Octopus Energy prices, dual fuel rates & tariffs in Letchworth Garden City

Octopus is known for having reasonable, hyper competitive prices, but their tariffs are unique as well, unlike most other energy suppliers out there. They are 100% renewable, which is rare, especially as a low cost provider. 100% renewable energy counts towards both electricity and gas.

If you have an electric vehicle - Octopus Energy might be the perfect provider for you. They have an electric vehicle incentive where customers can lease out an electric car and charger, and access cheaper rates to charge the vehicle (often at night if you select an economy 7 plan where the tariffs vary between day and night). Octopus Energy stands to their green initiatives, as you can see, one of their goals is to improve the ease of access to electric vehicles.
