Outgoing Octopus is a smart export tariff and our successor to the feed-in tariff (FIT). Perfect for homes with solar panels, battery storage, or any other way of sharing energy back to the grid.
The power to choose
Outgoing Octopus comes in two flavours – Fixed or Agile. Outgoing Fixed guarantees 5.5p per kWh for every unit you export. Outgoing Agile matches your half-hourly prices with day-ahead wholesale rates, helping you make the most of the energy you generate.
A smart export tariff for the smart grid
With energy storage and Outgoing Agile, you can sell your electricity at the most valuable time for you. Combine 4 kWp of solar panels with battery storage, and you could earn £436 – over 50% more than the same panels on a fixed 5.5p per kWh rate.
Combine this with our Agile tariff for the electricity coming in to your home, and integration with Amazon Alexa, IFTTT, or smart EV charging, to really make the most of your smart grid.
Outgoing Octopus: it's win-win-win
With an average of 6 Octopus Energy customers per square mile across Britain, we can sell your energy to your neighbour, enabling the first ever mass peer-to-peer energy trading in this country.
So every time you benefit from the energy you sell, Octopus Energy customers will benefit from cheaper electricity prices and lower transmission costs, and the planet will benefit from greener, more flexible energy.
Outgoing Octopus is available now
Outgoing Octopus is available to Octopus customers with a SecureTM smart meter that we can receive half-hourly export data from.
Currently, you can't be on both Outgoing Octopus AND Octopus Go, our electricity consumption tariff designed for electric vehicle drivers – but any other consumption tariff is fine.
If you have started receiving FiTs within the last 12 months, the FiTs rules mean that you won't be able to switch to Outgoing Octopus just yet.
