Since writing my article on the 3 Things you must do when you own a Tesla in the UK, I have had numerous emails asking for a referral code for Octopus Energy.
But… I don’t want everyone thinking that I am just referring Octopus for the referral credit, I want to promote Octopus due to the service, pricing and the infrastructure behind it.
So if you do want the referral code and you don’t want to read this article, CLICK ME and it will fire you down to the link to get us both £50 credit when signing up to Octopus Energy.
Why Octopus Energy?
Octopus Energy is one of the newer electricity companies starting in 2015. It specialises in sustainable energy and now has over 1.5 million domestic and business customers.
I was fighting with changing for a long time and when my lovely Mother-in-Law told me that the Co-op had moved her over to Octopus and how good they were, my ears definately pricked up.
On top of this, I have an electric car! Yes a Tesla Model 3 if you hadn’t guessed by this website. So I wanted to use an energy company that could help me save money in the long run.
Electric Car Owners Take Note
Now a little viewing of Electric Vehicle Man on YouTube introduced me properly to the Octopus Agile Tariff. Rates that revolve around the wholesale price of electricity, pair this with an OHME SMART HOME CHARGER and Octopus at some points of the year, actually pay you to take electricity off the grid.
But the smart charger is better than this, it talks to the API’s of Octopus Enrgy and can inteligently charge your car at the cheaper times of the day, saving you money.
Octopus Energy App
The other huge benefit to Opctopus Energy is its amazing App. It ooks simple on your screen and very easy to navigate. It clearly shows your balance, your monthly payments and your bills with ease.
It also encourages you and reminds you to do regular electricity and gas readings, if you go on the Agile tariff you will require a smart meter that sends your usage to Octopus every 30 minutes, but it is fitted free of charge.
Not only have we saved money over our old (rubbish) provider, but we’re in more control of our bills and usage, both saving money and the environment.
