Octopus Energy’s green energy contributions in Faversham

Octopus Energy is a rockstar when it comes to green energy. They are UK’s largest solar power investor (as they claim) and they gather their energy from a combination of wind, solar, and hydropower. Often when consumers are looking for green energy, they are curious of the suppliers energy mix. In case you didn’t already know, we got you covered! See below for their fuel mix:

  • 75.3% wind
  • 31% solar
  • 3.7% hydropower

In addition to purchasing green energy, Octopus also generates it! One of their plans - the “Supergreen Octopus” combines 100% renewable energy with carbon offsets. However, where Octopus energy is lacking is that they do not offer carbon-neutral biomethane gas, which is typical for most green energy suppliers.

Switching to Octopus Energy Faversham - everything you need to know.

Switching to any supplier in Faversham involves more or less the same process. If you are moving from one property to another, then the process differs from if you are simply switching from one supplier to another in the same property. The most important thing to remember is to taking meter readings in both properties. When you leave your old property, be sure to take a meter reading and jot it down so you can provide information upon request of when you finished using energy in that property. Then, when you move into your next property, you must also take a meter reading. This is so your new supplier knows exactly when to start charging you for energy in your new place.

The only disadvantage to switching when you move house is that you will automatically start consuming energy on a default or 'deemed' contract. These tend to be pricier than a plan that you choose to switch to, so for the first month in your new property you might be spending a bit more than you had hoped. As a result, you want to make sure that you do your research as soon as possible to start the process. That way you can get started on a cheaper tariff as soon as possible and start saving.

If you decide that Octopus are the right supplier for you in Faversham, then give them a ring and they can switch you over to your preferred plan in one quick phone call. If an alternative plan is better, then ring up our Switch Plan and we can switch you over to a new tariff in no time.
