EDF Energy Contact Number

0843 557 3393

EDF Energy is an energy company in the UK which generates and sells gas and electricity to 5.7 million consumers and businesses. EDF stands for Électricité de France, the French company which formed EDF Energy in 2002. It was a merger of several Southern energy groups and power stations. EDF Energy uses nuclear plants and wind farms to generate energy, but it is also one of the largest generators of coal-fuelled energy. This use of fossil fuels is not environmentally friendly and has attracted some criticism. They began moving towards a greener and eco-friendly image in 2008. They have an orange mascot called Zingy which has featured in advertising campaigns since 2012.

Customer Services

Call 0843 557 3393 to connect to EDF Energy customer services. You can have all of your general queries answered any day of the week except Sunday, when their offices close. In the event of an emergency situation, there are 24/7 helplines you should call instead. Call 0800 111 999 for gas-related emergencies or 105 for emergencies relating to electricity or power cuts. Whenever you need general support, call customer services. You should contact them if you are moving and want to switch your tariff to a new address. You might need to arrange the installation of a new meter. You can’t call for help if you have an Easy Online tariff, but you can use the live chat on the website.

Billing

You can set up a Budget Direct Debit to spread the cost of your estimated yearly energy use across equal monthly payments. You only have to submit two meter readings a year, and after these, your payments may go up or down according to your energy usage. The Whole Amount plan allows you to pay a monthly Direct Debit based on twelve meter readings each year, usually once a month. You can also arrange to pay your bill by cash or cheque monthly or quarterly. Call 0843 557 5126 for help with setting up a Direct Debit or switching to a different tariff. You can call for help understanding a breakdown of your bill, or claim a refund if you have paid for more energy than you used.

Pre-Payment

The Pay As You Go tariff is also called Pre-Payment, since you pay upfront before you actually use the energy. This means that you only use what you have paid for. If you go over or need to top up, you can do so at any time. You can charge your card or key at PayPoint shops or Post Offices and use it to transfer the credit to your meter. If you run out of credit, you have £6 of emergency credit before the gas and electricity turn off. You will have to pay this back next time you top up if you use it. Call 0843 557 4514 for help regarding payments on this type of plan. If you want to switch to a standard billing plan, then you must make sure you don’t owe any debts on your current plan.

Smart Meters

At the moment, EDF Energy is introducing Smart Meters across the country one area at a time. All customers with EDF Energy should have a free Smart Meter by 2020. To find out if Smart Meters are available in your area yet and to book your free installation, call 0843 557 3706. If the option is not available there yet, you can still register your interest so that EDF Energy will contact you as soon as they can fit a Smart Meter for you. The installer will phone ahead of the appointment, and the installation process will take an hour per meter. If you need support with using your meter and submitting readings, then call, especially if you are switching to EDF or leaving for a new supplier.
