Our tariff T&Cs

 

E.ON general T&Cs of supply for domestic properties

1. About your contract

1.1 You and us

Your contract is between:

- you, the person (or people) responsible for the use of electricity and gas (we call that energy) we supply to the domestic property, and
- us, E.ON Energy Solutions Limited.

If your contract names more than one person, you’ll all be responsible – as individuals and together – for paying your bills.

1.2 Your contract with us

If you haven't agreed a contract with us yet, you're on what's known as a deemed contract. Your tariff will be our standard variable tariff, E.ON EnergyPlan. You can find details of your prices at eonenergy.com/ourstandardprices or call 0345 052 0000. E.ON EnergyPlan doesn't have an end date and the prices can go up or down at any time. We'll tell you 30 days before we put the prices up.

If you've agreed a contract with us, details of your prices and tariff terms and conditions are in the "Your tariff" section of your latest confirmation letter.

These things make up your whole agreement with us.

1.3 Confirmation letters

A confirmation letter may be sent to you by letter or email (where you've agreed to us sending it that way) to:

- confirm the details of your contract or a new tariff you've chosen, or
- remind you that your fixed term tariff is due to end, or
- if you're on E.ON EnergyPlan, tell you about changes to your prices or other terms and conditions

1.4 Your meter

1.4.1 Non-smart meters

Some meters record energy use at different times of the day separately, such as Economy 7 (E7) or Economy 10 (E10). If your meter does this, we may be able to offer you different tariffs with cheaper rates at times when other people are less likely to be using energy (off-peak). Rates for other times of day (on-peak) may be higher than the equivalent single-rate tariff. If you don't use a lot of energy at night, you may be better off on a tariff with a single rate rather than an E7 or E10 tariff.

E7 provides at least seven hours of energy at the cheaper rate and E10 provides at least ten hours. Some people may still have complex meters which have more than one off-peak time, or record heating use separately (these are no longer available).

We'll tell you what your off-peak hours are on your confirmation letters.

If your meter is exchanged, we might change your off-peak hours. We'll tell you about this.

1.4.2 Smart meters

We may contact you at any time to offer you a smart meter.

If you have a smart meter we may be able to switch it to E7 or E10 mode. Not all smart meters can be switched but we may be able to exchange your meter for one that can be. We'll charge you for this. If you previously had a complex meter we'll try to match your off-peak hours as closely as we can to what you had before. You'll still get at least seven hours on E7 and at least ten hours on E10.

If you have a tariff with cheaper off-peak rates, your bill or statement will show both the on-peak and off-peak use and charges.

We'll tell you on every bill or statement whether you could save by switching to a different tariff (see the "Could you pay less?" section).

To get a quote for a different tariff go to eonenergy.com/services or call 0345 052 0000.

1.5 Which laws apply to your contract?

For properties in England and Wales, the laws of England and Wales apply to this contract. For properties in Scotland, the laws of Scotland apply.

Nothing in this contract affects your legal rights.

If we decide to ignore one or more of the terms in this contract, the others still apply.

If a court decides that one or more of the terms in this contract isn't valid, the others still apply.

1.6 Transferring the contract

We might transfer this contract to another company. If we do, it won't affect your rights to end the contract. We'll share your personal data with the company, so they can carry on supplying your energy.

You can't transfer this contract to anyone else without our permission.

2. Joining us and leaving us

2.1 Becoming responsible for the energy at a property we supply

If you've just moved into the property or taken over responsibility for energy used at the property you'll be in a deemed contract. Get in touch with us as soon as you can. Then we'll be able to bill you accurately. We'll also be able to tell you about tariffs that might suit you better. Go to eonenergy.com/services or call 0345 052 0000.

If you move into a property where you have to pay in advance you may not be able to get any energy. Call us on 0345 366 5976. You'll have to pay in advance if you have a prepayment meter or a smart meter set to collect payment in advance.

