As a large supplier, E.ON Next energy tariffs include a selection of fixed, variable, pay-as-you-go and prepayment gas and electricity deals. It’s fairly priced sat next to its competitors and gets good customer service ratings.

  • 100% renewable electricity included as standard.

  • Exclusive home solutions discounts

  • Online account management

  • Cheaper prices when pay by Direct Debit

E.ON Next prepayment tariffs

E.ON Next offers a single tariff for customers who use a prepayment meter that they top up using a key or card. If you’re on this kind of plan, you’ll be given a key or card that you can top up at shops and service stations.

No exit fee applies for prepayment customers.

E.ON Next pay-as-you-go tariffs

E.ON Next’s pay-as-you-go tariff is called Smart Pay As You Go. It operates much like a prepayment tariff but is combined with a smart meter to give you a clearer picture of your usage.

E.ON Next Economy 7 and Economy 10 tariffs

Economy 7 and Economy 10 tariffs provide cheaper electricity for certain times during the day. 

Economy 7 offers you seven hours of off-peak energy during the night. 

With Economy 10, you get those seven hours during the night, plus three hours in the day, usually in the afternoon.

These tariffs are a great option if you have electric storage heaters and/or a hot water cylinder, because you can use the cheaper off-peak hours to charge the storage heaters and heat your water for the day ahead.

You can also use timers to set appliances, such as your washing machine and dishwasher, to run during these off-peak hours and get the cheaper rate.

Charging devices at night, like phones, laptops and iPads, is a good idea too.

To benefit from being on Economy 7 and Economy 10, compared to being on one of E.ON Next's other tariffs where they charge the same unit price throughout the day and night, you'll need to use at least 30-40% of your electricity during the cheaper rate, or 'off-peak' hours.
