It does not mean that 100% of EON’s energy is produced from renewables. Some competitors can offer 100% wind or other green energy sources.

Not all regions of the UK pay the same amounts for their energy. Business Energy tariffs in different regions can cost much more.
This is because energy is produced in different parts of the UK, or in other countries. As a result, some regions are physically closer to their sources of energy. This makes their energy cheaper. Conversely, some regions are further away from their energy source, meaning the suppliers charge more for their energy.
The maximum prices of energy suppliers in the UK are restricted by the price cap. Ofgem, the energy regulator, sets a price-cap for energy prices. In 2021, this maximum price increased. As a result, most energy suppliers raised their prices to match the increased maximum.
