Why is my E.ON bill so complicated?

Energy bills aren’t purposely complicated. It’s simply that there’s a lot of information – but it’s all there to give customers greater visibility of tariffs, usage and consumption. Knowing all of this stuff can help customers find a better deal. 

Why should I switch energy supplier from E.ON?

The main reason people switch is to find a better deal. Our customers saved £335 on average on their annual energy bills^^. But if that’s not reason enough, then others include poor customer service or wanting to find a green energy supplier.

The best bit about energy switching, is that your new gas and electricity provider, does all the running around. They’ll be the ones that sort out all the admin and organise a date for when the big switch happens. The only things you’ll need to do, are pay off any outstanding bills; make sure you’ve claimed back any credit and provide an up-to-date meter reading to your new supplier. You can find all the information you need in our simples guides: The switching process explained and switching energy suppliers

When can I switch from E.ON?

E.ON customers can switch supplier at any time, but will need to consider any exit fees for leaving a fixed tariff early.

It’s worth noting that you should receive a letter of notice between 42 and 49 days before your existing fixed rate tariff is due to end; once you’ve in the last 49 days of your fixed tariff, your supplier can’t charge you an exit fee if you decide to switch. It’s all part of industry regulator, Ofgem’s attempts to make sure customers are treated fairly.

Why leave E.ON when they could give me a cheaper tariff?

Suppliers are bound by Ofgem rules to tell customers about their own cheaper tariffs, but
who’s to say an even better deal won’t be found with another supplier altogether?

Customers are realising that loyalty doesn’t pay and 2016 proved to be a record year for numbers of switches with more than five million people making the change. And the savvy switching trend looks set to continue, with more than 400,000 consumers switching supplier in February 2017 alone – that’s up a fifth from January. With those stats, it’s clear there must be something in this switching lark – so, why not see what all the fuss is about and try it for yourself?
