1. Introduction

These terms and any Estimate and Additional Works Quotation shall form the contract between you and Octopus Energy Services Limited (10434397) (“we”, “us”, “our” and “Octopus”) for the installation of your charge point. They are based on the information you have provided via our online application form, if any of this information changes you must let us know immediately as it may impact your Estimate and/or our ability to complete your Installation. By completing an application form you confirm that you agree to be bound by these terms.

2. Eligibility

2.1 To be eligible for us to install a charge point at your premises you must accurately complete our application form in full, have the legal right to have the charge point installed at your premises and obtain any required planning or building approvals required for your installation (collectively referred to as the ‘Installation Eligibility Criteria’).

2.2 If any of the Installation Eligibility Criteria have not been satisfied we will not complete the installation until they are (assuming the charge point has not already been installed). Where your charge point has already been installed:

(a) you shall be liable for all costs of the charge point and its installation; and

(b) you shall indemnify us for all claims, liabilities, costs losses and expenses (including third party claims and legal fees that we may incur arising from or in connection with the installation of the charge point).

2.3 To be eligible for the option of splitting the cost of your charger into monthly instalments (“Split Payment Option”), your Octopus Energy account must be in credit or have a neutral balance, and you must have an active direct debit for any energy accounts on supply with Octopus Energy Limited (collectively referred to as the ‘Split Payment Eligibility Criteria’).

2.4 If any of the Split Payment Eligibility Criteria have not been satisfied, we will not be eligible for the Split Payment Option and you will instead need to pay for your charger up front.

2.5 We reserve the right to update or amend these Eligibility Criteria at any time.

3. Our Charges and OLEV Grant Application

3.1 If we consider your property is likely to be suitable for a charge point then we will provide you with a price for this work (the ‘Estimate’) which assumes that your premises require a standard installation service only, as described on our website here (a “Standard Installation Service”).

3.2 You will be provided with the option of paying for your charger up front or splitting the cost over 12 months. If you choose to pay up front, you will need to pay this sum before we can schedule your installation. If you choose the Split Payment Option, by accepting these terms and conditions, you agree to pay the charges associated with your charge point in 12 equal instalments.

3.3 Any Estimate or Additional Works Quotation that we provide will be valid for 14 days. To accept the Estimate and/or Additional Works Quotation you will need to make full payment via the link we send to you.

3.4 Where you intend to apply for the government OLEV EVHS Grant we will use the information you provide us to submit the application form on your behalf. Where your application is unsuccessful or it ceases to be available, you will need to pay the difference to us before we can proceed with your installation.

4. Payment Method

4.1 If you choose Split Payment Option, you will be responsible for paying for the charger in 12 equal monthly instalments.

4.2 We will only complete the installation after the first monthly payment has been made.

4.3 The method of payment will be standard monthly direct debit and you are responsible for ensuring that the direct debit can be paid in full on the due date.

4.4 We will act in accordance with the Direct Debit Guarantee.

4.5 If you do not make your payments on time, we may remove your charger at an additional cost of £150.

5. Site Survey and Installation

5.1 Even where you meet the Eligibility Criteria, there may be other factors which would prevent us from completing the installation or which require additional works to be carried out first. Therefore, we will assess whether your premises are suitable and will advise you if they are not, in such circumstances we will refund you.

5.2 Where we identify that additional works are required for us to complete your installation, that do not form part of our Standard Installation Service (“Additional Works”), we shall contact you and provide you with a quotation for the cost of this (the ‘Additional Works Quotation’). To continue with your installation you will need to make this payment via the payment link we send to you.

5.3 We will perform the installation with reasonable skill and care and in good and workmanlike manner and shall comply with all relevant legislation
