In January 2015, OVO announced it would cut prices of its dual fuel standard plans by 10.4%, effective 1 March. This would save the average household about £65 per year.
The news came amongst a flurry of price drops from the big six, who cut prices on average by about 4%, citing the recently reduced costs of wholesale gas prices.
Valentine's Day 2014 saw OVO Energy cut the price of its Cheaper Energy Fixed tariff and subsequently top the energy best buy table. They ran an advertising campaign highlighting this change using the slogan: "Roses are red, Violets are blue, Dump the 'Big Six', OVO loves you".
On the 29th of June, OVO decreased it's average prices by 4.5% for dual fuel customers to £1,088. This represents a 4.8% reduction in the price of electricity, and a 4.4% reduction in the price of gas.
On 4th March 2011, OVO put up the prices of its Green Energy Fixed Dual Fuel and Fixed Energy Dual Fuel tariffs.
OVO Energy launched its domestic tariffs on the 2nd September 2009.