If you're a landlord we'll charge you for any energy used and any other energy-related costs while the property is empty, unless we agree something else with you.

2.2. Switching to us

2.2.1. Changing your mind

When you switch to us from another supplier, you've got 14 days from when you agree the contract to change your mind - the cooling off period. Your confirmation letter will tell you when it ends.

If you do change your mind, tell us before the end of the cooling-off period using the contact details in the letter and we'll stop your switch.

2.2.2. Checking your credit rating

We'll check your credit rating to check you'll be able to pay your bills on time, unless you'll be paying in advance. We'll get information about you from credit reference agencies. We'll also look at our own records if you've been a customer in the last year. For more about this, go to eonenergy.com/personaldata or call us on 0345 301 4905.

Depending on what the credit check says, or if you don't want us to do a credit check, we might ask you to:

- pay in a particular way, for instance by fixed monthly Direct Debit
- pay a security deposit
- pay in advance. To do this we might have to change your meter. You may lose any discounts you had and you might not be able to choose from our full range of tariffs

If you don't keep to the conditions you've agreed to we may change you to monthly billing at any time.

If you want to change from paying in advance to another way of paying you must agree to a credit check.

2.2.3 Making your switch happen

It shouldn't take more than 21 days to switch you over to us, unless:

- you've agreed a later date with us, or
- your old supplier won't let you switch. This might be because you owe them money, or
- we've had trouble getting the information we need, even though we've done everything we reasonably can to contact you, or
- something's happened which we can't control

2.3 Your contract with us

When you agree a contract with us, it'll include a tariff showing how much you'll pay and any special terms and conditions. We'll send a confirmation letter with all the details.

You can switch to another tariff (or supplier) whenever you like. But if your tariff has an end date, we might charge you a fee, known as an exit fee, if you switch more than six weeks before that date. Your confirmation letter will tell you about this.

For more about our tariffs, go to eonenergy.com/services or call 0345 052 0000.

2.4 How we'll contact you

We won't send bills, annual summaries, details of price changes or renewal notices to you by email unless you've told us you want them that way.

We may also text or message you or use social media if you've given us those contact details. If you use the E.ON app we may send you notifications that way.

Please tell us straight away if you change your email address, social media account or mobile phone number.

2.5 Managing your account online

This includes everything you can do on the website, whether logged in or not.

If you give us your email address we may send you an email to let you know how to activate an online account, if you want one. By activating your online account you'll automatically be able to view your bills and statements online and complete other tasks. You can still choose to get bills and statements on paper unless you're on an online-only tariff, although this may affect any discounts you get.

By using your online account you're authorising us to carry out all instructions you give us through that account.

You must keep your online password a secret. Let us know straight away if you think someone else is using your online account.

Sometimes, your online account or our online services may be unavailable for maintenance or problems we can't control. We'll do all we reasonably can to get things working as soon as possible.

2.6 When we can disconnect your energy

If you pay in advance, your supply will turn off automatically if there's no credit on the meter.

If you owe us money, we can disconnect your energy, but this is only a last resort. If you have trouble paying we do everything reasonable to help. If we do end up having to disconnect your energy, we'll write first to tell you.

If you've got a smart meter, we can disconnect the energy without visiting the property. For any other kind of meter, you'd have to give us access to it. If you don't, we might have to get a warrant and we'll charge you for that.

We, or your network operator, can also disconnect your energy for safety reasons, or if we think you've broken the law. We'll charge you for what it costs us to disconnect your energy and reconnect it again.

You can ask us to disconnect the energy temporarily, for instance while building work is going on. Or you can ask us to disconnect it because you don't need it anymore, for instance because you're having the property demolished.

2.7 Ending your contract

Your contract will end when:

- you switch to another supplier, or
- someone else becomes responsible for paying the energy at the property, or
- we disconnect your energy supply, or
- the energy regulator, Ofgem, orders another company to take over supplying your property. This is very rare and the new supplier would contact you

We can change the contract with you if:

- you get a new meter fitted by your own agent or
- you start using the property as business premises

In either of these cases, call us in advance and we'll explain what you need to do.

