Like all energy companies in the UK, E.ON regularly updates its prices and tariffs. These changes are made as a reaction to fluctuations in wholesale fuel prices and to other outside influences. As small changes to the unit price of energy can have a big impact on your bill, it’s well worth keeping an eye on these 2021 E.On tariffs changes. Especially since we are on the brink of a major change with the smooth transition from E.ON tariffs to E.ON Next 100% renewable tariffs.
Last update: April 2022

We Consider This A Stable Supplier

As you may have heard on the news, the UK energy market is currently under an immense amount of stress as a result of a global gas shortage driving up costs and putting several energy suppliers out of business. To learn more about this and stay updated on a daily basis you can read our page on the UK energy crisis.

If your current supplier is not to your liking, we can change that! By giving our experts a call at the number above, they can help you switch energy suppliers in under 20 minutes.

What is E.ON Next?

E.ON Next is the new face of the E.ON group. A new brand within the E.ON portfolio who’s is committed to play its part the transition to a renewable energy world. Indeed all E.ON Next tariff offer 100% renewable electricity and one of their tariffs also offers 100% carbon offset gas.

Obviously current E.ON customers will remain on their E.ON energy plan under the current conditions. Nevertheless E.ON will start encouraging new clients to switch directly to an E.ON Next tariff. Little by little, this will lead to an expansion of the E.ON Next brand.

Can I still subscribe to an E.ON Plan

As of today, when you request a quote on the E.ON website you are automatically redirected to the E.ON Next website. This proves the will to set up E.ON Next as the future of the E.ON group.

Nevertheless you can still switch to an E.ON tariff by calling the commercial teams.

Has npower changed to EON Next?

In 2018 E.ON acquired npower due to a swap of assets between the brands respective German parents Innogy and E.ON. Over the coming weeks all npower customers are gradually being moved over to become customers of this new E.ON Next brand.
Not much will change as both the npower teams and the E.ON Next energy specialists are there to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible. This transition has an impact on several brands of the group such as Powershop or Sainbury’s Energy.

E.ON tariffs compared: Which is the cheapest tariff in April 2022

Like all of the big six energy companies in the UK, E.ON offers a wide choice of tariffs. The supplier has both fixed and variable rate deals available as well as prepayment deals. Also you can opt to get both your gas and electricity from the supplier or go for a single fuel deal.

As we mentioned earlier, E.ON now encourages new clients to switch to their E.ON Next tariffs. But don’t worry, these tariffs mirror exactly the current E.ON tariffs solely making the 100% renewability applicable to all tariffs. We will therefore compare these tariffs based on the E.ON Next advertised rates.

As you probably know, the exact cost of energy will vary depending on the day and where you are in the UK. This can make it hard to compare prices without uploading your personal data. To give you an accurate idea, we picked a specific location in the UK and calculated the average annual cost of all E.ON tariffs there.

Below you can find the cost information associated with these tariffs.

E.ON price changes 2021

In August 2020, E.ON announced that it would be cutting its prices in line with Ofgem’s revised price cap. The cost of the company’s standard variable tariff was cut by around 7%. This reduced the average customer’s annual bill by £84 to around £1,042. This price cut came into effect on 1st October 2020.

This was the second price cut E.ON made in 2020. Earlier in the year the supplier had cut its variable rate by 1% in order to bring it in line with Ofgem’s previous price cap decrease. This price cut came into effect at the beginning of February 2020.

Since them it reverted back to a higher price in reaction to the increase of that same Price Cap and the associated wholesale costs.

These price reductions were seen more or less across the board, with all of the big six, and a number of smaller energy companies, reducing their tariffs by the same amount. As almost all energy companies were required to drop their prices in response to , it means that E.ON tariffs remained comparable with others available on the market.

Could you please explan why you have to estimate when i have a smart meter . On April 1st it was estimated April the 6th it was read. Also why has the standing charge doubled ?

William

Hi Brian, I am sorry to hear that your standing charge has doubled. This has probably been done because of the rising costs for suppliers to provide energy. And for your first question I don´t really understand it sorry. Could you specify what you are looking for? Kind regards, Alan Rijnders

For renewable electric you are charging a small fortune. I am trying to find compare sites but getting no where. 'Which' has given you a 2 star rating. I think that is 2 stars 2 many. You are telling people either starve or have heat but you cannot have both. We are not getting electric from Russia so see no reason for this big price rise apart from giving it to shareholders. Do not sent an email as i will block it as i prefer letters of a human to talk too. I want to see if i can get a cheaper tarrif without direct debits

William

Hi Sue, Thank you for reaching out with your feedback. I would like to state that we in no way are related to E.on Next. If you would like to see if you could switch to a cheaper supplier, give a call to 03308186223. Kind regards, Alan Rijnders

Hi There I am your existing client on variable tariff for gas and electricity , i want to move to fixed period , however you have provided me a quote in my on line accounts being more expense than than the Tarriff here above. I would consider for fixed two years if your new tariff for me would be as above ( electricity would be 19.34 p per unit with standing daily costs 24.88p per day, gas would be 3.45p per unit with standing daily costs 26.66p). Other wise , i have to move to a new supplier with cheaper one.
