The rise comes less than a week after the regulator Ofgem increased the capon default tariffs to £1,254 a year for a typical household, because of higher wholesale costs.
Comparison sites urged the 1.8 million customers on the company’s default tariff to look for a better deal. The new tariff will be £286 more expensive than the cheapest deal on the market.
E.ON said it was making the increase in line with the decision by Ofgem to raise the cap and predicted other energy suppliers would make similar movements in pricing.
