Who are Eon?
Eon is part of the Big Six, read more about its tariffs and contact details.
When it comes to green energy, Eon is ahead of the game.
Since 2019, all of Eon’s energy tariffs have been green as standard, meaning all its customers get electricity backed by 100% renewable sources.
The supplier also offers cleaner energy solutions, such as solar and heat pumps.
In the same year Eon chose to go green, it purchased npower, and since then all npower customers have gradually been moved over to Eon customers.
Once this is complete, npower will no longer operate and you can no longer sign up for a gas or electricity deal with npower. You can no longer get a gas or electricity deal with npower.
Cheap Eon Energy tariffs
As a large supplier, Eon 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.
You’ll likely find its fixed price tariffs to be cheaper than its standard variable tariffs, and you get the security of knowing that you will pay a fixed price each month until the fixed period ends.
Eon Energy fixed price deals and tariffs
There are four fixed rate tariffs available from Eon, the cheapest option being the Fix Online v44.
This is a 12-month fixed tariff, which means your rates will not change for a year.
All bills must be paid via direct debit and you will have to manage your account online.
Customers that choose this tariff will get 25% off boiler cover too. There is a £60 exit fee, should you choose to leave before your contract ends.
If you want a rate fixed longer than a year, you might choose Eon Fix 2 Year v12, which provides a 24-month fixed rate and no exit charges. This means you can easily switch if you find a better deal.
Eon Pay As You Go tariff
If you have a prepayment meter that you top up using a key or card, you have two different Eon tariffs to choose from: Energy Plan with Smart Pay As You Go or Energy Plan with Prepayment.
The rates for both tariffs are the same. However, the former is solely for customers with smart meters, while the latter is for customers with standard prepayment meters.
Both options are variable and do not include exit fees.
Eon 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 Eon’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.
Eon dual fuel tariffs
If you’re looking for simplicity with your energy bills, a dual fuel tariff could be your best bet.
Choosing to get your gas and electricity from Eon means you’ll receive a single bill that’s easier to keep track of, and can often make significant savings too.
Dual fuel options are available on a range of Eon fixed-rate, online and standard tariffs.

Existing Eon customers can easily switch tariffs by logging into their account online.
Once logged in, you can compare all the tariffs that are available to you, to ensure you’ve got the best deal.

If you terminate the contract fewer than 49 days before it ends, you will not have to pay an exit fee.

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.
