I'm staying with OVO

I'm very happy with the OVO website both for clarity and ease of use. I find the Green Energy tips useful. Pricing has been fair and competitive. No problems have been encountered for a considerable period of time . I would not contemplate changing providers.

I renewed with OVO Energy as I appreciate the values of the company, the fact that it cares about the planet and plants trees each year on behalf of its customers. The staff I've spoken to over the years have always been helpful and friendly. If you are thinking of joining, I highly recommend OVO Energy. Thank you.

I have always found OVO to be a fair company, and I like their way they manage everything on line and are eco friendly. Their prices are also better than most of the companies I have compared them with.

Satisfied customer

I realise that this is not a good time to be reviewing an energy company after the explosive prices that have hit our pockets recently! However, I've been with Ovo for a few years now and have found them to have really good customer service with very polite, helpful and friendly staff.

I think this is a very well run company. I was persuaded to install a smart meter for free, and now get a monthly report on usage, and submitting readings is no longer necessary. Also very good breakdown on what the energy is going on, and other useful information re the environment . For example if you run your appliances after 9pm, like dishwasher, the National Grid is off peak, and the energy used will be from renewables rather than fossil fuels. This company appears to be trying to continously improve,and communicates regularly, and has taken over other smaller companies who have not been able to weather the recent energy cost increases. If you manage your account online its painless to deal with.

Energy working.

When we moved to our current location we plumped for OVO as our energy supplier. We were looking for a company which would give us good quality service. OVO has been right on throughout the years we have been here and we are now three years plus users on their five percent deal on current credit balance. They keep close tabs on consumption and projected balance and have very recently added a new monthly payment to take account of upcoming increases due in April 2022. We use as little energy as possible. OVO are fine for us.

Feels safe

We joined OVO several years ago. Their website was clear and user friendly compared to some other power companies. I like the fact that they pay interest on your money, more perhaps in the summer when you may have cash in hand. Fixed plans and green options are available. We are staying!

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 29.7p/kWh would cost just over £15.44. The ZOE has a 245 mile range, which means you’d be paying just 6.3p 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 29.7p/kWh, a typical vehicle will cost around 7.4p for every mile you drive. As an example, if you do 8000 miles a year, that'll be just £592 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 a smart meter once you’ve signed up, you can book one in your online account 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 1 tonne 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.
  6. The offer is for ‘5,000 Free Green Miles’, for customers who sign up to the OVO Drive energy plan. This will be delivered via a £30.93 credit being applied to your OVO Energy account each month for the first 12 months of your contract, up to a maximum total credit of £371.25. £371.25 credit equates to 5,000 free miles of electric driving for customers charging on the OVO Drive plan. The £371.25 (£30.93 per month for 12 months) is a fixed amount and will not be adjusted over the course of the offer period. A 2020 MINI Electric has an efficiency of 4.0 miles/kWh as per WLTP testing. Find out more about WLTP here(opens in new window). 5,000 miles equates to 1250kWh of energy. £371.25 can purchase 1250kWh of energy using an assumed electricity unit rate of 29.7p/kWh, the average of regional prices on the OVO Drive Plan, as of 27/10/2021..
