    Hi, I'm on the Octopus GO May 2021 v1 tariff which is ending in September, I've just had an email from Octopus giving me the rates to renew for a year or go onto a variable rate. As I'm sure many of you are aware, it's quite a jump, I'm just trying to get a feel of what people are paying and...
  2. General Charging Discussion
    Hi all, New to the EV game. Took delivery of a BMW ix3 before xmas and love the car. We have had a PodPoint installed in our drive and will be getting a 5.5kWh solar system installed with Tesla Powerwall this year. We're in the process of transferring to Octopus Energy to take advantage of the...

    Hi All, I'm soon going to be new to home charging and looking for the best home electricity tariff, something that's been asked lot's I'm sure sorry. Hopefully my circumstances make the question not so obvious. I am a high mileage user 1,000+ per week. I'm likely to need to charge from 10-20%...

    I've adapted some existing tech to automate Zappi boost charging during 'Plunge Pricing' on 'Octopus Agile'. But have discovered that it's far more useful than I originally imagined. Using a Smart Wi-Fi Plug to trigger the Zappi 'E-Sense' feature. I thought others might be interested in this...
  9. General Charging Discussion
    Hi all, Sorry if this has been asked but I have had a look and couldn't find anything. I have recently switched to Octopus Energy, and they offer a discount for the EO mini pro. Installs from £369 for the non-tethered option which is my preference. I've received a quote from a company called...

    Octopus Energy seem to be one of the energy providers that are being really innovative. They've already got Octopus GO and Octpus Agile tariffs which can both work well fpr EV drivers. Well they ae now looking at trialing V2G (Vehicle 2 Grid). I know there was another initiative somewhere in...
