Yes, it is a flexible tariff. This means the unit rate and standing charges can rise and fall with wholesale energy prices. There's no exit fees or tie-ins, so if Octopus Flux doesn't work for you, you're free to switch tariffs or change suppliers with no penalties at any time.

3.What happens if the flexible tariff rates change?

Octopus Flux adapts to the dynamic energy market. As Octopus' flexible tariffs evolve, Flux pricing will most likely change. However, transparency remains crucial. All Octopus Flux customers will receive prompt notifications regarding any upcoming adjustments, guaranteeing no unexpected changes. Moreover, the ability to switch tariffs or providers at any time grants users unparalleled flexibility without incurring exit fees or commitments.

4.Is there an export limit?

Octopus Flux does not set a cap on the export rate or the total monthly electricity export. However, the design of your solar system may impose limitations. Solar systems are engineered with the breaker's limit in mind, which usually ranges between 40 and 100 amps. This design prevents overloading, ensuring safety and efficiency.

5.If I switch to Octopus Flux, what will happen to my FiT generation contract?

When you switch to Octopus Flux, your FiT (Feed-in Tariff) generation contract will remain unchanged, guaranteeing consistent payments for energy generation. However, there will be a slight adjustment in the 'deemed export' payments. Users will need to opt-out of these and, in return, will benefit from the Octopus Flux export rate. This rate is determined based on the actual kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy exported, using real-time data from your smart meter.

6Do seasonal changes or daylight savings impact the super cheap period?

Do seasonal changes or daylight savings impact the super cheap period? Your Octopus Flux rates remain unaffected by seasonal changes and daylight savings. The super cheap period consistently spans from 02:00 – 05:00 UK local time, and the peak period from 16:00 – 19:00 UK local time, throughout the year. Although your In-Home Display may display occasional variations, rest assured that the billing system from Octopus Energy is equipped to accommodate such external factors, ensuring the accuracy of your bills.

7.Do I need a smart meter?
