At F Smith & Son, we’re proud to bring the personal touch to your move. That includes getting to know your needs before we help you move. We find that while all of our clients have slightly different priorities, everyone is looking for ways to save money on the cost of moving to a new home. But some of the ways you can save money when you move may not be as obvious as others.
For instance, did you know that you could (and almost certainly will) be paying over the odds for your energy when you move into a new home? New movers are automatically placed on a “deemed contract” with the previous occupant’s supplier, which could prove very expensive.
Switching to a new energy supplier as close to your moving day as possible can give you months or even years of sustained savings. And when you choose a 100% renewable supplier like E.On Next, you can save money while helping to save the planet.
What is E.On Next?
E.On is an energy supplier that needs no introduction for most. It is one of the biggest energy suppliers in the UK, second only to British Gas. But as the energy experts at Switch-Plan will tell you, the energy giant just released a glossy new brand with some impressive new tariffs. E.On Next may well be one to watch if you’re both eco-conscious and budget-conscious.
E.On Next is the result of a 2019 merger between two titans, E.On and N Power. Starting in 2020 and throughout 2021, E.On has begun moving NPower customers to its shiny and sustainable new brand E.On Next.
Why is it important to choose a renewable energy supplier?
You want to save money on energy in your new home. But you don’t want your savings to come at the expense of the planet. Burning fossil fuels to generate energy is a major contributor to climate change. Even natural gas, which made up a substantial portion of N Power’s <a href=”https://www.eonnext.com/about/fuel-mix/”>energy fuel mix</a> before the merger, contributes to our national carbon footprint even though it burns more cleanly than coal or oil.
E.On Next’s energy comes from completely renewable sources like wind, solar and biomass.
What is E.On Next’s best tariff?
That depends on what you’re looking for in an energy tariff for your new home. Let’s take a look at some of the plans on offer so you can decide which would be the best one for you.
