What tariff am I moving to?
Green customers are moving onto our Flexible 6 tariff, Economy 7 customers will move to the E7 version of this tariff. This is a standard variable tariff and the cheapest we have available, given today’s wholesale costs. This tariff is protected by Ofgem’s price cap and rates are fixed until 1 April 2022, when the price cap will be revised. This tariff has no exit fees.
We adjust our prices in line with Ofgem’s price cap and to reflect wholesale-energy price changes. Ofgem reviewed the price cap in August and the latest price cap came into effect on 1 October 2021. To find out more about these changes, visit our Price Cap FAQs.
