COMPARE OCTOPUS ENERGY TARIFF
Octopus Energy tariffs help customers to switch to renewable energy with simple and creative Octopus tariffs that help make the future look brighter. We need forward thinkers like Octopus Energy. As well as ‘traditional’ Octopus tariffs, such as the Flexible Tariff (Energy Price Guarantee), which is basically now 2 years fixed, Octopus offers customers Octopus smart tariffs that are groundbreaking in the energy market. For our energy market to change we need companies like Octopus Energy to fight for change. They champion their customers and look for ways to save them money while also helping the planet.👏
Octopus Energy smart tariffs and Economy 7 tariffs can work out cheaper than the Energy Price Guarantee. They just require a little hustling with your energy use.
There are lots of reasons why you may want to switch energy suppliers. However, trying to find the cheapest energy deal is getting a lot more complicated! The Octopus Flexible tariff, as an example, is a variable tariff but from the 1st of October, 2022 acts more like a discounted 2-year fixed deal. The flexible tariff will now receive a discount under the Energy Price Guarantee which limits the most you will pay per kWh.
Is the Octopus flexible tariff the cheapest Octopus tariff? In lots of circumstances, it is BUT if you can “load shift” some of your energy use to off-peak times you can bring the average price you pay per kWh down below the energy price guarantee. I will explain how this can be done.
The Energy Price Guarantee.
On the 8th of September, the UK government stepped in to offer the Energy Price Guarantee. The energy price cap was set to rise by 132% over the winter of 2022 but the government replaced it with the Energy Price Guarantee. (EPG) This simply means the government will subsidise energy bills by paying your energy supplier the difference between the Energy Price Cap and the Energy Price Guarantee. (We will pay it back over the next decade in taxes)
The Energy Price Guarantee will provide discounts on the following tariffs;
- Octopus flexible tariff.
- Octopus fixed tariffs.
- Octopus tracker tariffs.
The Energy Price Guarantee is capped at 34p per kWh for electricity and 14.5p per kWh for gas.
The EPG provides a discount of up to 17p per kWh for electricity and 4.2p per kWh for gas. The discount only applies if your rate per kWh is above the EPG capped rate of 34p per kWh for electricity and 10.3p.
Octopus will either discount your energy bill so the amount you pay per kWh is no more than the EPG or move you to the Octopus flexible tariff if you are going to be paying above this per kWh on a traditional Octopus fixed tariff.
The only slight variation is IF you choose to vary the Octopus flexible tariff to include a cheaper night-time rate, this is called Economy 7, then you will be paying more during the day than the EPG but your night-time rate will be much lower.
Here’s a breakdown of prices on the Octopus Flexible tariff by region, if you pay by direct debit. It includes the Energy Price Guarantee discount. You can click here to download the prices.
If you pay by another method you can find the detail here.
Is it worth switching to Octopus Energy?
It’s not the best time to switch energy suppliers but if you could save money on an Octopus smart tariff or an Octopus Economy 7 tariff now might be the to do it!
Remember auto-switching sites only compare the cheapest deals on offer not the stability of the company. They also can’t predict how willing you are to change your behaviour to save money on your energy bill! If you are able to think a little outside the box you can still save money with Octopus Energy! They have some very clever smart tariffs available and they have reduced the price per kWh off-peak on their Economy 7 tariff.
Here is how I load-shift some of my energy use. My peak rate is 40p per kWh and my off-peak is 7.5p per kWh. The average price I pay per kWh is around 18p!
This is an EV tariff but from the 1st of October Octopus has made the Economy 7 rates much cheaper! Yes, the day rate goes up but if you are prepared to try load shifting it might be worth a go! It could work out better for both the planet and your pocket!
