All defined terms in our Core Terms will have the same meaning when used in these Terms unless otherwise stated.

1.1 Switch to OVO during the Offer Period and, provided you meet the Eligibility Criteria, you'll receive a total credit of £50 towards your energy charges. This will be applied as a credit to your electricity account in instalments as follows:

  • An initial credit of £25, which will be applied to your account within 30 calendar days of you switching to OVO Energy; and

  • A credit of £25 in the third month after you join (provided that you continue to meet the Eligibility Criteria).

    1.2 The credit will show as "welcome reward" on your account statements or communications.

    1.4 The Offer will run between 26 January 2023 and 31 March 2023 inclusive or until we have reached 15,000 customers, whichever is soonest (the Offer Period).

2.1 The Offer is only available to customers who meet each of the following eligibility criteria (Eligibility Criteria):

  • You must pay your bills by Direct Debit or Pay on Demand.

    Customers who take a gas-only supply with us will not be eligible for the Offer.

  • You must switch to OVO Energy within the Offer Period and remain on supply with OVO for at least 3 months to get the full Welcome Reward.
    You can only claim this Offer once. You won’t be eligible for the Offer again if you claim the Offer then switch away from OVO and switch back again later during the Offer period.

  • This Offer is personal to you and you cannot transfer it to another person.
    You must comply with the Core Terms. If at any time you fail to meet the Eligibility Criteria we reserve the right to remove the Offer and you will no longer be eligible to receive the Welcome Reward.

How is the welcome reward applied?

3.1 The Offer is applied as 2 credits directly to your new OVO Energy account. There is no cash alternative.

Do I need to do anything to receive my welcome reward?

3.2 You do not need to do anything to activate the payment of the credits; your account will be automatically credited. You will receive the first credit within 30 days and the second credit by the end of the third month you are with us.

  1. The welcome reward offer will end on 31 March 2023, or when 15,000 customers have switched over, whichever is sooner.

  2. OVO Energy plants 1 million trees across the UK each year with its tree planting partners, The Conservation Volunteers and the Woodland Trust. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, so planting trees helps to slow down climate change.

  3. OVO is made up of the energy suppliers SSE Energy Services, OVO Energy and Boost. Together, we power over 4 million UK homes with energy. This figure is correct as of 22 January 2023.
