EDF Energy’s customers to see 12% increase on their bills

The price rise will affect customers on standard variable tariffs

The Big Zero report

EDF Group’s subsidiary EDF Energy has today confirmed that its customers on standard variable tariff paying by direct debit will see their bill increase by 12% from 1st October.

That follows Ofgem’s announcement of the new price cap just a few days ago.

The regulator said that energy costs have risen by more than 50% in the last six months with soaring gas prices leading the trend.

Philippe Commaret, Managing Director of Customers at EDF, said: “We know a price rise is never welcome, especially in tough times. In 2020, prices for our standard variable customers fell by an average of £100 a year, and we’ll cut prices again as soon as we are able.”
