    EDF Offering a fixed price for gas and electricity until 2014

    "Fixed Price 2014 guarantees fixed prices until 31 March 2014. This means the price you pay for your Daily Standing Charge and each unit of energy you use won't change until this date."

    What do you think - worth fixing for this long? Do you think other companies are going to hike their prices like Scottish Power did yesterday?

    Penalty for leaving in the first two years, no penalty after that.

    EDF put their prices up yesterday (Gas by 18% and electricity by 22%) and these fixed prices are about 20% higher again! oO

    Where does it say that EDF put their prices up yesterday?

    Other companies will put there prices up as they all like more money.

    quidco for changing too. EON seems the best bet to me and first glance. a few of them offering fixed deals.

    I logged in today and had a message from them (they dont bother to email so was just lucky that I spotted it):-

    Your energy prices are changing
    As with other energy suppliers, we recently had to raise our gas and electricity prices for customers
    on our Standard tariffs. These prices have changed on 2 March 2011. You were not affected by this
    increase.
    Unfortunately, from 14 July 2011 we will now also be increasing our Online [email protected] Version 7 prices
    too. Your new prices are on the reverse of this letter.
    Still a great tariff
    Even though your prices are going up, you’re still on a highly competitive tariff. On average, a
    typical Dual Fuel monthly Direct Debit customer could still save up to 5.5% on our
    Online [email protected] Version 7 tariff when compared to our Standard tariff †.
    Plus, we guarantee your Online [email protected] Version 7 unit rates will continue to be cheaper than our
    Standard unit rates until at least 31 December 2011.

    Electric now 10.61p per unit (from 8.36p so 26% increase)

    Gas now 3.30p per unit (from 2.77p so 19% increase)

    The standard prices changed 3 months ago and the one from 14 July - Online Saver Version 7 - seems to be specific to just that tariff.

    I'm thinking that all the big suppliers are going to implement hefty increases in the next few months. Quidco don't have any big money on offer for Gas & Electricity at the moment. Also noticed that NPower, while offering £70 Quidco, state at the side that it's not available if you go for their Go Fix, Price Guarantee, npower one, Freedom Standard, Energy Bonus or Standard electric tariffs plans.
    Quite a few of those offering Quidco have lots of stipulations as to which tariffs qualify for Quidco.

    LOL read it as EDL..... X)
