Last update: June 2021

Where makes E.ON different?

E.ON places a heavy focus on green energy . In 2016, they committed to omitting all renewable energies from their fuel mix. This made them pretty popular among customers who wanted to fuel their homes with greener energy.

What makes E.ON stand out among the rest of the 'Big 6' (the 6 largest energy suppliers in the UK) is the fact that they provide 100% renewable electricity to their customers. While E.ON cannot claim to be the 'greenest' energy provider on the market, they are certainly more environmentally friendly than their competitor over at British Gas, for example. This has certainly attracted a lot of customers looking to switch to renewables, as well as sticking with a reputable supplier.

E.ON & E.ON Next Tariffs, Plans and Offers in 2021

E.ON have a wide range of energy tariffs for their customers. These include fixed, variable, dual and single fuel tariffs. If you are a new or old customer, you can choose between any of these plans to find one that suits your household's specific energy requirements.

As you can see in our dedicated tariff page, E.ON is at a turning point of its tariff offer. Indeed over the next 2 years, E.ON will gradually be moving people from its current E.ON tariffs to its new set of E.ON Next tariffs. While this is an internal revolution, the transition should be smooth for customers as new customers will simply be encouraged to subscribe to E.ON Next tariffs making the shift smooth and progressive.

In the section bellow we will therefore detail the E.ON Next tariffs. They are similar to the preexisting E.ON tariffs so you won't be lost.

E.ON Next Drive

In order to sign up for this plan, you must have an electric vehicle. By signing up, you'll get a reward of 850 miles, which equates to around £30. But the most important feature of this tariff is the fact between midnight and 4am you’ll only pay 4p per kWh. The best timing to charge that car of yours.

What is E.ON's best plan?

Remember, E.ON's best plan for one household might not be the best plan for yours. And this is the case for all suppliers. Your energy requirements may vastly differ to those of your neighbours, friends or other family members. So just because you have heard good things about one plan, that doesn't mean that you should automatically opt for that specific plan. It's important to weigh up all the options available to you, as well as taking into account your specific priorities.

Reviews ⭐

What do their customers say?

According to TrustPilot, E.ON ranks 3.8/5 in terms of customer satisfaction based on reviews from over 11,600 customers. 54% of reviews considered the service to be 'excellent', compared with 21% who deemed it 'bad'.

In general, E.ON's customers have reported a relatively mixed bag of reviews. Some deem the service to be excellent, whereas some consider it to be terrible, for a multitude of reasons. E.ON tends to rank in a fairly average market position according to Trustpilot reviews, however. The area in which E.ON ranks the lowest in terms of its customer reviews, however, is its response to customer complaints. E.ON's reputation was somewhat stained in 2014, when Ofgem required them to pay up £12 million to over 330,000 customers due to poor practice since 2000.

Fuel mix

Do E.ON have a renewable energy plan?

In short, yes. E.ON offers all their customers smart meters and has provided around 2 million homes with them. We recommend installing your home with a smart meter, since it allows you to stay on top of your energy usage, and consider options for consuming less, or being more responsible with your energy supply.

E.ON's renewable plans

E.ON provide 100% renewable electricity to their domestic customers and small business customers. Their renewable sources include:

  • Wind.
  • Biomass.
  • Solar energy.

How to contact E.ON

While some of E.ON's customers have complained about the difficulty in contacting them, there are multiple channels through which you can get in touch.

  • Firstly, E.ON have a pretty functional app where you can submit meter readings, pay your bills, and get in touch with them directly. The app is free to download, and contains all your personal and energy information in it, so you don't need to keep resubmitting this data.
  • If you want to speak to someone directly about your energy plan, you can contact E.ON on 0345 052 0000. This line operates between 7:30am and 8pm Monday-Friday. For a gas emergency, call 0800 111 999.
  • Do you want to visit E.ON's headquarters? You can find them at Westwood Way Westwood Business Park, Coventry CV4 8LG, United Kingdom. You might need to book an appointment if you want to speak to someone specifically, however.

Remember, if you want free, impartial information about E.ON, or indeed any energy supplier, you can give Switch Plan a ring between 9am and 7pm Monday-Friday to have a chat about your energy options, or even to make a switch over to a different energy plan or supplier.

How to submit a meter reading to E.ON?

Submitting a meter reading to E.ON is pretty simple, and there are 3 main ways you can do this.

  • Via their mobile application
  • On the phone.
  • Through logging into your online account.

So, firstly, you can download their free app. This is a pretty smooth running app that has received good reviews from their customers. Here, you can submit your meter reading, easy and quickly.

Secondly, you can log into your online account with E.ON. You can create an account today and submit a meter reading on the same day, if you wanted! You don't need to have an account already to submit a meter reading.

Finally, if you're a technophobe and want to speak to someone directly, you can ring them up and speak to a real human. You will need some extra information on hand if you choose this option, such as your postcode, your energy consumption and your current plan, but this will all be provided on your most recent energy bill.

If you don't want to keep submitting your meter reading online, on the app or on the phone, then you should probably get a smart meter installed! This means that your meter reading will be automatically submitted to E.ON, and you don't have to do anything.

Additional Information on E.ON

  • Founded in 2002, E.ON places a heavy and relevant focus on ensuring their energy is green and efficient. Between 2000 and 2002, E.ON energy was better known as Powergen. It became E.ON in 2002 as two German energy suppliers - VEBA and VIAG - merged.
  • In 2019, E.ON merged with nPower's domestic retail supply. This allowed them to expand even further. This year, nPower have also announced that E.ON will acquire the business energy section of their company as well. It is these acquisitions that gives E.ON Energy the second largest market share of all energy suppliers in the UK.

Does E.ON donate to any charities or provide any discount for their customers?

E.ON's main charitable partnership is with the Alzheimer's Society, raising money for support workers through charitable initiatives. They have raised 27,000 for the charity. E.ON invests in community initiatives, engaging students in career opportunities in STEM.

Moreover, E.ON, like many other large energy providers, offer a Warm Home Discount scheme for their customers who might be struggling to pay their energy bills during the winter. Why only during the winter? Well, in wintertime, energy prices increase to match demand. This is because, you guessed it, when it's cold, people need more fuel to heat their home! However, if you are on a low-income, you might not be able to afford the cost of this price increase. E.ON offer a discount to vulnerable people and those on a low-income to help them continue to fuel their homes and stay warm during the winter.

To find out if you are eligible for the Warm Home Discount, you can give E.ON a call. Bear in mind, you will probably have to provide details of your financial situation.
