E.ON has launched E.ON Clean Energy a fixed one year tariff purchased from 100% renewable electricity and green gas.

The tariff is currently the cheapest renewable tariff offered by the major suppliers(1), and unlike many similar tariffs will match 100% of both the electricity and gas used with renewable energy guarantees of origin (REGOs) and green gas certificates (GCC).

E.ON Clean Energy is priced at £1,064 a year based on national average dual fuel consumption(2). It is only available to customers who take paperless bills and choose to pay by fixed monthly Direct Debit.

Chris Lovatt, Managing Director of Residential at E.ON, said: “At E.ON we’re committed to developing sustainable solutions for our customers’ homes and this tariff gives our customers the choice to take a tariff which matches customer’s energy consumption with energy from a renewable source.”

Research undertaken with E.ON’s customer panel found that almost 40% of those polled would be interested in a tariff of this kind(3). With more than 20% of the UK’s electricity now coming from renewables and, due to EU targets, likely to increase to 30% by 2020(4), E.ON is focused on sustainable energy ranging from customer solutions for greener homes to renewable generation.

E.ON's generation fleet creates power from sustainable sources and as one of the world's leaders in renewables has invested over £2.4bn in renewable technologies in the UK over the last six years.

In the UK the company owns 16 onshore wind farms and five offshore wind farms, including a share in London Array, the world’s largest operating offshore wind farm, as well as two biomass power stations. E.ON is the third largest operator of offshore wind farms in the world.

As well as a clean energy tariff, E.ON also offers customers a solar PV and battery storage solution which could help customers reduce bills, E.ON Solar and Storage . Further details about E.ON Clean Energy and E.ON’s other products and services can be found at eonenergy.com/products-and-services.
