What to do if I have received the bill higher than expected?
If we’ve under-estimated your bills in the past, your current bill will be higher. This is because we’re now charging you for energy you used in previous months that was not previously charged for.
Examples of things that may cause a higher than expected bill:
- The time of year, as you may use more during the winter months
- If there’s been a price change since your last bill
- If you’ve changed anything in your home, for example new appliances
- If there’s been an increase in the number of people in your home
- If you’ve been doing home improvements the appliances used may increase your usage
- If you have more than one reading on your meter they could be mixed up
How do I know if I have a metric or an imperial gas meter?
You’ll be able to tell which type of meter you have by checking the number of digits that make up your meter reading.
Imperial meters will have four digit readings, not counting any numbers in red or after the decimal point and are measured in cubic feet or ‘hcf’.
Metric meters will have five or six digit readings, again, not including any numbers in red or after the decimal point and are measured in cubic meters or ‘m3’.
What is Economy 7?
This is an electricity tariff that has different unit prices based on the time of day.
Econoy 7 offers seven hours of cheap rate units during the night period. Daytime units are charged at a higher rate than E.ON EnergyPlan, our standard product.
- In order to benefit from being on an E7 tariff you would need to use more than 34%* of your electricity during your cheap rate hours.
- If you use less than 34%, you’d probably be better off on our single rate tariff. You can get a quote online now – use our quote tool on our Home page, but don’t tick the E7 box.
- The times for the cheap rate period can vary from household to household as they depend on the type of meter and teleswitch you have fitted, and the area where you live.
- If you already have an E7 meter and are unsure of your E7 times please call us on 0345 052 0000, Mon-Fri 8am to 8pm or Sat 8am to 6pm.
- If you do not have an E7 meter and you would like to change to this tariff you will need a new meter fitting at your own cost. If you’re interested in switching to Economy 7 and you’re an existing E.ON customer, please contact us on 0345 301 5793, Mon-Fri 8am to 8pm or Sat 8am to 4pm.
- If you’re not with E.ON then please contact your current supplier.
*Based on our E.ON EnergyPlan prices and Ofgem’s average consumption for E7 customers of 5,000kWh
