF Energy offers as many as 9 different tariffs for SMEs. However, as with all business tariffs, your rates will depend on the size of your business, where your company is based, how much energy it uses, and what your peak load hours are.
EDF can cater to businesses of all sizes, offering customised Performance Contracts for enterprise-level businesses that spend over £1 million a year on their energy.
EDF offers one variable rate tariff and 8 fixed-rate options, ranging from 1-4 years. While the one-year fixed plan usually works out cheapest, you may find yourself paying more in the future if energy prices increase.
