Chris Lovatt, Managing Director of Residential at E.ON
As our research shows, many people now choose to buy online from the comfort of their own home, often for convenience or product comparison. E.ON Go Online not only offers savings but provides our customers with peace of mind that their prices will be fixed for 12 months.
Chris Lovatt, Managing Director of Residential at E.ON

E.ON has today launched E.ON Go Online 1 Year a new one year tariff which is available only through E.ON’s website www.eonenergy.com and price comparison websites.

E.ON Go Online 1 Year is currently the cheapest tariff on the market offered by the larger suppliers(1). It is priced at £920 a year based on national average dual fuel consumption(1) and offers savings of around £230 a year when compared to an average of all dual fuel standard variable tariffs offered by the larger suppliers.

According to the Office for National Statistics online sales have increased by 15.1% year-on-year and now account for approximately 16.0% of all retail spending(2). Research undertaken by E.ON on consumers’ financial habits (3) found that going online is one of the main methods people use to ensure they are getting a good deal, with half of those asked using online comparison sites (55%) or choosing to visit individual company sites (49%).

Further research with E.ON’s customer panel found that almost 75% of those polled would be interested in a lower priced online tariff of this kind(4).

Chris Lovatt, Managing Director of Residential at E.ON said: “As our research shows, many people now choose to buy online from the comfort of their own home, often for convenience or product comparison. E.ON Go Online not only offers savings but provides our customers with peace of mind that their prices will be fixed for 12 months.

“As always, we urge people to find out if they are on the best tariff for their needs and encourage customers to visit our website to find out more and see if they could save on their energy costs by signing up to E.ON Go Online.”

E.ON Go Online 1 Year is offered to dual fuel and electricity only customers who pay by fixed monthly Direct Debit.
