About Octopus Energy
Octopus Energy joined the domestic energy market in 2016, using technology to create a leaner business from the ground up.
That meant doing away with long calls to call centres, letters piling up in mailboxes, and the notorious bureaucracy this industry is famous for, and promising a business model more fit for the 21st century, including offering contract-free, simpler tariffs with transparent pricing.
Octopus Energy is founded on a commitment to renewable energy, and all their customers, not just those on 'green' tariffs, benefit from 50% of their electricity matched by electricity generated from renewable sources like UK wind farms.
In fact, the greener energy Octopus customers use means that in the last year, 26,900 fewer tonnes of CO2 have been released into the atmosphere than if their customers had been with typical UK energy suppliers. That's roughly the same climate impact as 140 trees for each and every Octopus Energy customer (or more than 13 million trees total).