@sarah_go_green If you have an off-peak smart tariff with Octopus Energy you can charge your EV cheaply BUT you can also use energy in the rest of the home at the same rate of 7.5p a kWh. So delay functions and smart timers are great. #EV #EVcharging #moneysavingtips #energytariff #octopus🐙 #savemoneytips #utilitybills #electric #costoflivingcrisis @Octopus Energy ♬ original sound – sarah_go_green
Yes, I think so. At the moment the price guarantee is the cheapest traditional energy deal so it’s hard to compare but Octopus has gone a step further and has added a discount of 4% on their standing charge for customers on the Octopus Flexible tariff. (EPG cap). The Economy 7 standing charge is slightly higer.
As an Octopus Energy customer, I am very impressed with how they have conducted themselves during the energy crisis. Their communication has been excellent and Greg Jackson, Octopus CEO, has been very vocal in asking the government for an energy price freeze. Stressing the need for additional support for customers.
On the 17th of September Octopus announced a £40 million package to help its most vulnerable customers. For those homes who are not so well off or on a pre-payment meter, this will be a great help I am sure!
High standing charges are a pernicious feature of the regulated energy market, especially for many of the worst-off households. Octopus will waive standing charges for upto 100,000 hard-up customers for 1, 3 or 6 months this Winter.https://t.co/CmzRcpBHN5

The good news is Octopus Energy is a fantastic energy company that is continuing to grow and is here to stay. 🎉
Before the start of this energy crisis, I believe around 50,000 new customers a month were making the switch to Octopus Energy. The old “Big 6” energy suppliers have dominated the market for so long that it is quite refreshing to see a fairly new energy company like Octopus hot on its heels. We need energy companies like Octopus to help us find creative ways to make the UK less reliant on importing energy from abroad. Octopus, in my opinion, is streets ahead of any other UK energy firm. They really want to make a difference and put customers and the planet at the forefront of everything they do!
Why is Octopus Energy in such a good position compared to some other suppliers? Octopus Energy explains why in this enlightening post!
Which Octopus Energy tariffs are currently available to new customers?
My personal preference has always been a fixed energy deal and you can get an Octopus 12-month fixed tariff as a new customer on an Octopus smart tariff or a 2-year fixed deal on the Octopus Flexible tariff which is the Energy Price Guarantee rate. You can vary the flexible tariff to include off-peak rates at night, called Economy 7. You will pay more than the EPG for the daytime rate BUT you can hustle by shifting a proportion of your energy to off-peak use, such as washing machines and dishwashers. This could be great for EV drivers who want to save money on home charging or customers who are prepared to switch off at peak times and use more energy at night to save some cash and help the planet!
On the Octopus flexible tariff (EPG), your energy prices won’t rise and fall for the duration of your energy deal but will stay the same for 2 years.
Let me explain. Octopus Energy has the traditional price cap tariff called Flexible Octopus. It did rise and fall but is now a fixed tariff for 2 years as the Energy Price Guarantee will provide a discount that fixes the price per kWh, on average, to 34p per for electricity and 10.3p for gas. This tariff can be varied to include Economy 7 off-peak rates.
On top of this, you can still sign up for a 12-month smart tariff. Some smart tariff requires a smart meter. Smart tariffs are a great option for EV drivers and those with solar panels. They do not receive any discount under the EPG.
Not all smart tariffs require a smart meter but most do. Smart tariffs are designed to change either on a daily or hourly basis. They can also change on daily basis but are usually capped so you know the most you will pay per kWh for 12 months. These time-of-use smart tariffs are similar to the Economy 7 tariffs but with more tech thrown into the equation. Octopus really is at the cutting edge of energy transformation!
All traditional and smart tariffs are available to new customers. Yes, you can switch to Octopus Energy you just have to give them a call.
Quick Money Saving Tip
There’s no getting away from it the simple way to save money this winter is to use less energy. A slow cooker is a really great way of cooking a hot meal using significantly less kWh. A slow cooker uses very little electricity and only costs around £20. There’s no need to get a fancy one. I have had mine for years and it just keeps going! If you need inspiration or recipes just send me a message.
