Want to join Go?

You'll need to:

  1. Sign up to Octopus

    Switch to Go on an interim tariff. Get a quote here.

  2. Have a SecureTM smart meter

    You will need to have a SMETS2 smart meter or a SecureTM branded SMETS1 meter that we can receive half-hourly consumption data from.

    If you don't already have one of these smart meters we'll automatically arrange a SecureTM smart meter installation at no extra charge.

    If you're not sure whether your SMETS1 is from SecureTM, it should be written on the front of your smart meter.

  3. Confirmation email

    Once we've received half-hourly readings from your smart meter, which takes up to 7 days, we'll send you an email inviting you to complete your switch to Octopus Go.

  4. Go charging!

    With a smart charger or Ohme smart cable, plug in your car before bed and your charger will only start to charge when the cheap 5p price kicks in.

Octopus Go is a product of our labs, available now to customers through our beta programme.

You'll need a SMETS2 smart meter, or a SecureTM branded SMETS1 meter, that we can receive half-hourly consumption data from.

If you don't already have one of these meters, we'll arrange an installation at no extra charge. However, as our founder Greg has explained, changes in the government's smart meter programme means there are still issues being ironed out in the installation process, connectivity, and communications.

These issues are more likely to affect our smart tariffs, as they make more demands on smart meter functionality.

Currently, over 95% of customers who need a smart meter have it installed and are on their chosen tariff within 6 weeks.

If you're OK that some things may not work first time, that installations and processes may take longer than we'd like, and you'd like to work with us to make world-changing energy tariffs a reality, check this box so we know you're onboard:

Octopus Go is a cutting edge innovation created by Octopus's unique technology. Unlike products available from other companies, it relies on a smart meter system (which as our Founder Greg explains here, is not always fully reliable). Some customers have experienced delays. However, of the thousands of customers on these smart tariffs, the vast majority are now experiencing smooth service.