3. How we work out what you pay

3.1 Your energy charges

We work out your energy charges from:

- the daily standing charge that applies to your tariff times the number of days, plus
- the unit rate(s) that apply to your tariff times the amount of energy you use

We then take off any discounts (see section 3.4), and add VAT.

Sometimes, you might also have to pay for:

- leaving the contract early. Your confirmation letter will tell you if you have to pay an exit fee
- replacing prepayment meter cards / keys or payment cards
- sending copies of documents like bills or statements
- charges for paying your bill late, getting back money you owe us or fitting a prepayment meter
- disconnecting or reconnecting your energy when you ask us to
- moving, inspecting, installing, reinstalling, testing (see section 7.4) or repairing a meter
- moving the meter to somewhere else in your property
- connecting to your local energy network
- getting into your property to access the meter or disconnect your supply

You pay extra charges if you have a Green Deal (see section 3.6). There can also be charges required by law or which our regulator says we have to collect from you.

To find out more about extra charges, go to eonenergy.com/additionalcharges or call 0345 301 4905.

3.2 Working out how much energy you've used

We work out your bill using a measure called kilowatt hours (kWh). We need readings from your meter to do this.

Electricity: your meter automatically uses kilowatt hours.

Gas: your gas meter measures how much gas you use in cubic meters or cubic feet. How much energy you get from that gas depends on things like gas pressure and quality. So we have to convert the cubic metres or feet into kilowatt hours. How we work this out is covered in law.

If you have a smart meter we may be able to get readings without visiting your home. Otherwise we'll send round a meter reader from time to time. Or you can give us readings yourself at eonenergy.com/meter-read or call 0345 052 0000.

3.2.1 Smart meters

Smart meters record what energy you use every 30 minutes and keep that information for up to 13 months.

Normally we'll look at your smart meter once a month to see what you've used each day, unless you've agreed that we can take a reading more often, or you only want us to take a single reading each month and not measure individual days.

We may also read your smart meter when:

- your prices change
- you move to another of our tariffs
- you move home
- you ask us to
- you switch to another supplier. In this case we might send them the reading if you've agreed to that.

3.3 Using estimated readings

We'll have to estimate how much energy you've used if:

- we don't have a recent meter reading when we're due to send you a bill or statement
- the reading doesn't seem to be right
- your meter is faulty, or it's been damaged or tampered with

We'll base our estimate on your previous readings. If we haven't got any readings, we'll base it on the average amount of energy someone in a property like yours uses.

If you don't agree with our estimate, you can give us meter readings at eonenergy.com/meter-read or call 0345 052 0000.

3.4 Discounts

You can see what discounts may be available by going online at eonenergy.com/services or call 0345 052 0000. Your confirmation letter will show what discounts you're getting at the moment.

3.5 Revised bills or statements

We may send you a revised bill or statement if we find out:

- the meter readings we used weren't accurate
- your meter wasn't working properly
- we had the wrong information about your meter

We won't ask for payment for any charges for supply of energy that could reasonably relate to more than 12 months ago, unless you've behaved unreasonably or prevented us from getting any information we need to bill you.

3.6 Green Deal

Green Deal is a Government scheme that means a property can have energy-saving improvements fitted which are then paid for through the electricity bills for that property.

If your property has a Green Deal, you're responsible for paying the Green Deal charges. We'll collect these through your bills and pay them to your Green Deal provider. If you pay in advance, we'll collect the charges through your meter.

Green Deal charges aren't included in the prices we agree with you when you switch to us or switch to a different tariff. We'll write to you about those charges as soon as we know what they are.