You can still get energy considerably cheaper than the price guarantee if you consider an Octopus smart tariff. 👏 (Based on average use)
If you are a new Octopus customer you will need to go on a traditional interim tariff to make sure your smart meter is sending readings first but this shouldn’t cost you more than the EPG. For Octopus time-of-use tariffs for electricity consider;
- Octopus Flexible Tariff (Economy 7 for electricity)
- Octopus Go tariff, (EV drivers)
- Intelligent Octopus (EV drivers)
- Octopus Agile.
- Octopus Outgoing tariffs (Home solar/wind)
Also, take a look at the Octopus Tracker tariff which is currently beating the EPG for gas prices.
You WILL need a smart tariff for these Octopus time-of-use tariffs.
I use on average 63% of my energy off-peak. (I have 3 kids and an EV). By shifting my energy use I bring my peak rate of 40p per kWh down to around 18p per kWh! This is below the October 2022 Energy Price Guarantee! 💃

Get a quote and switch online.
Octopus removed the option to provide online quotes on the 28th of February. This was due to the volatility in the energy market. Just call Octopus to obtain a quote – 0808 1693274.
You can still check up-to-date tariff information, however, the tariffs do not yet show the rates with the government support discounted. The energy price guarantee comes into effect on the 1st of October so hopefully, they will be updated just before or after this date. If you want to take a look just scroll down through the list of current tariffs. Here is the link.
Don’t click on “Request a quote” just enter your postcode and a list of current tariffs will be displayed below. All the comparison sites are unable to provide any quotes either BUT you can find the current tariffs on the Octopus Energy website.
For smart tariff click on the filter option. It’s a drop-down box. Select domestic and smart. I update this page daily so you will be able to see the current rates.
What are the new tariff rates for Octopus Energy – 1st October 2022?
The new Energy Price Guarantee is simply a 2-year fixed tariff.
Even though all the Octopus fixed rates are still displayed on the Octopus tariff section of their website the Energy Price Guarantee which is basically a 2-year fixed blows these out of the water. If you are on one already don’t panic as the EPG discount will be applied. If this still doesn’t drop the price down enough Octopus will automatically transfer you to the EPG rate which is basically a new 2-year fixed deal starting on 1st October 2022.
Octopus Energy is the first supplier to offer a variation on the energy price guarantee, which I believe is still known as the Octopus Flexible tariff. All customers on the Flexible tariff receive a 4% discount on their standing charge from the 1st of October.
The Energy Price Guarantee from 1st October is on average 10.3p per kWh for gas and 34p per kWh for electricity. It changes slightly depending on where you live in the country.
Here is an example of the price increases from the 1st of October on the Octopus Flexible Tariff.
This customer is on the flexible tariff BUT with the added option of Economy 7.
You can see the standing charge has gone down thanks to a 4% deduction by Octopus. The new economy 7 rates make the daytime rate higher BUT the off-peak rates are significantly cheaper.
If you can load shift just 30% of your energy to off-peak on Economy 7 your average price per kWh would match the Energy Price Guarantee. (There or thereabouts 😀) If you can load shift more you will be beating the energy price guarantee with a cheaper rate per kWh!
The energy prices are quite confusing at the moment. Newspapers like to take about average prices per year but what you need to focus on is the price per kWh as everyone uses different amounts of energy.
The energy price cap up to 30th September for an average home was £1,971. This increased on the 1st of October to £2500 under the Energy Price Guarantee. The average price for a typical home isn’t the most you will pay as everyone’s energy use if different. The average home is based on someone using 2900 kWh electricity and 12000 kWh gas.
If you use more energy the price will go up and if you use less energy the price will go down.⬆️⬇️⚡️ So the figure of £2,500 quoted for a typical home under the EPG doesn’t really mean a lot it just shows someone’s costs on typical use. It’s just a good way of quickly seeing if prices have gone up or down. It’s similar to reading about the average price of homes in your area.
