When can I leave EDF energy without them penalising me? My current tarriff is Easy Online Apr 20 and I would like to move to another supplier as I can make a good saving.

Thanks,

Fortyfoot.

    49 days before end . Usually the supplier sends out a letter .

    Thanks for the info, I did get an email suggesting that I moved to another EDF tarriff, Scotish Power is about £10 a month cheaper for me

    You can apply to switch now. The sooner you switch, the sooner you'll start saving.

    Sign up to the MSE Cheap Energy Club to be alerted if you can save by switching. I suspect you could have started saving quite a while ago, even allowing for exit fees at that time. Remember cashback from applicable switching would fund about 50% of typical exit fees.

    Remember that the CEC does not list all suppliers.  Better to use the Which or Energlinx ones.

    Where can I sign up to the alert service as provided by the CEC with either of those providers?
    Do either of those offer cashback?

    The CEC alert is only available from CEC, but don't rely on it.  They don't tell you about Neon Reef, and they won't show any cheaper Avro tariffs if you say you're already with Avro, so presumably they won't alert you either.  Remember that Energylinx doesn't show the whole of the market by default, but the Which? version does.
    Cashback is seldom available from the cheapest providers.