3.7 FiT payments

We're required to make Feed-in Tariff (FiT) payments under our supply licence. We can make FiT payments to you if:

- you've got a FiT installation which is accredited by Ofgem or the Micro Certification Scheme (MCS); and
- you get your electricity from us or from a non-mandatory FiT supplier when you apply for FiT payments

We pay what's set out in the Feed-in Tariffs Order 2012, as amended, and our electricity supply licence. You can apply to be part of our FiT scheme at eonenergy.com/aboutfit

4. Paying us

4.1 Paying us in advance

You can pay in advance through a smart meter or a prepayment meter. We may need to change your meter. You won’t have to pay unless we need to move your current meter. We may ask you to pay in advance if we think you'll have trouble paying your bills.

If you pay in advance you might not be able to have all of our tariffs. If you’re on a tariff that doesn't allow payment in advance we’ll move you to E.ON EnergyPlan, our standard variable tariff.

If you pay in advance we can set your meter to get back any money you owe us and what it cost us to get it back. We'd tell you about this in writing.

After we’ve fitted your prepayment meter, we'll agree with you whether you will pay any amount owing from your old way of paying in one go or whether you want to agree a payment plan with us to pay it off through your prepayment meter. If you pay it off in one go you must pay it within 14 days.

After we've fitted your smart meter, we'll send you a final bill or statement for your old way of paying. You'll have 14 days to pay it, unless we've agreed a payment plan with you. If you still owe us money after 28 days, we'll collect it from your new smart meter in daily instalments. Before we take the first one, we'll write to tell you, and say how much we'll be collecting.

If you have a non-smart prepayment meter we’ll send you a statement once a year.

4.2 Extra terms and conditions for smart meters

Smart meters aren't suitable for some properties.

4.2.1 Topping up at a shop - keep your voucher code safe

If you top up at a Post Office or shop, you'll get a voucher code on your receipt. You'll need to give us this code so we can top up your smart meter. You can do this online or by using our automated telephone service. If you lose the code before giving it to us, we won't be able to top up your meter or give you another code. It would be as if you'd lost cash, so keep it safe.

4.2.2 When we can't send messages to your meter

If we lose our connection to your smart meter we might not be able to top it up. If that happens, call us on $SmartPAYGNumber. We may be able to email or text you a code to top it up yourself.

Sometimes we might not be able to give you a code because our systems are down. We'll do everything reasonable to get our systems working again quickly.

4.2.3 Warnings if you're running out of credit

We can send text or email alerts to tell you when credit on your meter is low. Make sure we've got your current email or mobile details if you want these alerts. You can opt in or out of them whenever you like.

Sometimes the amount your meter says you owe is wrong. This might happen because the gas you get has more or less energy than we expected. If that happens we'll adjust your payments on your meter. You'll see details of these changes on your statement.

For more information about prepayment meters you can go to eonenergy.com/prepaymentquestions or call 0345 303 3040.

For more information about paying in advance through a smart meter you can go to eonenergy.com/payg-help or call us on 0345 366 5996.

4.3 Paying by fixed monthly Direct Debit

If you want to pay by fixed monthly Direct Debit, we’ll agree a monthly amount with you and confirm it in writing. We’ll also agree a date to take payments. We can change the amount if prices change or if you use more or less energy than we expected.

If we need to change what you pay we do that twice a year – on the anniversary of your contract or six months before or after. We’ll tell you ten working days before we change the amount or the date when we take your payment.

If your bank doesn’t transfer the money on the date we’ve agreed, we’ll try again. If your bank still won’t pay us, or if you tell us you don’t want to pay by fixed monthly Direct Debit any longer, we’ll change the way you pay. We'll give you nine days’ notice, then we’ll start sending you bills instead of statements. You’ll have to pay these within 14 days. You may have to pay more for your standing charge. Your confirmation letter will tell you about this if it applies to you.

If the Direct Debit payment due date falls at a weekend or on a bank holiday we'll take your payment on the next working day. We won’t take payment early unless we’ve told you ten days in advance.

