Packages on offer

Economy 7 No Standing Charge Tariff

Pay less for gas and electricity used during the night-time period. This is a dual fuel tariff with discounts because you are using both fuel supplies. No standing charge applies so you only pay for what you use. To take advantage of this package you must have an Economy 7 meter (it is free to switch). Day-time rates are higher but this package is great for those who use larger amounts of energy throughout the night (for storage heaters, night cycles of washing machines and dish washers, etc).

Online dual fuel tariff

Get discounts for choosing EDF for both fuels and manage your bills online.

Green Electricity Tariff

The green tariff lets you choose to obtain your electricity from renewable sources such as wind and hydro. You will pay a small premium over non-green customers, but can be safe in the knowledge that your money is going to a good cause. Subscribers to this tariff will also receive a green information pack and energy saving lightbulbs.

Prepayment Tariffs

After installation of a prepayment meter, customers can pay for their gas and electricity as they use it with no need for bills or meter reading. Prepay customers pay for their energy at exactly the same rate as other customers, so are not penalised for their choice of payment method.

Nil service charge

For those who wish to pay only for units they have actually used.

    I came here to join SWEB but reading above reviews have changed my mind it seems such poor company regarding customer service.

  2. G. Harvey says:

    I am going to demolish a workshop which has an electricity supply. Residential accomodation will be built to replace the workshop but in so doing the electricity supply will need to be removed and then replaced for the new build. Who do I contact to arrange this. In passing your telephone service is appaling. Customers are told that you are experience high volumes of calls. This is just a poor excuse for understaffing.

  3. Paul Sousek says:

    What was the cause of all the mini power outages in Truro TR1 area last evening from 21.30 hrs to 2300 hrs. please. This affected our acute hospital along with the rest of Truo requirements.

  11. Trevor Thomas says:

    must be one of the worst companies in the country for power cuts when the weather gets windy only because of bad practices, sorry but unable to even rate this company at this time
