I was looking at the fixed rate deal you took out at Octopus and the tarrif is exactly the same as what my flexible tarrif will be from April 1st, I may as well stay on my flexible, although I'm hoping to get a smart meter to go on the tracker tarrif I just need to be off work the whole day!

It will save me at least £15 this month alone and may well switch in April if there is better. I do not really want a smart meter cuz knowing my luck it will be faulty and my bills increase

Re: The energy crisis

Just got an email from EDF telling me the prices are going down. Glad I didn't fix mine for 12 months.

Re: The energy crisis

So new rates come in today, Octopus recommend I reduce my monthly payment from their recommended £90 a month(was paying £82 based on account balance) to £75 a month so that's nice.

I wonder what happens after I get my Smart Meters installed on Friday I'm dreading it going wrong and increasing my bills.

Well it shouldnt have been a surprise, the cap was predicted to be lower months ago.
The next one is predicted to be even lower, then rise slightly after that - very few fixed deals are going to be worth it atm.

My current Flexible Rate is exactly the same as their fixed rate, it looks like the tracker tarrif for me is a no brainer after my meters are installed assuming I can go straight on it.

I've just had my smart meters installed, my plan is to go onto their Tracker when it's all setup, how easy is it to swap to Agile in the future is their a waiting list and can you dropout without a penalty?

Re: The energy crisis

Just logged into my Octopus account as it's changing daily since getting my smart meters installed and there is some Octoplus rewards scheme I've just opted into and got 500 points.

There is something about free electricity at certain times and they will email me. Is this a new thing or has it been around a while?

Thanks. Yes I've been reading that I was just wondering if this was New to everyone or just New to me since installing smart meters.

Re: The energy crisis

We have mains gas water heating. Can anyone spot when the missus broke her arm, and it was down to me to do the washing up all the time since?
