Although EDF only supplies approximately one-third the customers of their larger competitor and other Big Six member British Gas, they do have the honour of being the largest producer of electricity in the UK.
EDF Energy is not only a business energy supplier to thousands of businesses and commercial properties, but also they produce electric, 20% of the UK’s volume, and they are quite proud of that distinction!
When looking for the best electricity rates in the UK for business electric, you might want to look at EDF energy when weighing their deals against other suppliers.
Many consumers in the UK don’t stop to think that the supplier they are getting energy from may not actually be a UK company. Whilst EDF is licenced to do business in the UK, the parent company EDF is actually out of our neighbours to the east, France. It is a state-owned enterprise and was formed in 2002 as the result of mergers and acquisitions. Since that time, EDF has reached across borders to offer cost effective and eco-friendly electricity to business and residential consumers.
As one of the leading energy suppliers on a global level, EDF is happy to provide energy products to the UK and has been doing so long before the company evolved to its present form. In fact, EDF Energy began investing in energy solutions for the UK as far back as 1998. Business Electric is happy to list EDF as one of the ethical energy suppliers on our comparison site.
