A big thank you Hemo, if you do join.

If you're not already with Octopus, you'll first need to switch to its standard tariff. You can then join the Octopus Tracker waiting list.
To join Tracker. You will need a smart meter or be willing to get one.
Tracker Tariff is reopening on Saturday 1 July.

I joined the Tracker Tarrif last year and I've consistantly paid lower prices. It's saved me a considerable amount.
My switch is all but done , Octopus tell me it will be all sorted tomorrow within 48hrs. Shell who I was with have already acknowledged my leaving.

The tracker Tariff I have already applied for whether or not I'm one of the 50k to be accepted I will have to wait and see.

I have a smets 1 meter but not 100% sure if it will play with Octopus , the industry claim that tech should mean more older smets 1's should be come compatible saving the waste in costs and upgrades.
Now on the tracker rate which will take effect on the 7th , though will be back dated to start today.
The switch from Shell was very fast and efficient , excellent service from Octopus.
For those thinking of switching then the process was really excellent , another waiting list for the tracker rate should be available end of this month.

I applied to switch on Monday, Tuesday both Shell and Octopus emailed to say the process was well in hand and Wednesday I applied for the tracker tariff.

My old SSE Smets 1 meter it seems is ok and Octopus say it is working.
Hemo, thank you for the update. Good to hear it's all going smoothly.
Octopus Energy has been a Which Magazine recommended provider for six years in a row.
Sadly I don't take much credance in that which recommends, I prefer my own research.
