OVO Energy price changes 2019

In March 2019, OVO Energy announced a 10% increase to prices on its standard variable tariff, to come into effect 1 April 2019. The supplier was one of many to raise prices in reaction to Ofgem's price cap increase.

In September 2018, OVO Energy announced it would be increasing energy prices for variable rates tariffs, as well as removing discounts for online account management.

The gas and electricity supplier stated that due to a 15% rise in wholesale energy costs. The rise would take effect 17 October 2018.

OVO Energy gas and electricity

OVO Energy supplies both gas and electricity tariffs to customers throughout the UK. Customers can choose between dual fuel, gas-only or electricity-only OVO tariffs, meaning that there’s something for everyone regardless of their requirements.

OVO Energy renewable energy

OVO Energy’s various renewable energy initiatives are some of its biggest selling points given the increased attention that environmental responsibility is receiving on a global scale.

OVO supplies both gas and electricity to customers throughout the UK. Every customer receives 33% renewable electricity as standard, but they can choose to upgrade to 100% renewable and also have five trees planted on their behalf.

The supplier hasn’t managed quite the same level of commitment when it comes to gas, but it still offers 50% renewable gas and offsets the other 50% through funding projects that protect threatened forests around the world.

OVO Energy and Economy Energy

In January 2019, Ofgem announced that OVO Energy would be the supplier of last resort for customers of Economy Energy, which had ceased trading earlier in the year.

OVO Energy was chosen after a competitive process was run by Ofgem to ensure the new supplier would provide a competitive tariff and honour existing credit balances and Warm Home Discount payments of Economy Energy customers.
