“With Octopus there are no exit fees, and you even get £15 when you refer another person.

The company ethos is so refreshing and they use a greater proportion of renewable energy.”

Nicola Butler

Clearer, simpler pricing, and bills that actually make sense.

“A VERY simple and easy way to view your bills, usage and submit readings.

Best of all they don't rip you off like the other big energy companies or baffle you with numbers and units.”

Jill Geering

Energy that’s better for the planet, at a price that won’t break the bank.

A picture of our cusomer Jessica Colson

“My experience with Octopus Energy has been nothing short of amazing.

The energy is cheap, renewable (we went 100% renewable for just £2 more per month) and the customer service is simply amazing.”
