What is a Standard Variable Tariff?

Unlike with a fixed rate deal, with a standard variable tariff, the price that you’re paying may vary. Standard variable tariffs are typically the most expensive plans offered by any energy provider and are most commonly used by people whose fixed rate deal has run out, or by people who have recently moved into a property. If you are unaware what kind of tariff you are on, the chances are it’s an SVT, and you should look into switching.


Our plan is to change this and have similar prices for both our fixed tariff and our SVT. Not penalising customers for being on the SVT but rewarding customers for being loyal to Yorkshire Energy.
