Eon promises not to hike energy billsEnergy prices fixed for 2012
14 May 2012
Eon announced today that it will not increase energy prices for residential customers in 2012.
Responding to this news, Which? executive director Richard Lloyd said: 'People tell us that rising energy bills are their biggest financial worry so anything that gives people more certainty can only be a good thing when household budgets are stretched.
'We have already seen one supplier warn that price increases could be on the way, so now is a good time for customers to look at fixed term deals which offer a bit a more security.'

Cheapest Eon energy tariff
Eon's current cheapest tariff is Track and Save 13, which costs the average household £1,162 a year if they pay by monthly direct debit.
This isn't the cheapest deal on the market. Just last week The Big Switch secured savings of around £123 per household when Co-operative Energy won the reverse auction for 30,000 customers.
Its tariff costs just £1,048 per year for the average household paying by direct debit, and £1,144 per year if they pay by cash or cheque.
