E.ON launches ‘Smart Saver’, a no frills fixed one year tariff with the option of a smart meter

E.ON has launched a new no frills fixed one year tariff – ‘Smart Saver’ – which combines the peace of mind of a fixed one year tariff with the offer of a smart meter.

Available by telephone, Smart Saver offers people who sign up to it the reassurance that their prices won’t rise for a period of 12 months1 and is priced at £1,038 based on national average dual fuel consumption2. Customers who sign up must agree to be contacted about having a smart meter fitted3.

Smart meters are radically transforming customers’ experiences, helping them gain greater visibility of how much energy they’re using and helping make estimated energy bills a thing of the past.

With the help of the smart in-home display, customers can see what is using the most energy in their home in near-real time which can help households become more energy efficient. With a smart in-home display customers, can also set budgets and alerts so they know if they’re spending more on energy than they’ve budgeted for.

To find out more about this tariff, or to sign up today, you can contact us directly on 0333 202 4662. For more information about E.ON’s other available tariffs and solutions visit eonenergy.com.
