Alex Neill, Which? Managing Director of Home Products and Services, said:
“This price rise will be infuriating for E.ON customers who have already seen the removal of dual fuel and paperless discounts earlier this year.
“This completes a full house of Big Six price hikes, giving millions of standard variable tariff customers yet further incentive to switch and potentially save over £400 a year.”
Notes to editors:
- Customers looking for cheaper energy deals can compare deals with Which? Switch, a transparent and impartial way to compare energy tariffs and find the best gas and electricity supplier.
- Savings are the difference between the priciest Big Six standard tariff and cheapest tariff, based on a dual-fuel tariff available in all regions of England, Scotland and Wales for an average user (using Ofgem averages of 3,100kWh of electricity and 12,000kWh of gas per year), paying by monthly direct debit, with paperless bills. Data is from Energylinx. Prices given are averages across regions, are rounded to the nearest whole pound and correct on 19 June.
