    Data at your fingertips

    With our handy, hassle-free app, you track what's happening at a glance.

    Combining Intelligent Octopus Flux with a Solar PV and Battery Storage system powered by GivEnergy allows customers to automatically receive the best rates for both the power they use (import) and the power they sell back (export) to the grid.

    Intelligent Octopus Flux with GivEnergy Battery Storage - How does it work?

    Intelligent Octopus Flux is a smart import and export tariff optimised to give you the best rates for consuming and selling your energy.

    Compared to our clever-but-not-quite-as-smart Flux tariff, Intelligent customers could save £100 or more each year.

    ‘Intelligent Octopus Flux’ (IOF) offers the same rate for both importing and exporting electricity, with a 21-hour off peak window priced 10% below Octopus Energy’s standard variable tariff ‘Flexible Octopus’ and a three-hour ‘peak’ window between 4pm and 7pm*.

    This next generation tariff is powered by Kraken, Octopus’ proprietary tech platform, and optimises your GivEnergy battery storage and solar panels to better use green electrons when they are abundant and cheap.


    Import rates are even lower than standard Flux. We’ll make sure you battery charges when the price is lowest and the grid is greenest.

    A peak rate between 16:00 - 19:00, our optimum time to discharge your battery and export surplus energy back to the grid, don’t worry we’ll take care of this.

    Intelligent Octopus Flux FAQ

    Intelligent Octopus Flux is a beta product. Some things may not work the first time, and installations and processes may take longer than we'd like. Third party tech like In-home Displays won't always work, and on occasion data issues with smart meters can take significant time to fix or prevent things from working at all.

    If you're cool with this, work with us to make world-changing energy tariffs a reality. You will always be able to switch to a fairly priced standard tariff at any time.
