A review of Octopus Energy by a customer

Which? Highest ranking recommended supplier 2020. Let's think of our future and the future of our planet. Stay safe everyone!


Are you considering a switch to Octopus Energy?

I can honestly say we are delighted with our switch to Octopus Energy. Our home uses green energy and we have reduced our monthly bills. Octopus Energy was hailed as ‘Tech Company of the Year’ in the National Technology Awards 2020. By disrupting the market companies like Octopus are thankfully driving change. Clean energy and the tech revolution is well underway. It is the first time that an energy retailer has been named as ‘Tech Company of the Year’ at the awards, which recognise pioneers in technology and celebrate tech excellence across the UK. You now have the choice to go green, save money and the planet with a little help from the techies at Octopus.


92% of Trustpilot Octopus Energy Reviews give Octopus 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.