We usually send you a statement every three months. If it’s only every six months you can ask for quarterly statements. For that, call us on 0345 052 0000.

4.4 Other ways of paying

If you pay in any other way, for example by cheque, you’ll get bills at least once a quarter. Payment is due within 14 days of us sending the bill, unless we agree a different plan with you.

You must pay the amount on your bill unless you have a genuine reason to think it’s wrong. In that case, you need to get in touch with us straightaway.

4.5 Changing how you pay

You can ask us to change the way you pay at any time. If we agree, we’ll confirm the changes to your contract and tell you when they start. Your standing charge may change. Your confirmation letter will tell you about this if it applies to you.

If you want to change from paying in advance to another way of paying, you’ll need to let us check your credit rating. For more about credit checking, see section 2.2.

4.6 What we pay off first

We’ll show Green Deal charges separately on your electricity bill or statement. Whenever you pay us, we’ll split the money in proportion to what you owe for your Green Deal charges and any other charges you owe us.

For all other charges, we’ll use what you pay us to pay off your energy charges, then your non-energy charges. We’ll pay off the oldest charges first. If you’ve got more than one account with us, we’ll decide which account to make the payment to, unless we’ve agreed a payment plan for a specific account.

4.7 Credits on your account

If there’s a credit on your account, give us an up-to-date meter reading, and we’ll decide if you’re due a refund. If you’re not due a refund, we’ll tell you why.

4.8 If you’re having trouble paying

Call us on 0345 052 0000. We might be able to agree a payment plan with you or arrange to fit a prepayment meter. We can also give you advice on how to cut your bills. If you don’t call us, we’ll charge you what it costs us to get back the money you owe us.

4.9 If you don’t pay us as we’ve agreed

If you don’t pay us in the way and at the time we’ve agreed, we can:

- change how often we send you bills
- charge you what it costs us to get back the money you owe us
- ask you for a security deposit
- ask for payment out of any benefits you’re getting
- move you to our standard variable tariff (E.ON EnergyPlan)
- ask you to pay for your energy in advance (see section 4.1)
- disconnect your energy. To find out more about this, go to section 9.

We tell credit reference agencies about how you manage your account. If you don’t pay us as we agreed, it can affect your credit rating and make it harder for you to borrow money.

5 Moving out

If you’re not responsible for the property anymore, you need to tell us, otherwise we’ll keep charging you until someone else takes over responsibility for the energy.

When you move, give us a final meter reading and your new address so we can send you a final bill or any credit we owe you. If you’ve got a smart meter, we can take a reading ourselves. We can also clear your data from the meter and your Smart Energy Display. Make sure you leave the Smart Energy Display behind.

We’ll send you your final bill within six weeks of you moving out (or of us finding out you’ve moved). You’ll need to pay it within 14 days of us sending it. We’ll use your final reading. If you haven’t given us one, we’ll use the new occupant’s reading or, if we don’t have that, our own estimated reading (see section 3.3).

If you have a credit on any E.ON account when you move, we may use it to pay off a debt on any other account you have with us. This might be for a different fuel or property. We’ll pay you anything that’s left so make sure we have your new address.

If you move out of a property with Green Deal charges due, you’ll have to pay those charges up to the date you move out, on top of anything else you owe.

6 Switching supplier

If you switch supplier, we’ll do everything reasonable to make the switch happen within 21 days of the new supplier telling us.

If you have a smart meter, it might not work with your new supplier. Talk to us or your new supplier about this.

We’ll do everything reasonable to get you a final bill or statement within six weeks of you switching.

We can stop you switching if you owe us money. If you pay in advance you can switch as long as you owe £500 or less per fuel. Both you and your new supplier would have to agree to move the debt over.

If you’ve been paying in advance through a smart meter we’ll change your meter to credit mode (that means paying in arrears, not in advance). We’ll clear the settings on your meter and Smart Energy Display at about midnight on the day your switch happens.

Your new supplier will start collecting any Green Deal charges you owe on your new property.

