Renewing your contract

Find out how to instantly renew in My OVO.

How will I know when to renew my contract with OVO?

We’ll write to you 6 weeks before your contract is due to end. We’ll tell you our new prices and details on how to fix your energy plan with us again.

Our fixed plans usually provide best value for money, so it makes sense to take a few minutes and secure your energy prices for a set period of time.

How to renew your contract...

  • We’ll get in touch when it’s nearly time to renew, and let you know our latest prices. 
  • If you want to stay, you can renew in My OVO.

How do you work out my quote?

We take how much energy you used last year, multiple this by the unit rates and standing charges, add on the VAT to get your annual amount.

What happens if I don’t renew by the time my contract ends?

If you don’t refix, we’ll move you onto our variable rate tariff, Simpler Energy. Because it’s variable, unit prices and standing charges could go up or down depending on what’s happening on the wholesale market.

This means it can work out to be more expensive than fixed price plans. Rest assured, though, we’ll always give you at least 30 days’ notice about price changes, so you can choose to move back onto a fixed tariff.
