Octopus Energy Agile Tariff Review.

The Green Grid.

Octopus Energy Agile tariff enables customers to switch to renewable energy with a simple, creative, and unique smart tariff that helps make the future look brighter. The Octopus Energy Agile tariff is groundbreaking in the energy market. It enables customers to reduce their energy costs by using electricity when it’s at its greenest.

Octopus Agile isn’t complicated. Think of the Octopus Agile tariff the same way you would think of the tariff on carrier bags. You get charged more for using energy when there’s more demand on the national grid and power stations have to come online. (that’s what we need to avoid 🌍) Between 4 pm and 7 pm, you’ll always get charged more as this is the peak time!  This is when National Grid is usually brown and not green! The price rise, like the carrier bag tariff, is an incentive to reduce your energy use during this time. On the upside when there is less demand on the national grid or there is an excess of green energy the Octopus Agile price will plummet and even go negative. You will then get paid to use energy!! Octopus Agile rewards you for shifting your energy use. 💚👏🌍⏰

The plastic bag analogy is a simplistic way of looking at the Octopus Agile tariff. There are obviously more complex reasons why energy prices fluctuate but for those who are happy to shift their energy use to hopefully save money AND help balance the national grid, I think it’s a great way of looking at it.

UPDATE: I currently wouldn’t suggest opting for the Octopus Agile tariff as wholesale prices have gone through the roof. If you have solar and can export to the national grid, however, Octopus Agile is currently very attractive!!!!!!! Octopus Agile outgoing has some staggering export rates!!! See the table towards the bottom of this page for today’s prices. Well done Octopus Energy!!! 

What are Octopus Energy Smart Tariffs?

Octopus Energy offers a range of different smart tariffs, such as Octopus Agile to help us make the national grid cleaner and greener.  The innovative tariffs help customers really take control of their energy consumption and prices. They are quite revolutionary but you will need a smart meter installed. All Octopus Energy household tariffs can be taken out as dual fuel or electricity-only plans, but gas-only tariffs are not available.

Quote from Octopus Energy – ” We started with a clean slate. Energy is a notoriously traditional industry, but we’ve built a modern, efficient system that lets us pass savings to you.

Just imagine everyone else is still driving a 1982 Vauxhall Corsa, and we’ve built a self-driving digital supercar.”

I would change this to a digital GREEN supercar. ⚡️🤓


Octopus Agile Tariff

Shift your energy use outside the 4-7 pm peak to save money.

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 there an excess of green energy and wholesale prices go negative could even pay you to use energy!

This tariff also lets you take advantage of all your smart plugs and devices like Amazon Alexa so you can choose to use home appliances such as your washing machine and dishwasher when energy is cheapest. More importantly, you can use energy when there is less demand on the grid or there is an excess of energy making it far greener.

Octopus Energy Agile Review – How do you know how much you will pay per kWh?

Octopus Energy Agile prices.

Agile customers are able to check energy prices for the following day online and through the Octopus app after 4:30 pm every day. This allows customers to see when the cheapest windows will be the next day, giving them control over their consumption and a better idea of their daily spending. As a simple rule of thumb, because there is always a large peak between 4 pm and 7 pm, all Agile customers need to do is adjust their consumption away from that time to benefit overall from the tariff. While extreme price spikes are rare and short-lived, typically lasting 30 minutes to an hour, they do happen.

The Octopus Agile tariff includes Price Cap Protect, so customers never pay more than 35p per kWh. At the end of the month, customers receive a statement. The front page looks like a usual bill, but for those who like more detail, there is also a full line-by-line breakdown of customers’ daily consumption by each half-hour, summarised for each day with a graph and their average price per kWh. You do not have to be on the Octopus Agile tariff to take advantage of Octopus Agile Outgoing!

Octopus Agile smart meter displayIt’s important to remember that your standard in-house smart meter display will show your energy consumption but will not show the correct unit price for your electricity when you are on Octopus Agile. There are lots of apps that can help. (listed below) but I really like this alternative smarter meter in-house display!

The Glow smart meter display links your Octopus Api (explained at the bottom of this page) with your smart meter and displays not only your energy consumption but your total daily spend based on Agile half-hourly pricing. How great is that? There’s even a funky graph to show the price fluctuations.


