3 simple steps to get onto Octopus Go
② Hang tight while we get your smart meter set up
It typically takes us 14 days to connect to your smart meter. We'll let you know once we're ready to roll. To join Octopus Go you'll need to have a SMETS2 or some types of SMETS1 smart meter installed to join the tariff. If you don't have one, we can arrange to install a SMETS2 smart meter at no extra cost. These are suitable for most homes (with some exceptions).
Everything you need to know about smart meters with Octopus.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I claim my credit?
Simply sign up to Octopus Go, the tariff designed specifically for EV drivers, or any one of our other great value tariffs here.
The £50 credit will be automatically added to your account once you're on supply and your first direct debit has been taken (usually around 10 days later).
What if I'm already an Octopus customer?
If you’re an existing Octopus Energy customer switching your electricity tariff to Octopus Go please enter your Octopus account number here to receive £50 credit towards your bill.
How could I save £540 with Octopus Go?
With Octopus Go you'll save when charging your EV and on the energy use of your whole home with 4 hours of cheap, green energy for your whole home every night.
How much you'll save depends on how often you charge your EV and how much of your home's electricity you use during off-peak hours.
For example, considering energy prices in January 2024, a Range Rover plug-in electric hybrid owner driving around 10,000 miles/year and living in a typical large-sized home could save £540 by switching to Octopus Go.
That's based on:
- The driver will cover 5,000 miles/year using a Range Rover plug-in electric hybrid's battery, with an efficiency of 0.548 kWh/mile
- An average large-sized home using 4,100 kWh/year
- 8.82% of household consumption takes place during off-peak hours. Based on the consumption behaviour of the typical Octopus customer

What unit rates and standing charge will I pay on the Go tariff?
The Go tariff features two unit rates:
- A peak unit price – the price you'll be charged per unit of energy you use most of the time, between 04:30 and 00:30. This rate varies depending where you are in the UK.
- An off-peak unit price – what you'll be charged per unit of energy used between 00:30 and 04.30. This is 9p / kWh, no matter where you are.
There's also a standing charge, which again varies depending where you live in the UK.
You can check what unit rates and standing charge apply in your area here: www.octopus.energy/go/rates
Do I need a smart meter to get on Go?
Yes. Go's innovative pricing is only possible through smart meter tech. We need to be able to link to your smart meter automatically too, which means to get on Go, you must have a SMETS2 or Secure SMETS1 smart meter that we can take half hourly readings from.
How do I get a smart meter
Once you've registered your interest, our team will be in contact when we have an appointment in your area.
What if I don't want to get up at 1am to turn my charger on?
Fear not. We have partnerships with a few different smart charging trailblazers, like Ohme, the UK's first smart home charging cable, which can automatically turn charge mode on when the 'off-peak' charging period kicks in.

Can I use my cheap charging period for anything other than charging my car?
Is there a Go gas tariff?
No. Octopus Go is an electricity tariff, created for drivers to charge their electric cars. This kind of smart tariff passes on the benefits of the UK electricity market's wholesale prices, which are highly variable through the day. Wholesale gas prices don’t really vary throughout the day, so a Go gas tariff wouldn't really be able to have that same amazing off-peak rate.
If you're a dual fuel customer, we can supply you gas too, of course. Just choose one of our standard gas tariffs, which you can get a quote for any time at www.octopus.energy/quote.
Can I be an electricity-only customer, and get my gas from another supplier?
Yes! Choose 'electricity only' at signup.
Can I use Octopus Go with my export tariff?
We’ve created a new tariff called Outgoing Fixed Lite, which gives Octopus Go customers export rates of 8p/kWh. You can sign up to the tariff here.
Are other Octopus tariffs available?
Yes, you can switch to any one of our Octopus tariffs here.
Can I use Octopus Go in more than one property?
No, the tariff is linked to a single property.
Is Go suitable for multiple car households?
Yes. You can use the Go tariff to charge more than one car.
What happens to the off-peak period during daylight savings?
Number one and most important: no matter what your IHD says, your off-peak period stays between 00:30 and 04:30.
Why is my IHD saying something different?
This SHOULD be straightforward – but some customers have noticed that their in-home display (part of the smart meter infrastructure) shows the cheap rate kicking in at 01:30 following a clock change.
On your bills, it'll say the cheap period starts at 00:30. This is obviously pretty confusing, and makes it hard to know which is correct. The challenge is that the IHD is not “determining” anything. It’s just displaying some information, and in the journey from Octopus to DCC (the government’s data company, which handles smart meter data), to TMA (a company who connect Octopus’s smart meters to DCC), to the comms hub (a regulated device which carries the signal to the smart meter), to the smart meter itself, to the IHD (which sits on a different network, established by your electricity meter) there are many steps – each of which may pass the time signal as it is, or may “helpfully” correct it from GMT to BST etc.
There are quite a few different ways to get a message to the IHD and some are simpler than others, but allow less functionality – so we’re trying to use the smartest way... but it’s also the most complex.

1 Savings calculated by comparing a typical EV-owning household’s consumption on Octopus Go rates vs. Octopus’s Standard Variable Tariff (SVT) rates. Both the Standard Variable Tariff and Octopus Go calculation assume a 2484kWh/year estimated annual consumption (EAC) for charging alone. This is based on the assumption that the driver will cover 5,000 miles/year using a Range Rover plug-in electric hybrid's battery, with an efficiency of 0.548 kWh/mile (31.8kWh usable battery capacity and real world range of 58 miles).
The Octopus Go calculation assumes all charging is done between 00:30-04:30, at the off-peak rate, and the driver is living in an average large-sized home using 4,100kWh/year (excluding their charging consumption).
The Octopus Go calculation assumes 8.82% of household consumption takes place during off-peak hours, based on the consumption behaviour of typical Octopus customers.
