I’ve just moved to a property with an E10 meter and have been searching around for some info on the tariffs when I stumbled upon this site. This is just what I needed. Thanks so much for posting your findings.24th March 2015 at 3:07 pm #1681Mark-W
Well done, much appreciated.
As you are doing it for “love” then no-one should criticise you, as you cannot devote as much time as someone that is being paid to do what you are doing.24th March 2015 at 4:54 pm #1682Mark_E10Keymaster
Thanks Mark, yes it’s a voluntary activity so updates may be sporadic!
Cheers, Mark.29th March 2015 at 11:18 am #1683Derek
Well done on all the hard work you’ve put in here. I have been trying to help my
daughter renew/change her E10 supplier and its a pain in the butt trying to get info from suppliers.

Thanks DC, glad to help!
I’ve updated the main website so there’s lots more info at https://economy10.com – have a look at ‘E10 Info’ (Overview, List of Suppliers) and ‘Prices’ (General Info, and May 2017 Survey)17th May 2015 at 9:17 pm #1685AnneR
Thank goodness I stumbled across you! Just divorced and about to rent a property for the first time ever (I’m 51) and horrified to discover a prepay meter AND economy 10. I have no idea how either work so your site has been a godsend. At least I’ll now have some idea what they actually are! Will be back frequently to ensure I’m doing the right thing. Wish me luck. ^_^20th May 2015 at 3:43 pm #1686Mark_E10Keymaster
Good luck! 🙂27th July 2015 at 9:12 pm #1687Penny
I have recently moved into a new apartment block and we all have new E10 meters installed by EON for all- electric underfloor heating. Bills are huge at the moment as we try to get used to this form of heating/electricity supply! The website is extremely helpful14th August 2015 at 4:24 pm #1688Sally
I’m eagerly awaiting the new prices as i’m just about to go on to economy 10 (I have just moved into a property with an air source heat pump and E7 is not working for me) I have to stay with my current company until March next year because I’ve applied for some sort of payment which people on low incomes can get and I have to wait until I get that in March before changing, after March I will be shopping around – thanks for a great blog, as there is little information about E10 online20th September 2015 at 12:26 am #1689Francesca
Thank you so much for your wonderful website and the time you have spent on it5th November 2015 at 12:36 pm #1690Denise
Thanks for your help, I’m on economy 10 and Finding price comparisons is a nightmare!!

Excellent work Mark! I’ve been looking for alternative E10 suppliers for ages and just found your site via Google. I live in a large development of 140+ flats — all on E10 (all-electric) Thanks to your info I am already arranging to change over to OVO from EON and I suspect that many other owners and tenants here will wish to do the same!2nd February 2016 at 9:54 am #1692AndyTParticipant
Thank you so much for this exemplary piece of work, especially as it is done on a voluntary basis.
I provide energy advice to others and hope you don’t mind me blowing your trumpet by passing your information on to others and adding you to my FAQ list.

Thanks for your kind words, and I’d be delighted if you point people in the direction of the site. I’m due to do my annual summary of pricing so will keep you posted.

Great resource, many thanks.
The problem I’m facing is trying to understand whether the meters I’ve got (I run a few properties where I pay the energy bills) are compatible with E10, and therefore whether I can just switch to iSupplyEnergy, or whether I have to first switch to someone who will fit a new meter.
So far, Co-Operative Energy have told me they don’t do E10 any more, and Eon (one of my existing suppliers) have said that the existing meter isn’t compatible, but that they can’t give me an E10 quote until an E10 meter is installed, which will cost £65. They genuinely don’t seem to think that this is a bit back to front…
So, my quest continues, but in the meantime, I take my hat off to you for actually getting rates from any of them!

Thanks for a great resource; I’ve yet to find a supplier that advertises their Economy 10 prices!
We’re currently with SSE Swalec (Standard Economy 10) and paying 14.09p (standing), 9.59p (off-peak) and 17.79p (peak). Looking forward to getting a better deal!30th October 2016 at 11:55 am #1696PeterWParticipant
We are with Green Energy. Hi standing charge (39.5p per day for 3 meter rates) but 6.31p per unit evening and stored heat, and 15.21p peak rate. Apparently the Tarriff is called “still”

Many thanks for the information you have provided on your sites, using it I swapped to EDF from iON, with a small saving, I live in a McCarthy and Stone retirement complex, and moved in on iON, however there seems to be a new company in the running now to add to your list its called “Avro Energy”, this is useful for two reasons, they offer no Standing Charge option, and just charge a flat rate for both On and Off peak so no need to change the meter, I have monitored it against EDF and so far its about equal, but will become cheaper if I switch my heating on during peak periods, which may happen as it gets colder, one or two use this in our complex, as they use heating on all day, and off at night, the rates look very competitive, and easy to understand.13th December 2016 at 4:18 pm #1698GeoffParticipant
Many thanks for your the information and the hard work you have obviously put into this. Have a great Christmas and a healthy and happy new year13th December 2016 at 6:57 pm #1699Mark_E10Keymaster
Thanks Geoff, and all the best to you for 2017.13th December 2016 at 7:55 pm #1700YvonneParticipant
Thank you for the updated information Mark, I have shared this to my facebook page and requested people to share it to spread the word. It’s not well publicised at all is it?14th December 2016 at 2:20 pm #1701Joanna
Thank you for all your work in compiling this, Mark.
Jo.15th December 2016 at 12:55 pm #1702PaulParticipant
Thank you again for your hard work on E10. I am in South West England and am on E10. I pay 19.56pp kwh for peak +5% vat. Seems to be most expensive in the country! 6.36 pp kwh for off peak. I guess I had better change company?
Happy Christmas15th December 2016 at 1:00 pm #1703Mark_E10Keymaster
Glad you found it helpful Paul!
6.36p+VAT is actually a great off-peak rate, but the peak rate is the problem. If you can get at least 80% of your electricity usage into the off-peak time then you might find it’s still one of the cheapest options. Any less than that and you’ll probably be better off with a tariff that has a less punitive peak rate, but it’s worth crunching the numbers!15th December 2016 at 3:24 pm #1704PaulParticipant
I will go and crunch the numbers! Thank you. Paul