For customers who regularly have excess solar energy to feedback to the grid. Just look at these fantastic Octopus Agile Outgoing prices! (This is the price you sell your excess energy for)

Compare Octopus Fixed Tariff to Octopus Agile (This is the price you pay for energy)

This is based on a quote for an Octopus Fixed tariff in my geographical area and the national average price per kWh on the Agile tariff.  It is for illustration purposes only. The average price includes all times. So it includes peak times which will be quite high bringing the average price per kWh up. You can obviously avoid these times and bring the price down!

Fixed rate quote 19/09/2021 
24 MONTHS FIXEDOCTOPUS AGILE ⏰AVERAGE PRICE PER KWH 20/09/2021
24.45p per kWh31.4p per kWh
24.86p standing charge per day21p standing charge per day

Below you will find Octopus Agile prices for the last 7 days.  I have highlighted the cheapest 4 hour period just in case anyone is considering Agile for charging an EV or battery storage etc. The average price per kWh per day is also included.

The most important point to remember when reviewing these prices is that YOU choose when you use electricity. The average price below includes peak times. It gives you an idea of how much you’d pay without making any real adjustments to your energy use. If you choose to shift some or all of your energy use to outside peak times the average price would obviously go down.

That’s the point of the Octopus Agile tariff. You are in control of when you decide to use energy.🌍  The wholesale energy prices fluctuate but on a traditional tariff, you don’t get the choice to choose when to take advantage of price drops. You only get offered the average price which gives the supplier a profit.

Apps and smart devices can help with creative energy use to make the grid greener.

I would suggest signing up for one of the Agile apps listed at the bottom of this page. (I have no involvement with any of them) They are designed by customers. The apps are a quick and easy way to compare prices and find the cheapest times to use energy.

The eco plug works with the Octopus Agile tariff it turns appliances on when Agile prices drop/energy is greener. ✅

The National Grid has recently launched ‘The green light signal”. It’s a smart bulb that interacts with the National Grid. When the electricity in your local area starts to be supplied mainly from clean or green energy sources, such as wind or solar, the magic happens and the bulb will glow green. Find out more HERE. You could also try using the Green Signal on IFTTT. There’s an applet If CO2 Level is low. I am going to try this with my Hue Lightbulb. ✅

If you have an eye on the cost you can always switch tariffs eg Octopus Agile in the spring, summer, and Autumn, and then Octopus Fixed tariff or Go in the winter when there is very little solar activity. It is really easy to switch between tariffs. It just depends on how much time you want to spend being a little more creative with your energy use.


As a new customer, how do you switch to Octopus Energy Agile Tariff?

As a new customer, you’ll simply have to switch to Octopus Energy and select an interim tariff before making your switch to Octopus Agile.

  1. Switch to Octopus Energy. (This usually takes around 17 days)
  2. Octopus must be satisfied that they are receiving half-hourly readings from your smart meter. (This usually happens with 14 days but could take longer)
  3. Your dashboard will show you can switch to Octopus Agile.

If you haven’t got a smart meter it’s a case of switching, requesting a smart meter, and waiting for an installation date to become available in your area. You’ll need a Secure SMETS1 (secure is the brand name) or a SMETS2 smart meter to switch to any of the Octopus smart tariffs.

Tip: If you have been with another supplier and you’re not sure if your SMETS1 smart meter will work Octopus look for the word “Secure”. It may be written on the front of your smart meter.  Secure is a tradename.  Secure also supplied meters to Utilita, Shell, OVO, E.ON, and Bristol Energy.  Any other brand of SMETS1 smart meter will not retain its smart functionality if you switch to Octopus.

How can I tell if I have a SMETS2 smart meter already?

Look out for ‘GUID’ or a Device ID which looks like this: AA-BB-CC-DD-EE-FF-00-GG-ZZ on the front of the meter.  If you can see a number like this it is a good indication you have a SMETS2 meter.  

Why is the Octopus Agile tariff so exciting? 

Octopus Energy makes smart tariffs possible. They have created Kraken, a platform that enables them to deliver the world’s first half-hourly time-of-use tariff.

