    If you mean is there a charge if you change plan or switch suppliers, then you need to check with Eon for this.

    If I was you, if there was no penalty for changing now, then I would consider looking what fixed or capped deals are available now (or within the next couple of months). Over the last couple of years prices have gone up over winter and dropped back a bit afterwards, so the best fixed deals are available BEFORE the suppliers decide to put their prices up for the winter.

    Where is your £30 from - is that a comparison website deal? I think some cashback websites (eg quidco) might be giving away more than that for a transfer to scottish power directly
    Indecision is the key to flexibility :)

    Hi pennyshahin

    Just thought I'd confirm there are no cancellation charges on our Price Protection version 14 tariff. You can switch at any time without penalty even before the end date of 1 October 2009. :)

    Our Energy Online Extra Saver tariff gives additional discount for managing your account online but the unit prices are not fixed.

    Hope this helps.

    Malc :)

    There is a 'penalty' for leaving E-on - they will charge you extra on your final bill. You will not receive any discounts - about 13.5% (varies with region). Not so bad now if you've already had your winter bills and will only have summer consumption left.

    How low a low user are you? E-on have very high Tier 1 rates so that is punishing for low users. And did you check the single-fuel tabs on the comparison sites as well?

    As mentioned by Annie you will receive at least £62 (sometimes £100) from Scottish Power if you switch via Quidco or Topcashback.
