Here is a referral link worth £50 for Octopus Energy, which is one of the best energy suppliers in the UK. If you sign up with them via the link, they will credit you with £50 which you will then use as a discount towards future energy costs.
The link takes you directly to the Octopus Energy website. If you sign up without a referral link you will lose out on the £50. Signing up is easy, you don’t need a discount code or voucher, all you do is go to the Octopus Energy website using the link I have provided. One you have clicked on the link you can check that you really are on the referrals section of the Octopus Energy website.
I have been with Octopus Energy for about two years. They are not the cheapest but they offer good service. If you contact them via email they will reply within a few hours.
In order to compare energy suppliers it’s useful to find the kWh prices for both gas and electricity and the daily standing charge price. If you just use the suppliers website for comparison, they will usually give you misleading information on how much you can save.
I compared Octopus to some other energy suppliers and here are my views:
Flow Energy: seems quite good, slightly more expensive than my current Octopus Energy tariff
Ovo Energy: I contacted their support who were very helpful. Their energy prices are surprisingly high.
Avro Energy: their prices are very competitive
Bulb Energy: reasonable prices
Utility Warehouse: I contacted their support and they were slow to reply compared to other energy suppliers
Utilita: have an unusual pricing scheme, where they have no standing charge but they charge extra for the first units used each day. This makes it difficult to compare their prices
First Utility: I looked at review sites and saw bad reviews, so I didn’t consider them
E.On: one of the big six, so I didn’t seriously consider them as I prefer smaller suppliers. Their prices are considerably more expensive than the tariff I’m currently on with Octopus Energy
Overall, I’m happy to stay with Octopus Energy, as good support is important.
As I mentioned, they have a referral scheme, where existing Octopus Energy customers can give potential new customers a referral link. If the new customer signs up via the link he/she is credited with £50 by Octopus Energy.
Here is my Octopus Energy referral link: https://share.octopus.energy/lemon-snow-194
The link takes you directly to the Octopus Energy website. Signing up with Octopus is easy. They will organise the switch from your existing energy supplier. It will take about three weeks before Octopus Energy becomes your new energy supplier.
I hope you use this link to sign up and claim your £50 credit against future energy costs.
