Hi
Thought I would start a generic thread that those who have used a referral code from a speak ev member when moving to octopus, can say thank you, as all you get is a first name when using. So thank you to those who have used mine.

cheers. doesn't show me an option for the go tariff so I've emailed them.
I am in the process of changing to Go:

Pick an interim tariff. Use the referral link to switch to that one. Once you are on the interim tariff, ask to change to go.

Can someone please tell me about the change of meter thing. Is it a smart meter and is it a bodge up 'only Octopus' sort of 'smart meter'?

Still not very comfortable swapping out meters just for a few pence saving.

Yes you will need a smart meter. If you have SMETS 2 meter installed (the newest variant) then it is designed to be fully portable between energy suppliers. If your circumstances dictate that you need to have a SMETS1 smart meter fitted, then it will likely become dumb if you ever move suppliers in the future. However, there is an imminent programme to update SMETS 1 meters to be fully portable between, although I don't believe it has started yet.

But ....

Octopus admit they are having trouble with SMETS 2 meters. Some installs do not go smoothly.


They are starting to use their own team to install meters which might be better.
