What is Octopus Go, and how do I join?

Octopus Go is one of our beta smart tariffs, specifically designed to help electric vehicle drivers charge up on greener, cheaper power overnight.

Octopus Go customers get super cheap electricity between 00:30 - 04:30 every night, so they can charge up their EV for a tenth of the price of a traditional car, and keep charging costs as low as 3p per mile.

Octopus Go offers a fixed price for the rest of the day (hours between 04.31 and 00.29) [Check your Octopus Go daytime unit price and standing charge here].

How do I join Octopus Go?

Whether you’re brand new to Octopus, or you’re already a customer of ours, head to our Octopus Go page below to sign up and get all the information you'll need:

You’ll first need a smart meter we can get half-hourly readings from (either a second generation ‘SMETS2’ meter or a first generation ‘SMETS1’ meter made by Secure). Here’s how to work out what type of meter you have.

If you don’t have a suitable smart meter yet, you can still sign up for Agile and we’ll get in contact with you to arrange a smart meter installation as soon as possible.

Please note, there may be times when we can’t install your smart meter right away. This is generally due to local Covid restrictions, WAN coverage in your area, and engineer availability. To find out more, we've written a blog explaining why we can’t always give an exact timeframe for your smart meter installation.
