Who are Octopus Energy?
Octopus Energy is a gas and electricity provider that specialises in renewable energy.
It is the largest investor in solar farms in the UK and built its own solar farm in 2011. Octopus Energy also invests in wind generation, energy through the anaerobic digestion of plants, and rapid response gas generation.
Octopus Energy's other green credentials include offering 100% renewable electricity and carbon offsetting for its gas tariffs.
Please note: As with all 'green' energy deals of this nature, the actual gas and/or electricity provided to the user's home is the same as for any other user on a non-green tariff. However, green energy companies commit to sourcing an equivalent amount of environmentally-friendly energy as used by their customers, and feeding this into the supply network.
