Power for the people

Power for the people

We were founded on the belief that energy should be better - for you and for the environment.

The energy industry in Britain is ruled by a handful of complacent dinosaurs peddling fossil fuels, pricing trickery and poor customer service. In 2015 we decided it was time someone, Octopus entered the market to disrupt the status quo with energy that’s good for the planet, good for your wallet, and good for your sanity.

Since then, we’ve been picking up 30,000 customers a month on average, and now supply energy to over 400,000 UK homes (and counting). To this day, 91% of our customers rate us as 5* Excellent on TrustPilot; and we’re the only supplier to be recommended by consumer champion, Which?.


We work for you

We do things differently. Our prices are fair and transparent, and we don’t lock you into a contract, so you can leave at any time. In fact, we try to make everything as easy as possible for you, from the simplicity of our bills to offering customer service over email and social media at times that suit you - 8am-10pm, 7 days a week.

The better choice, whether it’s for your home, or your business

We provide an easy, affordable energy option for the UK’s visionary businesses. Whether you’re one of the world’s biggest football clubs or selling magic wands in Brighton, we’ll supply your business with power from the sun.

We work with amazing brands like Arsenal FC and Marks & Spencer, helping some legendary UK institutions lead the charge on business sustainability nationwide.

Renewable energy as standard

We want to make the eco-friendly choice the easy choice, so all of our tariffs use 100% green electricity - and they’re no more expensive than our competitors’ non-green tariffs. You can also carbon offset the gas you use if you want to minimise your environmental impact even further.

And we make sure today’s renewables infrastructure keeps on turning, generating clean, green energy to power the UK. We’re backed by Octopus Investments, the UK’s largest investor in solar power, responsible for nearly 40% of the nation’s large scale solar generation.

Energy fit for the future

While we look after your energy supply today, we’re also building technology that will define the industry’s future, from the big ideas to the small.

In 2016, we launched Octopus Tracker, a UK-first tariff championing price transparency like never before, offering daily rates based on the wholesale price of energy.

Then, in 2018, we became the only supplier to really harness the potential of smart meter technology with Agile Octopus, a time of use tariff with half-hourly rates allowing customers to adjust their consumption to times when the wholesale price of energy is cheapest.

Next came Octopus Go, a tariff designed just for EV drivers, with a super cheap night rate so these early adopters of the future of green transport can always wake up fully charged.

We’re also building intuitive tech solutions to put control back in your hands — our online account service lets customers manage their energy from start to finish, from submitting readings to changing account and payment details, to booking metering appointments and even changing tariffs.

And it’s not just about your home energy: Octopus Electric Vehicles is helping UK drivers switch to a greener cars, providing everything from the car itself to smart charging options. We’re getting our world ready for this electric revolution, with Powerloop, an EV leasing bundle introducing vehicle-to-grid charging to UK homes. Drivers use their cars to power their homes during times of peak energy demand to relieve pressure on the grid.
