Octopus have just invited me to renew my tarriff. Some huge increases in cost.

Current Tarriff: Standing 25.00p, Day 14.63p/kw, Night 5p/kw
New Tarriff: Standing 23.58p, Day 22.00p/kw, Night 14p/kw (Flexible Octopus)

This means the cost of putting 30kw into your vehicle overnight has increased from £1.50 to £4.20 (180% price rise)
This means the cost of putting 30kw into your vehicle daytime has increased from £4.39 to £6.60 (50% price increase)

Does anyone know of any better tarriffs CURRENTLY available?

The thread title says Go but the prices you have quoted are for flexible. Go prices have not changed much

The only options they are offering in the renewal seems to be "Super Green", "Fixed", or "Flexible" - which I quoted. I'm presuming that this means Go that you have mentioned is not something I can renew to? I'm baffled.

You need to get in touch with them. I’d advise calling them.

Though this thread has prompted some useful discussion it is perhaps worthy of a new title?
Agreed. If I knew how to retitle / edit the title I would. Maybe admin could just close the thread....
Thanks to all for contributing to solving that the issue is the unfortunate way Octopus issue their renewal invite.

Maybe this link would allow you to start a new term with Go without faff of contacting Octopus;


I've switched to Octopus Go several times and each time just done it via that link (once when i joined octopus, once leaving agile, and once to start a new 12months term to lock in the rates before they went up).

Not sure how this is different to any other energy supplier - your tariff contract ends and they offer you a usually more expensive one unless you either call or switch.

I was in a similar situation with renewal due early September and those higher tariffs proffered.
I was on single rate electricity and recently had a smart meter fitted but they weren't billing me for gas!
I emailed octopus about the gas and asked about EV charging.
They fixed the gas bill and sent me a link to sign up for the GO tariff which I used to switch same day and good for the next 12 months :)

Note that the not-cheap rate *will* be more expensive than what you had -- electricity prices are through the roof compared with a year ago.