“Kraken is Octopus Energy’s proprietary technology, a globally scalable platform designed to drive the smart grid and greatly improve the efficiency and customer service of energy suppliers. The end-to-end platform is based on advanced data and machine learning capabilities and automates much of the energy supply chain, empowering customers to access power when it is cheaper and greener. Kraken is now contracted to serve 17 million energy accounts worldwide, targeting 100 million accounts by 2027.” – Read more HERE.

This is a great interview with Zoisa Walton from Octopus Energy talking about the Octopus Agile tariff and the future of energy.  I have skipped forward not because the start wasn’t interesting but it relates to business use for Agile. Still a great watch from the start if you want to skip back and watch the whole thing.  The future looks brighter and Zoisa simply beams with her passion for renewable energy.  It’s a delight to watch!

 


Should I switch to Octopus Agile?

The benefits of switching to Octopus Agile.

  • Help reduce your overall energy bill.
  • Reduce the cost of using home appliances simply by shifting your time of use.
  • Decrease your environmental impact.
  • Help rebalance the national grid.
  • Make your home energy work smarter for you and the planet 🌍

Is there an Octopus Agile Gas Tariff?

No. Octopus Agile is simply for your electricity but you can pick a standard Octopus gas Tariff to sit alongside your Agile electricity tariff. For example Super Green Gas and Octopus Agile Electricity.


Is there a minimum time you have to stay on Octopus Energy Agile tariff?

You can opt-out of the Octopus Agile tariff at any time. The switch to another tariff is usually made within a day (even within a few hours sometimes) BUT you can’t switch back to Agile for 30 days. This just makes it fair all around. Octopus has no exit fees on any of its tariffs.

Until now, the only rewarding engagement in energy was switching from one tease and squeeze tariff to another. One person only benefited at the expense of another. but with a dynamic smart system, people seeking better value also make it better for everyone else. Amazing. –  Greg Jackson, CEO

The more data you have the more you can save.

It’s important to keep an eye on the Agile prices which are released each day. They can be found on your Octopus Energy dashboard. Octopus has updated its website recently and they now provide considerably more data thanks to the Ada Lovelace intern project. 

There is a list of Agile apps at the bottom of this page.💕


Octopus Energy Agile customers in the news.

Gill was featured in recently Sunday Times. She makes big savings charging her EV using Octopus Agile and an Ohme EV charger. In the article, Gill reported she drove 12,000 miles for £120 in her Kia e-Niro. 💃 She also makes use of price drops to save money using a variety of household appliances.

Octopus Energy customers can get a big discount on the Ohme Car charger which works well with the Octopus smart tariffs. Instead of £400 customers pay currently £199. If you a Tesla owner you just need the Ohme App.


Octopus Agile Tariff versus Octopus Go Tariff.

The other smart tariff Octopus Energy offers is Octopus Go.  Both Octopus Go and Octopus Agile reward customers for shifting their energy use.  Octopus Agile prices change every 30 minutes in line with wholesale prices and Octopus Go has an off-peak discounted period of 4 hours each day. (You can read more about Octopus Go HERE.)

There has been a lot of discussion on Twitter in the last few months about Agile pricing. Lots of staunch fans of Octopus Agile who own an EV are switching to Octopus GO. This has mainly been due to less frequent drops in Agile pricing. In 2020 Octopus Agile customers frequently saw prices plummet to less than 5p per kWh but due to the lack of wind and energy demands so far in 2021, the price fluctuations haven’t been as dramatic.

The average price for electricity per kWh on Octopus Agile over the last 365 days is still however below the price you would currently pay on an Octopus fixed tariff.  It just relies on avoiding peak times and getting creative with your energy!

In my opinion, battery storage is a good answer.  You could then store energy when prices drop and there is a surplus on the national grid.  Your energy would be cheaper and greener and available to use on-demand when prices rise during peak times.  The issue is at the moment the initial cost of battery storage isn’t cheap.  Hopeful demand will drive down the cost. If you own an EV I would suggest you read my full review on Octopus Agile v Go HERE.

If you are not comfortable with the fluctuation of the Octopus Energy Agile tariff variations maybe it isn’t the tariff for you BUT the tariff spikes do focus your mind on shifting your energy usage which in turn makes your energy consumption even greener. This is a great article by Ofgem on half-hourly pricing in the bid to reach Net-Zero.

