Moderator comment - thread renamed from "Octopus Go"

It looks like the good times are over. Just got my renewal notice from Octopus. It seems night rate has doubled. Has anyone had a similar email about Agile?
I think I need to change. I enjoyed the lack of bother with Go but at around 10p a unit I can do better.

It's winter, they'll all be jacking their prices up :)

I think they notify 30 days ahead, and my guess is they won't be changing the website until a bit closer to that time (misleading - just a bit!).

I use their Agile tariff, haven't received any notifications from them recently.

Does look like it's still a 5p/kWh rate according to their website though?

According to my quotes for renewal all night time rates are in double figures. It doesn't stipulate 12.30 to 4.30. I have emailed for clarification but its cheap rate that they quoted would mean that for Go I will be gone.

That sounds like they've moved you to a completely different Econ 7 type tariff.

Perhaps they're binning Go altogether.

They're still quoting 5p night rate for my area (East of England) - I wonder if it's regional?

If it's simply a price hike because you're not a new customer than that's rubbish.

My Octopus Go details on my account still show the 5p rate for the 4hrs overnight. I've had no email to say otherwise.

Can't actually find octopus go anymore, I was looking for when my contract expires in January. Looks like it's agile or a more expensive tariff!
Octopus Energy

I think they still consider it to be a 'beta' tariff. If you're not already with Octopus you'll need to sign up on a standard tariff until they start to supply you then switch to Go or Agile.