With Octopus if you don’t have a gas supply or you want to get your gas elsewhere you can opt for an all-electric tariff. The price is exactly the same per kWh. ⭐️
Is now the right time to switch to a new Octopus Energy tariff?
Everyone’s circumstances are different so just take your time to make sure you make the right decision for yourself. The main theme for everyone is simply reducing your energy consumption! That’s the only real way to save money regardless of the tariff you choose.
Can I switch Octopus tariffs if I find a better deal?
Yes, you can swap Octopus tariffs with no penalties even on the Octopus 12-month smart tariffs or Economy 7 rate. Octopus will tell you on your bill if a cheaper Octopus tariff becomes available. You email back and they will swap you over. It’s effortless!! I’ve done it a couple of times and it takes the hassle out of looking for a cheaper tariff with Octopus Energy. 🙋♀️💃 👏
I have switched energy tariffs several times with Octopus and it is really easy to do, you simply email [email protected]
How long does it take to switch to a new energy tariff with Octopus Energy?
How does it work? Octopus can supply both electricity and gas. The switch is usually completed within 17 days and Octopus takes care of everything. (You will get £50 credited to your bill after you have paid the first direct debit using my link or quoting my referral details)
There’s no need to contact your current supplier Octopus will do that for you. You simply pick your Octopus Energy tariff, supply your meter readings and cancel your direct debit after your final bill has been settled. There are no exit fees if at any point you decide to switch to another provider.
Compare Octopus Energy 12 months fixed smart tariffs to the Energy Price Guarantee.
The most anyone should pay under the Energy Price Guarantee is on average 34p per kWh for electricity and 10.3p per kWh for gas. Prices vary depending on your geographical location.
The EPG affects the Octopus flexible tariff, Octopus traditional fixed rates and the Octopus tracker tariffs. It does not affect any of the smart tariffs. Octopus Go, Go Faster, Intelligent and Agile tariffs all remain unchanged.
Octopus smart tariffs do not receive any discount under the EPG. However, by load shifting on the EV tariffs you should be well under the EPG average of 34p per kWh for electricity or 10.3p per kWh for gas. I average around 18p per kWh on the Octopus Intelligent tariff. (EV tariffs are Octopus Go, Go Faster and Intelligent Octopus tariffs)
Octopus Agile has a cap of 78p per kWh which is more than double the EPG rate and receives no discount. Most people still on this tariff have the old capped rate of 35p or 55p per kWh.
Are energy prices still going up?
There was a drop in wholesale energy prices at the start of April but since then they have continued to go up at an alarming rate. In June 2022 wholesale energy prices shot up quite dramatically. Over the last few weeks, wholesale gas prices have reduced but these are a day ahead prices. For energy prices to go down overall the year ahead price has to be lower. A supplier buys our energy in advance.
Here are the prices on the Octopus tracker tariff. The tracker tariff follows day-ahead prices rather than year-ahead prices. (You can read more about the Octopus tracker tariff at the bottom of this page)
|Octopus Gas Tracker Tariff is NOW AUGUST V1.||Price per kWh.
MAX PRICE 22P PER KWH.
Here’s a graph showing the wholesale energy prices in the UK. The blue line is gas and green electricity. As you can see in February 2022 when Russia invaded Ukraine wholesale prices increased. Vladimir Putin is restricting gas supplies to Europe, and so wholesale prices worldwide are increasing.
In April wholesale prices started to drop BUT as EU countries started to bid for limited supplies of gas they skyrocketed in June 2022. Countries will need to secure gas for supplies for the winter so I can’t see these prices dropping any time soon. In fact, there is only one way they seem to be heading and that’s up. So energy prices will remain high for domestic energy tariffs.
Will energy prices fall in 2023?
It seems very unlikely. Russia is still restricting gas supplies and so prices remain high as EU countries bid for the limited supply of gas.
