EDF is the UK’s biggest generator of zero carbon electricity and the largest supplier of electricity by volume in Great Britain. It owns and operates eight nuclear power stations and 35 wind farms that generate zero-carbon electricity.

Note: The zero carbon electricity purchased is supplied into the National Grid. Customers receive electricity via the National Grid, not directly from zero-carbon generators. UK Fuel Mix disclosure information, published by the Government (BEIS), recognises electricity from wind, solar and nuclear fuel produces zero carbon dioxide at the point of generation.

EDF energy reviews

EDF Energy customers have given the provider positive feedback on BazaarVoice. Many reviews were based on their customer service record and the tariffs they offer, as well as the overall switching process and how easy it was.

Reading customer reviews can give you a good idea about what it’s like to be with a provider, straight from the customers themselves. This means you can get an accurate picture of each provider before making your choice.

What happens if my energy supplier goes bust?

It is very rare for an energy supplier to go out of business, but it happened in 2016, with the collapse of GB Energy.

As happened then, any future collapse and its consequences would be managed by Ofgem, the energy market regulator. Thanks to Ofgem’s safety net, even if your supplier goes out of business, your gas and/or electricity supply will never be cut off or interrupted.

All UK energy suppliers are regulated by Ofgem.

In addition to guaranteeing continuity of supply, Ofgem works to move customers of a failed company to the best possible deal, with any debit/credit transferred to a new supplier that is chosen to inherit the business.