Tip for EV drivers. 

If you are an EV driver it is well worth considering Octopus Agile tariff. Even though Octopus does have a specific tariff for EV owners, Octopus Go. If you want to play with negative pricing and price plunges to bring your average unit price down even further it can save you even more money on your energy bill. As an example, you may use your oven during peak times BUT if you can charge your car during energy price plunges it will bring your overall average unit cost down per kWh. Remember you charge your car for much longer than you use your oven! It is the average price per kWh that you need to consider when looking at your overall energy consumption.


Will I get paid for exporting my solar energy with Octopus Agile? 

Yes, Octopus Energy Agile Outgoing tariff currently pays customers to export electricity to the grid.  You don’t have to be on Octopus Agile import to take advantage of Agile export. You just can’t be on Octopus Go.

  • Octopus Outgoing matches your half-hourly prices with your day-ahead wholesale rates.
  • Octopus Go Outgoing pays 3p per kWh.

octopus energy agile app

Octopus Energy API

Application programming keys (API) are normally used to assist in tracking. They aren’t usually openly available but Octopus Energy allows their customers full access. In doing so lots of very clever customers and developers have come up with ways to integrate API into software and devices. These, in turn, helps customers to use energy smarter.

Most of the Octopus apps / smart devices require you to have, at the very minimum, your Octopus Energy API key and your account numbers. You can access your API even if you haven’t yet switched to the Octopus Energy Agile tariff and you’re still on an interim tariff with Octopus.

How do you access your unique Octopus Energy API key?

  1. Log into your Octopus Energy Account.
  2. Click on Account Settings.
  3. Scroll down to Developer settings.
  4. Click on API access.

I would suggest you cut and paste the information needed into the app/device of your choice. The example below shows the information needed for the Octopus Watch App. All this information is on your API access page on your Octopus Energy dashboard.

OCTOPUS ENERGY APP


Devices and Apps that work with Octopus API

I have listed some useful apps and devices which integrate with your Octopus Energy API.

Smart Meter Display and CAD

ECO Smart Home Plugs.

Homely Smart Thermostat.

Power Vault Battery Storage.

Home Assistance.

Open Energy Monitor.

The Octopus Energy Apps

I would say this is one of the most useful apps to consider if you are switching to the Octopus Energy Agile tariff. This app allows you to download up to 3 months of historical data.  You can use it to set Agile pricing alerts and interact with Siri. It’s a good app but the fun really starts in the subscription version.

octopus energy agile data One of the features I particularly like is on the rates page. You can see the current rate per kWh hour and the rates right through to 11 pm the next day. The table is easy on the eye and using traffic light colours. to indicate, low, medium, and high rates. You can also use a slider to find the cheapest time to use an appliance. As an example, push the slider across to 2 hours, and the app will display the cheapest time to run an appliance for this length of time. Which makes it great for working out when to turn the washing machine on.

(Find this app at google play)

(find this app in the app store here) (find this app on the Amazon store)

Octopus Watch with Subscription.

This is really if you want to help shift your usage to make energy greener.  You can set alerts so you know when the lowest carbon period is.  It really depends on how much you want to play around with your energy usage and shift. The predictive reports are great too. If you want to plan and work out which day would be best to charge your car or do your weekly wash then the predictive option helps a lot. Of course, these energy prices are just predicted. However, they have shown to be 90% accurate, which is good enough for me.  Here is their website.


Octopus Compare App

The app allows you to compare Octopus Energy tariffs to find out which tariff is best for you based on your own energy consumption. (find this in the app store here)

“What a great app. Many Octopus Energy customers want to compare energy tariffs, most commonly Agile against Go. This nails it, easy to set up and use. Clear outputs and summaries.”


If This Then That (IFTTT) 

Connect your Agile Octopus to hundreds of other services.  Save money on your energy bill by making things work when energy prices are low.

Simply sign up to IFTTT and link your Octopus Energy agile account to your IFTTT dashboard. You only have to do this once and your login details are saved on the app. Now do the same for other smart items in your house eg Hue light bulbs and smart plugs. Once you have logged into all your smart devices on the app you can start to have a play around.

Eg. If Octopus Energy Agile prices drop below X turn on X.

