EDF Energy announces participation in Which?'s Big Switch

Between 1 July 2019 and 31 December 2019, at least 10% of people who switched energy supplier for both gas & electricity with Uswitch saved £479 or more.

EDF Energy has become the latest big energy supplier to announce that it will participate in Which?'s Big Switch scheme.

The first 'reverse auction' - in which energy suppliers will bid to provide the 280,000 customers signed up to the scheme with their lowest price tariff - is due to take place on May 9.

Co-Operative Energy has also signed-up for the scheme after Which? altered its definition of the term "market leading" bid. The term now adds that an energy supplier can bid for the customers signed-up to the scheme with their current best deals.

EDF has already confirmed that it will be bidding at the Big Switch auction with its existing Blue +Price Promise tariff, according to This Is Money. The company has forecast that, based on average consumption, the fixed price plan would cost £1,054.20 per year.

Meanwhile, Scottish and Southern and British Gas have announced that they will not be partaking in the scheme.