If you have a credit on any E.ON account when you have switched, we may use it to pay off a debt on any other account you have with us (for example for a different fuel or property). Any remaining credit will be paid to you.

7. About the energy we supply to you

7.1 Standards of service

Energy is delivered to your meter by your local network operator. You can call them on 105. You’ll find details about them on your bill or statement.

Things can happen that can’t be controlled by them or by us. For instance, your electricity or gas might be of lower quality than usual.

You can find information about what you should expect and any compensation rules at eonenergy.com/guaranteedstandards or call 0345 052 0000 if you’d like us to send you a copy.

7.2 Electricity national terms of connection

We are acting on behalf of your electricity network operator to make an agreement with you. The agreement is that you and your electricity network operator both accept the National Terms of Connection (NTC) and agree to keep to its conditions. This will happen from the time that you enter into this contract and it affects your legal rights. The NTC is a legal agreement. It sets out rights and duties in relation to the connection at which your network operator delivers electricity to, or accepts electricity from, your property.

If you want to know who your network operator is, or want a copy of the NTC or have any questions about it, please write to: Energy Networks Association, 1st Floor, 4More London Riverside, London, SE1 2AU, phone 0207 706 5100 or see connectionterms.co.uk.

7.3 Emergencies

If anyone living in your property has a serious medical condition or a disability, let us know. We’ll tell your network operator, so they can try to make sure you can still use essential equipment if there is a loss of supply.

In a gas emergency, we or your network operator might ask you to turn down gas appliances or stop using gas altogether. You’ll need to follow any instructions we give you.

Sometimes your gas might be turned off because not enough is available in the network. This is called a gas deficit emergency. It’s rare, but if it happens you might qualify for compensation. It would be worked out in line with a document called the Uniform Network Code. We’ll add the payment to your account as soon as the people who run the gas transmission grid tell us we should.

7.4 Meter faults and problems

If you think your meter is faulty, call us on 0345 052 0000 so we can test it. You'll pay for the test, but if the meter does turn out to be faulty, we’ll refund you. Until we’ve fixed the fault, we’ll estimate how much energy you’ve used.

7.5 Getting access to your meter

You must let us, anyone we authorise or your network operators to have access to your meter at any time. This will be in normal working hours unless it’s an emergency or we’ve agreed a time with you. We’ll also take as much care as we can while we’re in your property.

We need to inspect your meter regularly to check it’s safe and working properly. If you don’t let us have access to your meter, we can charge you our costs. That could include the cost of a warrant.

8 Complaints

9 Other responsibilities

9.1 Our responsibilities

We’re not liable for:

- any harm to you, which we couldn’t have expected when we agreed your contract
- any damage you suffer that’s outside our control, whatever caused it

If the network operator causes you loss or damage, we’ll only be responsible for what we’re entitled to get back from them on your behalf.

The maximum we or the network operator can pay in any one year (January to December) for any incident, or related series of incidents is £1,000,000. That limit doesn’t apply if someone has died or been injured, or if the law doesn’t limit liability.

9.2 Your responsibilities

You’re responsible for all the energy you or anyone else uses at the property, and for paying bills in line with this contract and for taking care of the meter.

You must take care of the meters at the property, including making sure they’re protected from the weather. You’re responsible for making sure there’s a meter box or cover for the meter, or replacing them.

You must let us know straightaway if you think your meter is damaged or if you think it’s been tampered with. If the damage is your fault or caused by your negligence, we’ll charge you for repairing or replacing the meter. We can prosecute anyone responsible for damaging or tampering with metering equipment.

It’s illegal and dangerous to interfere with our equipment, or the network operator’s, for example to steal energy, or try to.

If you have a smart meter, you mustn’t let anything stop it communicating with us.

10. Personal data

10.1 Processing your data

Initial unit rate(s)

Your unit rate(s) when you first agree to switch to this tariff.

