EDF Energy raises its energy prices in line with price cap

EDF's standard variable tariff sees a 9% increase in cost.

By Matt Maynard · 18th February 2021

EDF has announced a 9% rise on its standard variable tariff, meaning customers on an SVT will now pay £1,138 annually from 1st April. 

The price cap news saw the cap for an SVT rise £96 from 1,042 to £1,138, which will take effect from 1st April, affecting all EDF customers on a default tariff. 

If you're an EDF Energy customer on a fixed tariff, you will not be subject to the price changes until you allow your tariff to expire and you are automatically put on EDF's default SVT. You can avoid this by comparing energy tariffs and switching to a better deal.
