Cheapest Big Six energy deal beats the energy price cap by £172 - but ends soon

energy bills

You can save up to £172 on your energy bills and fix your gas and electricity prices for a year by switching to our exclusive E.ON tariff - but you'll need to be quick, because it ends on Friday October 8.

The good news is that Ofgem's new energy price cap comes into effect today, which means that approximately half the UK will see their energy bills fall slightly. However, these customers are still paying more than they need to. 

Our exclusive E.ON tariff undercuts the price cap by over £170, so if you're one of the UK's 11 million households on a standard variable tariff (SVT), you could save a lot more by switching provider. (And if you were previously on a fixed tariff but haven't changed tariff or provider in over 18 months, then you probably are on a SVT.)

All the savings shown below are calculated based on the energy usage of the average UK home, and compared with the new Ofgem price cap of £1,042, which came into effect on October 1.