If you are looking for some smart plugs you can either simply plug a smart plug into your wall socked and add the device or you can change your wall socket to a smart plug. I really like the British-made BG Smart plug.

I use IFTTT to automate my smart devices at home. You can link your Octopus Account to lots of devices.  I LOVE THIS APP. I am a geek and link it to my hue lights and ring security system too. There are so many options. I have lights flashing when I come home and all sorts. The kids love it and there is so much you can do with it. Plus it’s FREE!

This app has easy-to-read graphs. It shows current and past prices along with historical data on your energy consumption.  It also shows up-and-coming Agile rates. This app also shows your gas usage and cost.  (find this in the app store here


This is a simple no-nonsense table format. There are no charts. It displays Agile pricing for 7 days and historical data for up to 30 days. I like the simplicity of it. (find this in the app store here)


Ohme – Smart EV charging

This app isn’t stand-alone. It works with a piece of hardware. You preset the app to charge your electric vehicle when the price drops below a set amount. You set the maximum you want to pay for electricity per kHw and the Ohme device will turn the charging off and on.  So you simply plug your car in and walk away.  Ohme will only start charging your car when the rate is below the minimum price you preset in the app. Charging will stop and start as prices rise and fall every half hour. It will carry on doing this until your charge is complete. This removes the need to monitor Agile prices so closely as Ohme does all the work for you.

Octopus Energy EV customers can get a big discount on the Ohme Car charger which works well with the Octopus smart tariffs. Instead of £400 customers pay currently £199.


Ohme App for Tesla Owners

UPDATE: Ohme launched a new app on 20/1/2020. Tesla owners no longer need the Ohme cable. Tesla drivers just need the updated app!! All you need is a standard charging cable and the app. This is possible because the Tesla API, which lets your phone communicate with your car, can stop and start charging.  The app simply automates the charging when energy is the cheapest/greenest. How cool is that!


Myenergi – EV Charger

The Zappi charger is very popular with EV owners. I would also suggest looking at these guys.


Octopus Energy vehicle-to-grid project. (South East)

If you live within the pink area in the South East you could apply to take part in the powerloop project.  Vehicle-to-grid is a new way of thinking about home energy management with the ability to have a constant energy cycle: allowing energy to flow from the house to the car battery, and from the car battery to the grid.

By using Powerloop you are helping to unlock the potential of stored renewable energy in your car battery and feed it back to the grid during times of peak demand, between 4-7 pm. This is groundbreaking in how we relate to energy at home and make use of excess renewable energy.

I don’t live in this area but I love this idea.  I watched an interview and there’s no need to worry about needing to recharge the battery if you suddenly have to use the car for a journey. As I understand it you can set a cap on the amount of energy that is taken from the vehicle for use on the grid.

More information can be found here.


Octopus Energy Agile Review.

How does the future look for Octopus Agile customers?

Looking back at my childhood I have memories of my father always switching lights off or removing plugs from the wall. He wasn’t an environmentalist it was all based on cost and didn’t we know it! Fast forward thirty years and I am much the same as my father. Although the conversation I am having with my children is a little different.  Kids will be kids and if I don’t keep a close eye on them the house ends up looking like a Christmas tree at times. My reasons for demanding that lights are switched off or the items are not left on standby is also mixed in with the need to use appliances at times that will help our planet become greener.

switch to green octopus energy

My twins have really embraced the need to use larger items like the dishwasher or the washing machine during off-peak times. (Once I have persuaded them to clean their room) They can imagine the carbon-based energy sources coming online to meet demand and they don’t really like it.  They still have to be reminded to turn lights off or removed phones from chargers but the move to shifting some of their energy use has been far easier.  Looking forward to the future smart tariffs like Octopus Energy Agile tariff is going to be the way forward. I think my children like myself and their grandfather will, of course, worry about home energy costs but I think their generation will have a different approach to consuming and storing energy thanks to pioneers like Octopus Energy who are leading the way in smart tariffs like Agile.

WHAT IS BIOGAS?

When switching energy suppliers we wanted 100% renewable energy because we wanted to reduce our environmental impact. We had two green energy companies in mind both offering renewables. I could understand how my electricity could be renewable. The energy provider simply generates green energy and plugs it into the national grid. It replaces every kWh of energy I take from
