Last update: May 2021

An introduction to Octopus Energy

Founded in just 2015, Octopus Energy really have come a long way. With over 1 million customers, and gaining 30,000 on average every month, Octopus have quickly become a household name in the UK. But what makes them so popular? Firstly, their plans are considered pretty affordable, which is attractive compared to the likes of the Big 6 who tend to be much pricier. Secondly, they are widely thought to be one of the greenest suppliers on the market, since they offer 100% renewable electricity to their customers, and aim to offset their customers' gas consumption. A smaller supplier, they tend to be praised for their customer service.

Moreover, a few partnerships and acquisitions have helped Octopus to become a leader in the UK energy market. In 2018, they buddied up with M&S energy, followed by a partnership with Coop energy the following year. This gained them tens of thousands of new customers and allowed them to massively expand their market share. As a result, Octopus know the UK energy market. So whether it's for your household or your business, they will definitely have a plan for your needs.

How to set-up your Octopus Energy contract in Wolverhampton?

As is the case with switching to any supplier in Wolverhampton, you need to make sure that things are nicely set up first to be switched over to a new plan. Here we will walk you through how this works if you are moving to a new property.

The most important thing to do in both your old and new properties is to take meter readings. This will ensure that you aren't overcharged for your energy consumption in your new home in Wolverhampton or your old home, wherever it may be. The suppliers corresponding to each property will know exactly when to stop charging you when you leave your old place, and start charging you as you move into your new property.

There is one downside to switching when you move to a new property - you won't be able to switch to a new plan until your first day in your new home. So for the first month or so, you will be put on a default - or 'deemed' - tariff. These tend to be more expensive than a tariff that you choose to switch to. So, once you move into your new home, you should start looking into new energy plans as soon as possible so you can switch to a more affordable plan.

If you decide that Octopus are the supplier for you when you switch, then you can ring them up and speak to a representative who can switch you over to your preferred tariff. Alternatively, give us a ring and our experts will switch you to the best plan on the market.

Is Switching to Octopus in Wolverhampton hard?

Switching energy suppliers really isn't difficult, especially when you have the Switch Plan experts here to help! All it involves is one quick phone call in which you outline your energy requirements and what you are looking for in your energy plan, and you can be switched over to a new plan in just minutes. If you decide you want to switch to an Octopus Energy deal, then you can ring them up on 0330 808 1080 and their representatives can carry out the switch for you from beginning to end. Alternatively, if you decide you want an alternative energy plan, then have a chat with one of our experts by ringing 0330 054 0018.

Energy consumption in Wolverhampton

Who supplies energy in to the 235,601 Wulfrunians of Wolverhampton?

The most popular energy supplier in West Midlands is British Gas. A large proportion of the inhabitants from large cities such as Stoke-on-Trent, Newcastle upon Tyne and Wolverhampton get their energy from this supplier, and often they haven't actually switched at all. This means they could be losing a large sum of money. Some Brits have managed to save up to ยฃ400 a year on their energy bills simply by switching. So, although British Gas is the most popular supplier in your new area, don't feel that you are obliged to stick with them. We don't have anything against this provider, but switching itself can save you money. And our aim is to help you do that.

How much is the average price/kWh in Wolverhampton?

Wulfrunians tend to pay somewhere around ยฃ10.38 for a kWh on average. This is roughly ยฃ2.44% less than the UK average. This might not mean much to you, but it can be a good indicator of how much you are paying compared to other regions.

As you know prices change regularly. They also change based on your location so prices could well be different in close by cities such as Stafford Stone or Tamworth.

In Wolverhampton, how much energy do people consume?

Knowing how much a kWh tends to cost in a region is all well and good, but it's even more useful to know what the average consumption is in a particular area. 2018 government data indicates that the average Wulfrunian household consumes 3,573.05 kWh a year. The median consumption of that same household would be 3,173.62 kWh.

Who distributes electricity in Wolverhampton?

In case of an emergency, or if you have a very specific request regarding your energy provision, then you might need to get in touch with your distributor. In Wolverhampton, it is Western Power Distribution these are the numbers to ring should you need to get in touch. In short, a distribution network operator is in charge of making sure that electricity arrives to your home from its source, which is the national grid. Distribution network operators are regional, so different parts of the UK have different operators. We often don't know how to get in touch with our operator, since customers do not usually have to speak directly to them. That being said, we believe that Wulfrunians should have all the information and contact details about their DNO available to them.
