I've ordered a solar system, install date is the 5th Nov.
Shame you'll have to wait 5 months to see if it works
Same here wooly jumpers are already out and worn. Eon looks like 21 or 22p not sure which applies they have two tariffs both with the same name which is odd.
All the large council buildings I visit have got their heating on full blast 24/7 now I wear shorts when I'm in there or I'm boiling and some of the staff are only there a few hours a day considering how much I'm paying for council tax it makes me fume. Think I might have to move in and squat.
I can only hope if NeonReef do go, I get put back onto Octopus. I should have stayed with them on Octopus Go at 16p/kWh
Totally this! Unless the tariff is SVR you are only cheating yourself, that is unless you are lucky to have locked in with one of the big 6 for a multi year deal.
Octopus are still offering their Go tariff. So it can make sense to swap sometimes.
Go tariff now requires proof you own an EV.
This is what I’ve been moved to with Shell.
Prices any good or worth switching?
Electricity // Gas
(per day) 24.11p // 26.11p
(per kWh) 20.680p // 4.169p
Interesting that they want EV customers that are costing them more money then non-EV customers at the moment.
Standard price that.
Is variable so will go up in April but best you'll get Iver winter
Okie dokie - thanks
I’ll set a reminder to switch in April.
Just checked my latest bill from green and I was paying 14p/unit for electric and 2.5p/unit for gas
You'll probably not be able to switch to cheaper at that time. But worth checking.
Yeah it's a big price hike
Basically double price on gas and nearly same on elec
Did you use a local firm or national?
Looking into solar currently...assuming you went with a battery system to make it viable?
Wonder when that started, been with Octopus only just on a month, no mention of needing an EV when I switched from "Flexible" to the "GO" tariff on the 24th Sept.
A company from Preston, didn't go battery as in my calculations it doesnt improve my ROI, if anything exporting with octopus outgoing agile will reduce my ROI as the unit rate averages a bit over 5.5p/kwh
Just need my SoLR to take over my supply so I can initiate a move to Octopus (they still offer SVR you just have to request it) then get smart meters installed and the outoging agile tariff applied by the spring
In winter, a home storage battery will never get fully charged and now with the go tariff only being for EV owners, you can't even charge it from that.
UPS Solar? We're near Preston and was looking around at some options.
with octo go here, had a lengthy chat with their ops team, they said to stay on this tariff and don't change as then it will be market capped till April next year
pretty much what Martin Lewis has been saying
I was interested in the go faster tariff they have but he said don't do it or the price will jump up
saw someone post this online
No, eco renewables group.
Give them a shout, ask for Chris, tell them Carl referred you.
Red electrical are also very highly regarded.
Similar to your situation, just gone from fixed to variable and all of the fixed deals I'm seeing are much more expensive.
Currently paying 3.86p for gas.
