What’s happening with Sainsbury’s Energy and E.ON Next?

We’ve partnered up with E.ON Next. This means going forward, E.ON Next will be powering your Sainsbury’s Energy supply, taking over from npower.

Your Sainsbury’s Energy account isn’t going anywhere and there’s nothing for you to worry about. There’ll be no interruption to your supply, and you’ll still receive all your Nectar points. We’re doing all the heavy lifting in the background to make this change as seamless as possible, and we'll keep you informed every step of the way.

Rest assured that E.ON Next is part of the E.ON group, so you're safe in the knowledge that they have the backing of an established energy supplier.

Will I pay the same amount every month?

We give you fixed payments with our Fix & Reward tariff, meaning you'll pay the same amount every month. But it's worth bearing in mind that if you start using more energy, the amount you pay us will increase, even though the price per unit stays the same.

Can I cancel before the end of my fixed term?

Yes, you can cancel your fixed price energy plan before the term ends.

Do you have fixed term contracts?

Yes, we offer a fixed rate tariffs.

How do you match my electricity consumption to ensure my electricity is 100% renewable?

We will match your annual consumption for the Fuel Disclosure Period (calculated between 1st April and 31st March) to purchase REGO certificates to offset electricity usage in the fuel disclosure period. Beyond this, there are currently no additional environmental benefits to this tariff.

Is the electricity flowing through my home from renewable sources?

The ‘normal’ energy supplied to a customer’s home comes from the National Grid and is made up of electricity and gas (if you have both) produced from a variety of sources. We'll match 100% of the electricity you use on this tariff with the purchase of Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGOs). Beyond this, there are currently no additional environmental benefits to this tariff.

Why aren’t you matching my gas units?

The renewable electricity market is fairly advanced, so a large amount of renewable energy certificates for electricity (REGOs) are available. This means we can match 100% of electricity consumption of our customers on the tariff. Renewable gas is a much newer concept, so the number of renewable energy certificates for gas (RGGOs) is limited.

What are REGOs?

REGOs are Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin Certificates – they essentially provide proof that electricity has been generated from a renewable source. OFGEM issue one REGO per megawatt hour (MwH) of electricity generated from eligible sources to renewable electricity generators.

What is your approach to sustainability?

Sainsbury’s Energy is a partnership between Sainsbury’s and E.ON Next. Both companies are committed to pushing sustainability through their business activities.

From the little things such as making our tariffs paperless, through to wider initiatives run by our fellow group companies, we continue to look for ways to balance sustainable practices with cost effective energy.
