Eon is launching Fixed Price 5, a new gas and electricity tariff that fixes energy unit prices for two winters.
Which? energy spokesperson Jenny Driscoll says ‘This tariff will fix your energy costs until July 2013 and is unusual in not having any cancellation penalties.
‘Customers can also earn Tesco Clubcard points. However at the moment it’s one of the most expensive ones around, so it’s definitely worth checking other tariffs for cheaper deals before you sign up.’

Fixed energy tariffs
Fixed energy tariffs guarantee that you’ll get a set unit price for gas or electricity for a certain period of time, and this latest tariff from Eon is available to dual fuel and single electricity customers.
Fixed tariffs protect you from against future price rises but also mean that you won’t benefit from any price reductions your energy company announces.
This type of tariff can also be up to 20% more expensive than non-fixed versions.
Eon: Which? members’ views
In our customer satisfaction survey Eon got a customer score of 49%.
This was the second highest satisfaction score of all the ‘big six’ energy suppliers – though lower than smaller companies such as Ebico.
Eon scores four stars in most categories and a reasonable three stars in the rest. You can see the full results of the survey at Which? Switch.
