octopus energy competition


Everyone is looking for a deal, especially around Black Friday when the competition is tuff. Competition for everything from your home electronics, Christmas gifts to your weekly shop. I have had conversations with family and friends this year about the ethics of Black Friday. With the global climate emergency is it something we should be encouraged by taking part in the growing trend?   The issue is everything has an impact on our climate. octopus energy should i switchChristmas trees being grown and cut down simply to be disposed of 2 weeks later is madness in its own right. What we try to do as a family is sensible in our purchases and be mindful of our choices. The biggest impact we can make to reduce our carbon footprint is to continue to use green energy and to encourage others to do the same.  We can show people we care about them through spending time together and with acts of kindness.


When you switch to Octopus Energy during Black Friday you’ll be aware of competition from other energy suppliers.  It is important to remember that switching to renewable energy will make a massive difference to your carbon footprint.   Octopus Energy offers several very innovative tariffs which will prove a hit especially if you love tech.    Black Friday and technology gadgets go hand.  You can use Alexa, for example, to wash your laundry when the demand on the national grid is as it lowest if you opt for the Octopus Agile tariff.  Not only will it be far greener but you could also get paid if energy prices go negative!   You could charge your electric car using Octopus Go which gives reduced rates for electric car charging overnight or you could just for a straightforward great 100% green tariff.

When you switch to Octopus Energy you will;

  • Switch to green renewable energy. (The only Which? recommended supplier 2018 and 2019)
  • Reduce your carbon footprint.
  • Save money.
  • Receive £50 credit when on your first bill using my referral link.
  • Be given your Octopus Energy referral link which you can use straight away.
  • Receive great customer service and support.

Octopus Energy won “Most Likely to be recommended supplier”  – USwitch for 2019.

Last year’s Octopus Energy Black Friday competition.

Last year Octopus Energy gave away 4 electric cars in their Black Friday competition.  It was a great way for Octopus Energy to grab a share of the energy market.  By promoting the benefits of electric vehicles and rewarding customers for going green Octopus has reaped the benefits.  Since then Octopus has continued to put customers first by offering great service and rewarding existing customers for spreading the news about green energy with their referral scheme.  Last year’s Black Friday competition cost Octopus the equivalent to 29p per customer – which isn’t too excessive.  Even though I didn’t win a car I think it is a great incentive to help customers spread the word and help the planet get a little greener.   This is why a year later they are now the 7th largest energy company in the UK. This sends a message to the traditional energy firms that they have to up their game in terms of renewable energy and not treat customers as simply bystanders in the energy market.
