EDF Energy has announced a new extension to one of its key fixed rate price plans.
The energy supplier will now offer customers a further three months protection on its Blue + Price promise tariff - extending the original September 2014 tariff, to December 2014.
The deal offers EDF customers the option to fix their energy prices for the next 16 months, with no exit fees if they decide to withdraw from the tariff early. The tariff is estimated to save customers using Direct Debit as much as £143 a year compared to those paying cash or cheque.
Based on the UK's average duel fuel bill, the EDF Blue + Price Promise costs an average of around £1,210 for a dual fuel customer, the extra three months protection the energy supplier will now provide working out at £1 more than the previous cost.
EDF's longest running fixed price energy tariff, Blue+Price Freeeeze November 2016, which offers customers a fixed price for 39 months, will also remain on sale.
EDF Energy managing director of energy sourcing and customer supply, Martin Lawrence, said: "Our Blue+Price Promise December 2014 tariff guarantees customers that their energy prices will be fixed at a competitive rate for the next 16 months and also gives them the flexibility to leave for free at any point if they find a cheaper deal.
"For those looking to fix their prices for a longer period, our Blue+Price Freeeeze November 2016 tariff is the longest fix available on the market and offers frozen prices for three winters.
"Both tariffs leave consumers well and truly in control. They form part of our commitment to rebuild trust by offering fair prices in an open and transparent way."
EDF Energy is also participating in the government's Green Deal, offering its customers the opportunity to take out a loan or, in some instances receive cashback, on items such as a new energy efficient boiler or loft and wall insulation to improve their homes overall energy efficiency and cut down on energy bills.