From the graph above you can see how much wholesale prices need to come down to be back to pre-crisis levels. Energy prices are currently extremely volatile.
What is the Loyal Octopus Tariff?
The loyal Octopus tariff is now obsolete. It was exclusively available to customers who have already switched to Octopus. There were no exit fees and was cheaper than the standard 12-month fixed tariff.
Anyone on this tariff already will get the Energy Price Guarantee discount applied to their bill BUT Octopus have moved all customers paying over to the EPG to the Flexible tariff as they would have been paying too much.
Is Octopus Energy cheaper than British Gas?
I was a British Gas customer for years and will never go back. British Gas loves to confuse you with their tariffs and lock you in at any opportunity. We need clear transparent prices that don’t lock you in. You stay because you want to with Octopus Energy. That’s the way it should be with all companies! 🐙
Octopus offers clear pricing to allow customers to make informed decisions, that’s what we all need! No hocus pocus!
- British Gas seems to LOVE exit fees.
- The British Gas website is frustrating to navigate.
- I found my British Gas bills confusing to read.
Even before you switch to Britsh Gas getting a quote from British Gas is quite frustrating! They increase their overall tariff price by a few pence each day but the calculations and rates remain the same. How does how happen?!! I check their prices every morning so it’s easy to spot this. 🤷♀️
British Gas is one of the oldest energy companies in the UK and has over 5.3 million domestic electricity customers and 6.4 million domestic gas customers. Whilst Octopus Energy is only 5 years old and already has just over 3 million customers. There’s a reason why they are hot on British Gas’ tail!! Customers love the great service and value they provide!! I also love their work passion towards achieving NetZero.! 🌍👀💗)

Octopus Energy fixed v Variable tariffs. The Flexible Octopus tariff is explained. (simply)
The Octopus flexible tariff is the Octopus default tariff which is known as a standard variable tariff. The Octopus Flexible tariff rises and falls with wholesale energy prices BUT won’t go any higher than the energy price guarantee.
My experience choosing the right Octopus Energy.🤷♀️
Shocked to read my energy bill.👀
Moving forward each month Octopus Energy tells me when I could pay less. Each time I receive my bill via email I also get an update if there is a cheaper Octopus Energy tariff I could be on. They highlight how much I could save on each new Octopus tariff. Even if you opt for a 12-month fixed tariff you can still switch to this cheaper deal. You just email back and they do it for you! I have done this a couple of times! I have never had a company tell me I could pay them less before AND there is no catch. No exit fees!! This is a complete winning formula for me! There is no need to keep checking if there are cheaper Octopus Energy tariffs available. They just tell you!
What are Octopus Energy smart tariffs?
Octopus Energy offers a range of different Octopus smart tariffs. The innovative tariffs help customers really take control of their energy consumption and save money. This is where the tech base of Octopus makes it stand out from the crowd. The Octopus Energy smart tariffs are quite revolutionary but for most, you will need a smart meter installed. The Octopus smart tariffs are also fixed for 12 months. All Octopus Energy tariffs for households can be taken out as dual fuel or electricity-only plans, but gas-only tariffs are not available.
(Smart meter required)
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 wholesale prices go negative could even pay you to use energy! The Octopus Agile tariff is capped at 78p per kWh and receives no Energy Price Guarantee discount.
This tariff also lets you take advantage of all your smart 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.
Is the Octopus Energy Agile tariff right for you?
No one can tell you if the Octopus Agile tariff is right for you. Every home has different energy usage patterns. Some households may find it tricky to shift energy usage away from peak times. You may simply have to prepare meals during these times. However, you may have a variety of appliances that you could use when there is less demand on the national grid to reduce your average price per kWh. The most you will pay is 78p per kWh.
You can see Octopus Agile historical prices in my full Octopus Agile review.
You can read further about the benefit of off-peak energy on the Ofgem website.
Octopus Energy electric vehicle tariff – Octopus Go
Perfect for charging an electric vehicle at night.
