E.ON Next offers 25 percent off energy bills from October 1

From October 1 - when the price cap decreases - the Winter Affordability Support Scheme will run until March 31, 2024. The energy provider says tens of thousands of people could benefit from its discount, which could save a typical household £480 over six months. From the time of signing up to next year, eligible customers with no energy debt will be offered 25 percent off a standard variable tariff. Eligible customers with energy debt will be offered 50 percent off over the same time period, said Paul Ewing, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Energy Department. The new policy comes as households are set to see their energy unit prices fall by An average of seven from Sunday as a result of the latest Ofgem cap.

The price cap will drop to £1,923 for a dual-fuel household paying by direct debit. This price is to be set until December 31. Despite the price drop, reports show that overall energy bills will increase this winter compared to last year, as the government has not announced another £400 energy bills grant. Who is eligible for E.on Next Winter Support Scheme? The carrier said it will provide more than £80 million in support over the winter months to those deemed to be its most vulnerable customers. If you're eligible to receive a discount on standard variable tariff rates, you can either 25 percent or 50 percent, depending on your circumstances.

Credit cardholders with prior debt can get 50 percent off their bill. E.ON Next also will waive any current debt at the end of the programme if people keep up with the payments during the six months. A 25 percent discount will apply to customers with a low income who are not in debt. Britons must be an existing customer with the supplier and meet the following criteria to be eligible for these discounts.

The unit prices will then be fixed at the reduced rate until the end of March 2024, irrespective of the next change to the price cap. It should be pointed out that if Britons fail to keep up with payments, they will be moved back onto its standard variable tariff rate - the energy price cap.
