Put the freeze on energy bills to beat worries about price rises

Now warm weather has arrived, EDF Energy has launched a new tariff that lets you freeze energy bills for the next three winters. Even better, it allows you to leave at any time without being stung by exit fees. Of course it's a little more expensive than current best buys. And, at an average cost of £1,350 a year, it's a fair amount more than a 15-month, fixed-price deal from the same firm at £1,210 a year. But if you're worried about future price increases, locking in now could pay in the future, especially as you can get out of the deal easily. The biggest problem? It has a silly name, Blue+Price Freeeeze November 2016. More info at www.edfenergy.com/blue
