Solar Systems with Energy Storage for Self-Consumption
Octopus Go is one of our beta smart tariffs, specifically designed to help electric vehicle drivers charge up on greener, cheaper power overnight.
The smart tariff with super-cheap electricity for 5p/kWh between 00:30 - 04:30 every night.
Octopus Go charge is on average over 50% cheaper than typical Economy 7 night-time rates (FYI: That's based on all Economy 7 tariffs as of June 2019.)
Agile Octopus introduces Plunge Pricing – a world first that lets you take advantage of these negative price events, and get paid for the electricity you use. Receive alerts whenever prices drop below zero or use our API to program your smart devices.
Perfect for electric vehicles, storage heaters, or anyone who can shift their electricity use outside of peak times.
Enjoy cheaper electricity prices when wholesale prices fall.
Over the last 12 months, unit prices dropped below 2p / kWh 31 times.
With Agile Octopus, you get access to half-hourly energy prices, tied to wholesale prices and updated daily. So when wholesale prices drop, so do your bills – and if you can shift your daily electricity use outside of peak times, you can save even more.
Over the last 12 months, a typical UK family would have saved £210 on Agile Octopus compared to the average Big 6 variable tariff – and could save another £120 by shifting their electricity use outside of peak hours.
Plunge Pricing pays you to take excess energy off the grid
Across the UK, whenever more electricity is generated than consumed, energy prices fall – sometimes to the point where prices drop below zero, and suppliers are paid to take energy off the grid.
Price Cap Protect keeps you safe from surge prices
When more electricity is being used than generated, wholesale prices rise. While price spikes are short-lived, typically lasting 30 minutes to an hour, they do happen.
Agile Octopus includes Price Cap Protect, which ensures you’ll never pay more than 35p / kWh for your electricity, guaranteed.
