VCharge is an energy technology company that’s recently joined the OVO family. The whizzy-sounding ‘VCharge Dynamos’ are just gadgets that we attach to your storage heaters to make them ‘smarter’.
We’re always looking for smart ways to help our customers save money, and gain more control over their energy. That’s why we bought VCharge, and it’s why we’re really excited to offer you this amazing service for free. You can find out more information here.
If you’re eligible you need to be able to answer ‘yes’ to the following statements:
VCharge is free of charge for customers who receive their electricity (and gas) from OVO Energy. All the costs are detailed in the VCharge contract that you receive when you sign up. Our VCharge contracts are 2 years, which might sound like a long time, but you’ll get a 14-day cooling-off period if you change your mind.
VCharge helps you heat your home more efficiently by making your storage heaters smarter. So you have ultimate control over when you want your home to be warm. You’re unlikely to spend money on extra heating (like expensive plug-in heaters), because VCharge will keep you cosy at the right times. And it even ‘optimises’ your heaters when they charge, reducing your energy bills even further.
One of our fully qualified electricians will wire the VCharge Dynamos onto the power cable attached to your storage heater.
With VCharge we change the number of hours of off-peak electricity that are available to you to ensure the VCharge Dynamos, which only tell the storage heater to charge during off peak hours, can meet your comfort preferences. It will not affect your current peak or off-peak unit rates or standing charges.
At the moment, VCharge doesn’t work with 3-phase meter setups. But register your interest with us and we’ll let you know when this changes.
*Available to all OVO Energy customers with internet connection, and a smart meter from OVO. VCharge Heat installation is subject to engineer availability in your area, and your property meeting the installation criteria for smart meters and the VCharge Dynamo.
