Revealed: the best fixed price energy deals

Following npower’s launch of its ‘Fixed Family’ this week, ScottishPower has stepped into the fray with its new plan, Fixed Price Energy February 2016, offering consumers the longest fixed price protection in the current market.

The new ScottishPower plan costs £1,301 a year on average and offers price protection until the end of February 2016, according to

npower’s Price Fix December 2015, now the second longest in the market, costs £1,305 a year – £4 more, but with two months’ less price fix protection. Both tariffs come with early exit fees attached.

EDF Energy’s popular Blue + Price Promise February 2015 plan still remains one of the few to not have an early exit penalty attached.

The EDF Energy tariff costs £1,192 a year, which is £109 cheaper than the new ScottishPower tariff, but ScottishPower’s price protection lasts for a year longer.

Consumers can now choose from a selection of attractive fixed price tariffs, ranging in length from a year to almost three years. We reveal the best tariffs on the market:
