I would suggest taking a deep breath before reviewing your energy deal. Sadly energy prices have increased by over 50% in the last six months and tariffs are continuing to climb. 😭 If you are free to choose a new supplier now may be a good time to make the move if you want to lock in your energy tariff for the next 2 years. Remember auto-switching sites only look at the cheapest deals on offer not the stability of the company.
Why is Octopus Energy in such a good position compared to some other suppliers? Octopus Energy explains why in this enlightening post!
- Octopus Energy is one of the best-run companies in the energy sector and now seems to be making a move to take control of Bulb Energy too. (reported on Sky News 25/09/21) 👏💚🐙
- News: Britain’s energy regulator Ofgem has ordered Octopus Energy to supply energy to about 580,000 domestic customers of Avro Energy, which ceased trading as of last week.
What’s the deal with increasing prices?
On Saturday 18th September the Flexible Octopus tariff was removed as wholesale prices are changing so rapidly. Energy prices are skyrocketing at the moment and lots of people are considering if now is the right time to fix their energy price for at least the next two years! There is a limited supply of energy and there seems a perfect storm of issues that is forcing prices up!! You can read more about why energy prices are rising HERE.
In July the Octopus fixed tariff increased from £96.67 to £120.04 and again in September shot up to £132.25! That’s for the same amount of energy!! It has been bouncing up in price over the last month! It’s currently both the gas and electricity prices that are increasing. If you heat your home with gas or electricity (which most of us do) it’s a good idea to look at your energy deal now!!
Global gas supply issues are affecting wholesale energy prices and forcing energy prices up but you can lock in your tariff now for the next two years. Remember you can always swap to another tariff at any time with Octopus. So you can opt-out of the fixed-rate if prices drop again and claim a new cheaper fixed or flexible tariff. It’s so easy to do!
You may also want to consider requesting a smart meter to take advantage of the additional smart tariffs that Octopus Energy has on offer. You can read more about these further down the page. 👀
I opted for the Octopus Super Green tariff when I first switched to Octopus. It’s a fixed tariff and you pay slightly more and get a full carbon offset for your gas supply. It is a fixed price for 24 months. When I switched it was a 12-months only but they have since changed it which I think will be a great option for customers who want the security of knowing their bills won’t go up.

What’s included in the calculations?
Octopus Energy only offers 100% green tariffs, unlike British Gas. 💚
The quotes are based on 2900 kWh of electricity and 12000 kWh of gas which is a medium household. You can adjust the quote for the size of your home.
Is it time to fix the price of your energy with a new tariff?
No one can tell you what’s right for you but if you want to stop your head from spinning and just fix your Octopus tariff now before prices go up any further you can do that very easily BUT please remember to review your tariff in a year’s time or fully read your energy bill in the months ahead. This is important as Octopus will tell you on your monthly bill if there is a cheaper deal available. 💚 👏 Even on a fixed deal they will tell you if there is a cheaper tariff available. This makes life so much simpler! 🐙💃
Important points to remember. 💚
- The fixed-rate tariff is a 2-year fixed tariff BUT you can swap to a new Octopus tariff at any time. There’s no need for you to wait for your 2 years to be up. So if prices drop in the summer of 2022 you can switch to another fixed deal that is cheaper or even move over to the flexible (variable) tariff.
- There are no fees or penalties for doing this. So switching tariffs is hassle-free.
Personally, I feel happier on a fixed deal. The price cap will most likely rise again in April 2022 when then it is reviewed. I would worry about prices going even higher but there is no right answer. It’s personal preference which tariff you want to stick or move to. Everyone is different. I have switched tariffs several times and it is really easy to do, you simply email [email protected]

Clear transparent prices that don’t lock you in. You stay because you want to with Octopus Energy! 🐙
- Octopus Energy is £95.14 a year cheaper than British Gas on its 2 years fixed deal. Plus you get £50 credit when you switch.💚👏🥁🐙
- British Gas has an exit fee of £50 on its fixed tariff which makes switching to a cheaper deal if prices drop prohibitive. 🥺
- The British Gas website is frustrating to navigate.
- I find the whole customer experience with Octopus Energy poles apart from British Gas! They really value customer service above anything else.
- I now understand my energy bill and really appreciate everything Octopus does to help toward net-zero. Octopus makes me feel a part of the conversation now they manage my energy supply.
- Switching to Octopus allows you to help bring about change. (if that’s what you believe in) We all need to reimagine how we create and use energy. Octopus has loads of ideas bubbling away!! 👏 🐙
Clear pricing to make informed decisions, that’s what we all need! No hocus pocus!
Thie week for the first time both Octopus Energy and British Gas have removed their flexible tariffs (variable). This happens from time to time with British Gas but it is the first for Octopus. The last time after this happened British Gas prices jumped quite considerably when they went back online.
Compare the market quite shockingly has stopped offering energy comparisons! They say this is due to suppliers restricting the tariffs they have available! Tariffs are just going crazy due to rising energy prices!!
Octopus doesn’t try to lock you in to keep you as a customer their website is easy to understand and they offer great customer service. Their prices are transparent and the format is always the same! So don’t worry if you fix a deal you can always swap if prices drop. You can lock your price in now and then review and swap as and when you feel the time is right!
Getting a quote from British Gas is quite frustrating! They even 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 over 2.1 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.! 🌍👀💗)
Energy Price Cap
The price cap is the most a company can charge you BUT it doesn’t mean they have to go to the MAX!!! Octopus sets their flexible tariff below it!!👏 Here is Greg Jackson, Octopus CEO explaining why.💚⭐️💥
We need a way out of this energy crisis so that in the future we can have more control over our energy production. We need to be less reliant on importing energy from abroad and we need more green energy/storage. The price cap helps but if wholesale energy prices go up the price cap has to go up too!
Greg Jackson of Octopus energy claims that if government invested more in renewable energy, the current ‘perfect storm’ energy crisis could have been avoided. @TomSwarbrick1 | #SwarbrickOnSunday | @g__j pic.twitter.com/JwRc9ho77w

Octopus Energy is NOT one of the 4 energy companies that have been reported as having financial issues this week in the news! Octopus does more than trade energy they innovate and come up with ideas and solutions that have never been tried before. They are a tech lead energy firm which I think is the way forward!!
As well as standard Octopus tariffs Octopus has some groundbreaking smart tariffs. If you are interested in Octopus smart tariffs you will need to ensure you have a smart meter. If you don’t have a smart meter you could switch to one of the standard tariffs and swap once your smart meter is installed. Octopus Smart tariffs are listed in the lower part of this page but here are links to reviews OCTOPUS GO and OCTOPUS AGILE.
Claim £50 credit switching to Octopus Energy.
Once you have chosen to switch to Octopus Energy as a new customer, you’ll be given £50 credit on your first bill and your own personal referral code to share with friends and family. For every person that switches with your code, you both get £50 credited towards your next bill. (I would be delighted if you use mine to get you started, thank you!) CLICK HERE.🥳⟵
When you land on the Octopus Energy website using my link you will see the £50 credit offer at the top of the screen. This just confirms it’s been recorded and will be credited once your first direct debit is paid.
Octopus Energy standard tariffs.
The Octopus Energy standard tariffs from a 24 month fixed, to a flexible Octopus tariff or super green tariff are all 100% green. (keep reading for the smart energy tariffs).
Octopus Energy fixed rate tariff v Flexible Octopus tariff explained. (simply)
My experience choosing the right Octopus Energy tariff.🧑🎤
One of the first things that happened was that I got an email from their CEO Greg Jackson welcoming me to Octopus Energy. I know it was an automated response to my switch to Octopus but I appreciated the tone and personal approach of the email. He promised great customer service, fair prices, and advice on energy saving. I was happy with my Octopus Energy tariff and felt confident I had made the right choice. A few months into my contract I needed some technical advice which I couldn’t find online. Sure enough, he responded and helped me out! To say I was impressed was an understatement.
Which Octopus Energy tariff did I go for?
After comparing the Octopus Energy tariffs I opted for the Octopus Energy fixed tariff, Super Green. It promised 100% renewable energy with my gas being offset and I have been delighted. (Octopus Energy does not include meat food or farm waste in their AD process, unlike some other suppliers.) At the point of signing the smart tariffs hadn’t been introduced. In a way, I am quite glad as I needed a simple fixed green tariff. Moving to a new home has so many extra costs I really wanted to know all my costs were fixed so I could budget well and the Octopus smart tariffs would have been too much of a temptation. Our new Octopus Energy tariff (even the fixed rate) was £264 cheaper than British Gas.
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 24-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. This is where the tech base of Octopus makes it stand out from the crowd. The Octopus Energy tariffs are quite revolutionary but you will need a smart meter installed. All Octopus Energy tariffs for households can be taken out as dual fuel or electricity only plans, but gas only tariffs are not available.
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!
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.
Between 4-8 pm every day (usually nearer 4 pm), the Octopus Energy Agile unit rates are updated for the next 24 hours. These are based on wholesale market rates. There is always lots of chat about how and when to switch to Octopus Energy Agile it’s a little like playing the stock market. Ideally, you want to buy energy when it is at its cheapest BUT what seems to be clear is that customers who switch to the Agile tariff enjoy helping the national grid by shifting their energy use to when there is less demand and also as a bonus save money.
You switch between smart tariffs throughout the year!
Over the last few weeks, the Octopus Agile tariff has been consistently higher than normal. At the moment quite a few existing agile customers are opting for Octopus Go if they have an electric car. The tariff is capped at 35p per kWh but you may want to switch between tariffs when there is less sunshine in the winter you can do that! You can opt-out of the Octopus Energy Agile tariff at any time and switch to another Octopus tariff. The switch is usually made within a day or so 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. You can choose to leave Octopus Energy at any time.
How much does Octopus Energy Agile tariff cost in 2021?
National average cost per kWh on the Agile tariff on Sunday 26th September 2021
Min: 25.7p (04.30)
Max: 35.0p (09.00)
Av. Excluding Peak times 30.5p
Cheapest 4hrs: 26.4p
Peak Time 1600 – 1900: 35.0p

Octopus Agile tariff costs and net-zero.
The average at the moment is quite high based on historic Agile half-hourly pricing and prices have stayed higher the last few weeks due in part I think to the lack of wind and rising gas prices which has had a knock-on effect!! The average Agile price per kWh is more than you would pay on one of the Octopus Energy traditional tariffs but this includes peak prices which you could avoid to bring the price down. Of course, the weather will change and we could get more wind which brings costs down. Customers have made big savings over the course of a year. It just depends on how much you want to monitor the times you use energy. From a green perspective-shifting, your energy use when there is less demand on the national grid is the way to go. This is a very interesting article by Ofgem which highlights why half-hourly pricing is important to hit net-zero
|Octopus Agile - National Average Prices.||Cheapest 4 hours kWh||Average price kWh||Cheapest 30mins kWh. (Less demand on the National Grid / excess green energy)|
|Sunday 26/09/21||26.4p||31.0p||25.7p (04.30)|
|Saturday 25/09/21||28.7p||32.2p||28.7p (02.30)|
|Friday 24/09/21||28.0p||32.4p||26.9p (04.30)|
|Thursday 23/09/21||15.4p||30.3p||10.8p (03.30)|
|Wednesday 22/09/21||30.3p||33.6p||29.2p (14.00)|
|Tuesday 21/09/21||28.5p||32.7p||27.4p (03.30)|
|Monday 20/09/21||24.2p||31.4p||22.6p (03.30)|
|Average per kWh over 7 days. This INCLUDES peak times.||31.94p|
If you want to compare Octopus Energy Agile v Octopus Go the Octopus Watch app (watch as in to look rather than a smartwatch!) is excellent for doing that!! You can find more information on Octopus Agile Apps at the bottom of this page. Agile prices change considerably based on the time of year and weather conditions.
*Tip for an Octopus EV tariff.
If you are an EV driver you may be considering Octopus Agile tariff. Octopus does have a specific Octopus tariff for EV owners called Octopus Go. If you want to play with negative pricing and price plunges to bring your average unit price down even further you can save even more money charging your electric vehicle with Octopus Agile. You have to weigh up what’s right for you. Just remember on Octopus Agile you may use your oven during peak times BUT if you can charge your electric car during energy price plunges it will bring your overall average unit cost down. You charge your car for much longer than you use your oven! I have written about Octopus Agile in greater detail here.⏰
At the moment Octopus Agile half-hourly prices are consistently high. So sadly for EV charging, if you have no solar to export I would select one of the other Octopus Smart tariffs like Octopus Go or Intelligent Octopus. I will update as and when the prices start to drop again. Octopus has now launched its own comparison Octopus Go v Agile on its customer dashboard. It’s very easy to switch between the two!
Octopus Energy EV tariff – Octopus Go
Perfect for charging an electric vehicle.
I’m not lucky enough yet to have an electric vehicle but if you do the Octopus EV tariff – Octopus GO is well worth considering. Octopus Go is an electricity tariff with a bonkers cheap 5p / kWh rate for four hours every night (between 12.30 and 4.30 am). It was designed with EV-angelists in mind as charging can be done very cheaply whilst you are asleep. This can help keep fuel costs around 1p 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 Octopus 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.
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 off-peak charging at 5p per kWh! 🌍💚
Tip: 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 launched a new app on 20th January 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!
Octopus SEG Tariffs
For those with solar panels who want to sell their excess energy.☀️
Octopus Energy offers both standard and smart SEG tariffs. Simply select the tariff that is right for you.
|Octopus Energy Outgoing (SEG) Rates. (26/09/2021)||Per kWh Exported|
|Octopus Outgoing Fixed tariff. (cannot be combines with Octopus Go import)||5.5p|
|Octopus Outgoing Agile.||Variable - half-hourly pricing based on day-ahead wholesale rates. (see table below)|
|Octopus Outgoing Go.||3p|
|If you own a Tesla Power Wall.||CLICK HERE.|
|NO Import tariff with Octopus Energy your only tariff is Outgoing Fixed at this flat rate.||3p|
You can read more of my review on Octopus Outgoing HERE.
The future of energy.
I see this as the future for 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!
I am not at this stage yet but I absolutely love the idea and think it’s something I would like to aspire to. This is why I love Octopus Energy they really make me think out of the box!
Thinking of energy as you would the internet.
You can go a stage further and consider mixing things up. You could have an Octopus Energy Agile Outgoing tariff. This is the part that made my husband stops and listens. On Agile Outgoing an example, you could buy your energy when it’s at its cheapest (I would suggest using one of the apps listed on my Octopus agile post), store it, and then discharge it back to the grid when energy prices peak that day. On a good day, if prices go negative you could even get paid to download energy from the grid and then get paid again to upload. Just think of energy as the internet. You can both download and upload to it.

Octopus Energy rethinking the way we use energy.
It is over two years since we switched to Octopus Energy and CEO Greg Jackson’s promise to provide advice on energy savings has been surpassed. I am now as you can see quite hooked on renewable energy! I have a young family and we only have one shot at protecting our planet. Switching to renewable energy is the way forward. It has the biggest impact on an individual’s carbon footprint and takes just minutes to do. More importantly, it is accessible to the vast majority of people.
Over two years on and I am looking at half-hourly energy prices. I am engaging with my supplier like many new Octopus Energy customers. The Octopus Energy tariffs being offered in 2021/2022 are groundbreaking. That’s not merely my opinion it is a fact! As well as offering fixed or flexible Octopus Energy tariffs in 2021/2022 Octopus offers some really clever techie options too. This is where they really start to differ from other energy companies!!
Make a change and switch to Octopus Energy
If you are on the fence about switching to renewable energy as it all sounds too complicated, it’s not. We have all had to adapt quickly to challenging situations this year. Everyone has had to rethink how they live in a very short space of time. The planet is also in a crisis and needs our help! We can do this and save money quite easily by embracing new technology and ideas. Even if the smart tariffs aren’t for you the standard Octopus Energy tariffs are all 100% green and can save you money too.
We all consume energy.
Energy is a utility we would struggle to live without but in order to make our world more sustainable, we need to look to energy companies like Octopus Energy to lead the way in these uncertain times. They are not afraid to reevaluate the energy market and believe that consumers want to make a difference too. That is the whole ethos of Octopus I believe. They don’t seek passive customers they are happy to take on demanding customers who want them to rethink the whole way we can save money and the environment. I am just waiting on a loan of a thermal imaging camera to find where the heat is escaping from my house. Yes, Octopus will loan you one of those too!!
In the past, the business of energy companies has been to make sure customers are not engaged. Energy companies have made most of their money out of unengaged customers. It’s the job of disrupters to come in and drive that engagement. – Greg Jackson, CEO.
My advice would be to make the switch to renewable energy. You can switch, make a massive difference to your carbon footprint and forget about it for another year or you can get involved using tech at home to become even greener. Just go for it and go green!
On the 10th January 2021, Octopus has launched an entech-led research organisation dubbed the Octopus Centre for Net-Zero. Funded by Octopus Energy it is the first of its kind in the world. All technology from the facility will be made public. With the climate emergency being upon us anything that brings together the energy industry, technology, and policymakers is simply amazing in my books! Well done Octopus Energy for leading the way. 💚

Octopus Energy Podcast.
Octopus entered the market with a desire to disrupt the status quo with energy that’s good for the planet, good for your wallet, and, honestly, good for your soul. Listen to their journey, vision, and tech discussions on this free podcast series. (I have enjoyed them – but I am a bit of a geek) They really are the Silicon Valley of the energy market.
Do you live in South Wales or East Yorkshire?
Is your postcode either YO43 (Yorkshire) CF81 or NP24 ?(South Wales) If you are in either of these areas you can apply to join the “Octopus Fan Club“. Aptly named as customers living near wind turbines in Caerphilly and Market Weighton can apply to benefit from their windy location. Any electricity you use while your local turbine is spinning automatically gives you a 20% discount. Even better, when the wind picks up and the green electrons really start flowing, you’ll get 50% off every unit you use.
You can find more information here. The project was launched today and is the first of its kind in the UK. (18/1/2021)
