The ONLY Which? Recommended energy supplier for 2019.


Are you considering switching to Octopus Energy?

I made the switch to Octopus Energy from British Gas in 2018. I made price comparisons looking for the best deals online. A friend recommended Octopus Energy and since I have saved money on my energy supply. The switch to Octopus was quick and easy. It took less than 5 minutes to make the switch and I am delighted. Here I share my Octopus Energy journey. There's lots of information which may help you save both time and money if you're considering a switch to Octopus.


92% of Trustpilot Reviews give Octopus Energy an Excellent rating of 5 stars.

Octopus Energy charge fair prices, their website is very good (options are explained, prices and dates are clear, communication always happens in good time and they respond like the speed of light to facebook messenger) My feeling is that the staff seem to like and value their customers and they offer 100% renewable and carbon offset energy. It’s great getting a little cashback too.

At 67 I have finally gone green thinking of my children's future. I love I no longer have to worry about paying too much for my energy bills. I get rapid replies to any emails. The staff are always friendly and polite. What's not to like?


Switching to green energy is one of the biggest ways you can help tackle climate change. Octopus Energy supplies 100% renewable energy and adds it to the national grid, mixed with energy from other sources, and finally piped out to houses and businesses in the UK. Octopus Energy guarantees that for every kWh of electricity you use, they’ll generate a renewable one to replace it. 1 kWh out of the national grid = 1 renewable kWh in. They also measure how much gas you use, and carbon-offset this through various environmental projects at home and abroad. Switch to Octopus Energy and make a difference today.