(Proof of EV ownership is required along with a smart meter)
Octopus Go is an electricity tariff with a bonkers cheap 7.5p / kWh rate for four hours every night (between 12.30 and 4.30 am). It was designed with EV drivers in mind as charging can be done very cheaply whilst you are asleep. This can help keep fuel costs around 1.5p per mile.
Before opting for the Octopus GO tariff I would suggest you weigh up if you could save even more money by getting creative with the Agile tariff. This takes a little more creativity and organisation in the home but you could save money on your car charing as well as home appliances. You can always switch tariffs eg Agile in the spring, summer, and Autumn, and then 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 thinking about it to save money.
I have recently switched to the Intelligent Octopus tariff as it offers a longer discounted period BUT it’s new and there are specific requirements for switching.
If you own a Tesla OR you have a Wallbox Pulsar Plus charger (or you are thinking about getting a Wallbox Pulsar plus charger) take a look at the brand new Intelligent Octopus tariff. The tariff offers a minimum of 6 hours of off-peak charging at 7.5p per kWh! 🌍💚
Octopus Energy tracker tariff.
If you don’t have a smart meter but would like to try a smart tariff you can still sign up for the Octopus tracker tariff.
On the Octopus tracker, the most you will pay is 22p per kWh for gas and 78p per kWh for electricity. The maximum price increased on 30th August 2022 from 22p per kWh for gas and 78p per kWh for electricity.
The price you pay on the Octopus tracker tariff changes on a daily basis and follows wholesale energy prices.
You will get a discount of up to 17p per kWh for electricity and 10.2p per kWh for gas on the price per kWh if they rise above the EPG cap of 34p per kWh for electricity and 10.3p per kWh for gas. So you won’t pay more than the EPG IF the price per kWh stays below 51p per kWh for electricity and 14.5p per kWh for gas.
It is a bit of a gamble BUT here are some points to remember on the Octopus Tracker Tariff.
- If the rate per kWh drops below the EPG cap you are saving money!
- If the rate per kWh rises above the EPG cap but doesn’t exceed 51p per kWh for electricity or 14.5p per kWh for gas the discount applied to your Octopus bill at the end of the month will reduce the price per kWh back down to the EPG cap.
- If the day rate on any day rises above 51p per kWh for electricity or 14.5p per kWh on this day you will be paying more than the EPG cap.
- The cap on the Octopus tracker tariff is 78p per kWh for electricity and 22p per kWh for gas.
- Remember the price you pay per kWh could change every day.
At the moment if you are prepared to check your day rate every day to make sure the price per kWh doesn’t regularly go over 14.5p per kWh for gas, an example, then you could beat the EPG price! Why? Because for the last month in my region gas prices on the tracker tariff have not exceeded 14.5p per kWh but they have gone below 10.3p per kWh for approximately half of the month!
Customers would get a discount of up to 4.2p per kWh on their gas tracker price above 10.3p. So as long as the daily rate doe not exceed 14.5p per kWh the Octopus tracker tariff would be cheaper than the Octopus Flexible tariff which is covered by the EPG.
The good thing is you can switch back between tariffs without any penalty with Octopus. So you could try the tracer tariff if you note prices are starting to drop but it is a gamble.
The price per kWh on the tracker tariff in South Wales on Monday 3rd October 2022 is 7.73p per kWh.
You can see Octopus tracker prices for the last month in my region for both gas and electricity. They vary a little depending on where you are in the country.

The future of energy.
I see this as the future of energy consumption. By storing electricity we can help reduce the strain on the national grid. Electricity can go into your home from your solar panels, from the grid, or through battery storage. As an example, it can run the other way so energy can come out of the car (think of your EV as a spare battery) into your home or back into the grid. So you can run your car from your house and your house from your car. It goes both ways and so many other ways. That’s quite groundbreaking and already a possibility for some Octopus Energy customers!