Ofgem average consumption

Also known as Typical Domestic Consumption Values, which can be found by visiting the Ofgem website (www.ofgem.gov.uk/gas/retail-market/monitoring-data-and-statistics/typical-domestic-consumption-values). The latest energy industry standard values for annual domestic gas and electricity used by a typical consumer, as published by Ofgem. We use the values for a medium user.

Price review date

Days 91, 182 and 273 after you agree to switch to the tariff.

Region

Your local region, one of the 14 electricity network operator regions in Great Britain.

This tariff is available as Dual Fuel or electricity-only. It is not available as gas-only. It is not available for complex electricity meters which include a ‘heating only’ element.

You must pay by fixed monthly Direct Debit. if your Direct Debit fails or you cancel it we may switch you to our standard variable tariff, E.ON EnergyPlan, as well as applying the conditions in section 4.3.

You must manage your account online and accept paperless billing. You agree to receive all contractual information electronically. This includes contracts, mutual variations, renewal notices, annual summaries and price review notifications.

On this tariff your unit rates will be reviewed at each price review date, at which time they may go down or up, but will never be higher than your initial unit rate(s). There are no discounts payable on this tariff (see section 3.4).

This tariff may not be right for you if you use significantly less gas or electricity than the Ofgem average consumption.

We recommend you provide meter readings close to each price review date. If we don’t have a meter reading we’ll use an estimated read (see section 3.3).

In the event that the Energylinx Index is not available for a period of time, we'll keep you on your current prices until it becomes available again. If it won’t be available any more we will keep you on your current prices until the end date.

About your prices

Calculating your prices

Your standing charge

Your annual standing charge will not change until the end date. It is charged on a daily basis.

Your unit rates

We’ll calculate your initial unit rates when you first agree to switch to this tariff using the calculation shown at the end of this section.

Revising your prices at each price review date

At each price review date we will recalculate your unit rates as described at the end of this section and apply the new unit rates five days after that date.

- if the new unit rates are lower than your current unit rates they will become your new unit rates.
- if the new unit rates are the same as your current unit rates your unit rates will remain the same.
- if the new unit rates are higher than your current unit rates but lower than your initial unit rates they will become your new unit rates.
- if the new unit rates are higher than your current unit rates and higher or the same as your initial unit rates, your unit rates will become the same as your initial unit rates.

We may also change your prices if:

- you stop paying by fixed monthly Direct Debit, or a Direct Debit payment fails (see 4.3)
- you owe us money and we’ve told you we need to fit a prepayment meter (see 4.1)
- a law or regulation means we need to make a change (like VAT changes)
- the Government or our regulator (Ofgem) tells us to change our prices

You can arrange to switch to another of our tariffs or to another supplier at any time without giving notice. You cannot switch to another version of Cap and Track 1 Year until the end date unless you have received your renewal notice. Check your confirmation letter for details of any exit fee on this tariff.

Your unit rates will be calculated as follows:

- we’ll take the relevant version of the Energylinx Index as published that day
- then we’ll take away the Cap and Track reduction
- we’ll split this for gas, electricity and/or E7 as appropriate
- then take away your annual standing charge for each fuel as applicable

This gives you an annual energy use cost for each fuel.

We’ll then calculate your unit rate(s) per kWh per fuel by dividing the annual usage cost for each fuel by the relevant Ofgem average consumption at the time you switched to the tariff.

What happens at the end date

You’re eligible for E.ON EnergyPlan Assist if you've received or are due to receive a Warm Home Discount in the current or previous Warm Home Discount scheme year. Prices on E.ON EnergyPlan Assist can change at any time, but will never be more than the cap set by Ofgem for a vulnerable safeguard tariff
- If you aren’t eligible for E.ON EnergyPlan Assist, E.ON Energy Plan or a standard fixed term tariff with no exit fee.

We’ll send a confirmation letter about six weeks before your end date with all the details about the tariff we’ll switch you to.
