Very satified customer.

I have never had any problem with OVO, I have been with them for several years now and not because I don't 'check around' because I do. whenever my deal is approaching its end, they contact me in plenty of time, which is important to me, and I am able to move onto a new deal or stay on the same. They keep me informed of my balance on a regular basis, again something which is important to me, and getting money back is not really a problem, at least for those who are computor literate, and if you are not ( Which I am not, they guide you through the process if necessary)

Super-helpful with many issues

I had many questions about 3 OVo accounts in my name which i had having moved out of my house for 6 months and moved back in again. Fergus patiently worked through all my questions on each account with me. On the first account, we confirmed it was all as I expected. On the second account, Fergus carefully checked when my £297 refund would arrive. And on the third account (now closed), he explained all the transactions on it to my satisfaction and advised me to pay the balance of £1.07 owing now rather than waiting for OVo to take another DD payment of £73 and then refunding me the surplus. This is did and Fergus also advised me that I could reduce my DD on my active account because the smart meter readings were showing I was using less than expected. And he did that for me too. So we worked through a lot of issues and fully resolved them all. He spent a lot of time helping me and I feel fully satisfied. I was impressed at Fergus’ knowledge of the OVo systems and his willingness to see issues through to the end. A star employee!

They have direct contact number to call not like other providers ( hard to speak to someone) the guy who helped me he was so helpful and kind. I have to wait very short time to connect to someone. I am very impressed with their service. Thank you Ovo team.

Good advice and a sympathetic ear

I was looking for advice as coming to end of 2yr fixed SSE plan, your operative, so sorry but forgot his name, was so helpful and gave me good advice. He was also sympathetic with regard to increasing prices, though not his fault, it was really helpful to give me a little more clarity as to how to move forward.

Impressed all in all

The support operative I called very quickly resolved an issue at my property that was preventing me from signing up online, then took me through available options and tariffs efficiently and professionally. He turned around what I thought would be a frustrating phone call into one that was successful within a short time. Excellent work. A bonus was that call waiting times were also short.

Your EV tariff questions answered

This depends on the size of the EV’s battery. For example, a Renault ZOE has a 52kWh battery, so charging it with an average OVO Drive rate of 36.5p/kWh would cost just over £18.98. The ZOE has a 245 mile range, which means you’d be paying 7.7p per mile. Interested in finding out more about charging costs? Read our guide on how much it will cost to charge an electric car at home, workplace and abroad.

Far less than you'll be spending on petrol, that's for sure! Exact costs will depend on your driving style, the efficiency of your car, and – most importantly – how many miles you drive! Using OVO Drive's average rate of 36.5p/kWh, a typical vehicle will cost around 9.1p for every mile you drive. As an example, if you do 7600 miles a year, that'll be £693.5 a year!

Some EV tariffs offer lower rates for charging at night. But with OVO Drive’s flat rate, you’re not tied to charging your car overnight. Charge any time for the same flat rate. What are you waiting for? Get a quote and sign up today!

You’re welcome to join OVO Drive without a smart meter. If you’d like one once you’ve signed up, you can book a smart meter appointment after you've got your first OVO statement.

Yes, OVO Drive is specially designed for electric vehicle (EV) drivers – so you do need to have an EV to be on the plan.

No, we’re sorry – OVO Drive is a dual-fuel only plan, so you’ll need to have both your electricity and gas with us.

Please know, if you have electric heating or storage heating as the main source of heat for your home, unfortunately, we won’t be able to offer you an OVO Drive plan.

If you’re on our variable plan,you can switch to a fixed plan at any time, and your new plan will start the next day. There’s no exit fee and no hassle. If you’re on a fixed plan, you just need to wait until you’re in your “renewal window”, 53 days before the end of your contract – otherwise, you might have to pay an exit fee. Your new plan will then start when your current one ends. Read more about switching between OVO plans here.

OVO Drive is a single-rate energy plan. This means the cost of electricity remains the same around the clock. So you can power your home and car, day and night, without paying more at peak times.

Absolutely! Once you’ve signed up, you can get an EV charger installed by our partner ChargedEV. Find more info (and electrifying prices, exclusively for OVO members) check out our EV charging page.

OVO Drive Anytime will be exclusively available to OVO Drive members. But sit tight, we’re still working on the details right now – keep an eye out on ovoenergy.com for our big OVO Drive Anytime launch, happening later this summer.

No, sadly this will end with your EV Everywhere plan. You’ll be charged for your bp pulse account once your plan ends, unless you decide to cancel it.

We run a programme called I Dig Trees in partnership with a charity called The Conservation Volunteers (TCV). They’re experts at finding spaces across the UK for planting trees, especially urban spots, where the trees will make the biggest difference to local communities! TCV – along with an army of OVO volunteers – plant trees in places like local primary schools, retirement homes, colleges, and parks.

There’s no need for a torch and candles – your electricity and gas supply will continue as usual when you switch suppliers.

You don’t need to worry about contacting your old supplier to tell them you’re switching – we’ll take care of that for you.

Important to know

  1. 100% of the renewable electricity we sell is backed by renewable certificates (Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin certificates (REGOs)). See here for details on Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin certificates and how these work. A proportion of the electricity we sell is also purchased directly from renewable generators in the UK.
  2. Each year, OVO plants 1 tree for every member in partnership with the Woodland Trust. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, so tree-planting helps to slow down climate change.
  3. OVO's 2019 analysis of academic research into the effectiveness of feedback on energy consumption behaviours indicates that being able to monitor your energy usage by installing a smart meter and having access to energy insights information can lead to a reduction in energy use. The reduction in energy use results from the customer making changes to their habits by curtailing home energy use through actions such as optimising heating settings or switching lights off. The actual savings achieved will vary depending on individual energy use and the nature of changes made to a customer's energy habits.
  4. By switching to OVO Energy you could reduce your carbon footprint by up to 792kg of carbon per year. This is based on the carbon emissions caused in the production and consumption of the 100% renewable electricity OVO provides as standard, compared to the emissions caused by the production and consumption of UK grid average electricity. Average UK household energy consumption figures were sourced from BEIS (2019). The carbon emissions factors were calculated by the Carbon Trust.
  5. OVO is offering a £75 energy credit for OVO members who have entered into a lease agreement for an EV from Vanarama after being redirected from the OVO website (the Vanarama Energy Credit). This will be added to your OVO account balance to be used to reduce any amount that you may owe us in the future. The credit will be applied as a single £75 credit to your energy account 30 days after you take delivery of your EV. Terms and eligibility criteria apply. Please see here for full offer terms and conditions.
