How to save money with Octopus Energy in 2024.

They say you can’t have your cake and eat it but with Octopus Energy you really can.

If you choose Octopus Agile, as an example, when energy is abundant you could get paid to use your oven. Cakes taste much better when the energy is free!

Octopus Tracker, another smart tariff, has saved me a small fortune over winter and has allowed my mum who is in her 70s to have the heating on more often. It follows wholesale energy prices and has been well below the Energy Price Cap for the last year.

The Ofgem ban on new customer offers doesn’t stop Octopus Energy from being streets ahead with their smart tariffs. Octopus are on a mission to help both their customers and the planet.

Everyone can switch and claim your £50 new customer credit by using my referral link. The £50 cashback will be credited to your Octopus account after your switch is complete and you have made your first payment.

Intelligent Octopus Flux Tariff.

Intelligent Octopus Flux. Take the hassle out of exporting excess energy from your home battery with the Intelligent Octopus Flux tariff. Intelligent Flux is a next-generation tariff that uses Octopus’  Kraken software to optimise your GivEnergy

When the wind is blowing and the sun is shining how do we get all that green energy to our homes? Like every other form of energy, it has to pass through the National Grid which transfers it around the country. The National Grid makes sure our demand for energy is met in our day-today-day lives but at what cost to the planet? If more power is needed at peak times the grid can turn brown rather than green!

💚🌍☀️🥳🏭💡Octopus Energy is leading the way with its innovative tariffs. When there’s an excess of green electrons they want to make it easy for customers to make the most of cheaper green energy. Their platform Kraken makes the smart grid possible. It’s so unique other energy suppliers are now paying Octopus to sign up and use it, EDF is the latest!! 🏆🐙 We can all do our bit by shifting some of our energy use. When you use energy off-peak it helps balance the grid making it cleaner, greener, and more affordable to use, so it’s a win, win. 💚

Own an electric car? Octopus Energy has 2 dedicated EV tariffs that make charging your electric vehicle off-peak better for both your pocket and the planet. There is also a new Air Source Heat Pump Tariff plus if you have solar panels they’ll buy your excess energy. You can’t beat driving on sunshine but with Octopus Outgoing you can share it with others too. ☀️🚙 🌍

The Cosy Octopus tariff is a super smart, super green tariff available to Octopus Energy customers who own a heat pump. It provides 6 hours of off-peak electricity and is designed to help heat pump owners keep their homes cosy while spending less.



The Octopus Energy Agile tariff allows you to use energy when consumption is low bringing down prices to a minimum, sometimes even free. Shift your energy use outside the 4-7 pm peak to save money and use cleaner, greener energy when there is less demand on the grid. Plus "plunge" pricing when wholesale prices go negative could even pay you to use energy. There are so many ways you can save money and put less pressure on the National Grid at peak times. When energy prices are at their cheapest and the wind is blowing Agile customers preset their washing machines and dishwashers. They heat water, charge Electric Vehicles and even store energy via batteries. They use and store as much energy as they can. It makes sense to use energy when there's an excess in the supply but it's outside our normal habits. Change is needed so it does make sense! This is the Octopus Energy tariff for you if you can get creative with your energy use to help reduce the peaks in supply that cause power plants to come online. 💚

Do you love green tech? Since Switching to Octopus Energy we’ve been inspired by Octopus' enthusiasm for decarbonising the grid and customers homes. Since switching to Octopus we swapped our car for an EV and have installed Octopus solar panels and battery storage. Octopus pay it forward and now run an Octopus heat pump and solar referral scheme. You can use our referral code 95460 for £100 off a solar or heat pump installation. They loaned us a FLIR thermal imaging cameras for free the results of which forced our new home builder to install more insulation in our loft! The free FLIR camera scheme gives customers the opportunity to find out where heat is escaping around their home. Octopus makes energy use fun and easy to understand. For a real shot at a sustainable world, more green energy alone, won’t be enough. We need innovate and Octopus has that in abundance. The Octopus Saving Sessions have helped us contribute to decarbonising the National Grid whilst also reducing our winter energy bill considerably. We were credited more than we were debited on our January 2024 bill thanks to Octopoints earned during Saving Sessions!
