HomeEnergy Tracker is a fixed length energy tariff that tracks the average Standard variable Direct Debit prices of seven suppliers (E.ON, SSE, Scottish Power, npower, EDF, First Utility and Ovo).

It will follow price movements of seven suppliers’ Standard variable prices by tracking the average Standard variable Direct Debit prices of these suppliers and reviewing the price on a three monthly basis. 

  • Calculating your price - Your price is based on the average Standard variable standing charge and unit rates (inclusive of VAT) of seven suppliers. These prices are based on Direct Debit rates and do not include any paperless billing/online discounts that the suppliers may offer, but do include dual fuel discounts. The unit rates and standing charges will depend on which region you are in. 
  • Initial price - The initial prices for the tariff before the first review will be calculated from the average unit rate and standing charge of the seven suppliers as of 8pm on the 16th April 2018. These rates will not include any paperless/online discounts that suppliers offer, but will include any dual fuel discounts. These prices will be taken from the Energylinx Energy Index. For more information click here.
  •  Price reviews - Your prices will be reviewed on a three monthly basis using the Energylinx Energy Index taking the prices at 8pm on the following dates – 16th August 2018, 16th November 2018, 16th February 2019, with the last review on the 16th May 2019. You will be contacted by email within two weeks of a price review with any changes to your standing charge and unit rates. It will also include the actual date that your prices are changing. The price change will occur between seven to fourteen days after the email has been sent.

With this tariff you will also need to set up an online account with us to manage everything totally online. We will ask you for an email address and get you to set up a password.
