OVO Energy Electricity

They’ve come a long way from the UK and are ready to shake up the way Aussies pay for their electricity - introducing OVO Energy, the retailer that’s all for sustainable and affordable electricity.

Who is OVO Energy?

Operating since 2009 in the UK, OVO Energy have officially hit Aussie shores and are ready to offer customers an alternative way to think about their electricity bills. Simplicity, affordability and innovation are all part of the OVO Energy game, not to mention their aim of encouraging sustainable electricity solutions.

OVO Energy electricity plans and packages

Many Aussies just want an electricity plan that not only ticks all the boxes, but is also hassle-free. OVO Energy are all for keeping things simple, which is why they only offer one electricity market offer, called ‘The One Plan’ (yes, really), but there’s also a ‘Basic Standing Offer’ plan available. 

Under The One Plan, customers will have their electricity supplied on a single rate tariff of 24.42c/kWh, plus a the daily supply charge of 79.64c per day under the Ausgrid distribution network. Those within the Endeavour Energy distribution network, the usage charge is 24.70c/kWh and a daily supply charge of 68.75 cents a day. 

But when it comes to paying your electricity bill, OVO Energy does things a little differently. OVO Energy spread out the estimated annual cost of your electricity bill into 12 monthly installments, similar to bill smoothing. Your estimated annual electricity cost is based on either the size of your home or your previous electricity usage. 

Getting to the good stuff, if you use less than your estimated electricity usage, OVO Energy will reward you with a credit on your bill. And so long as you stay in credit with your plan, you’ll earn 3.00% interest on the balance! In addition to that, OVO Energy will also include 10% GreenPower for your electricity for free - this can be increased to 100% for an extra $29 a month. 

However, while you won’t be charged an exit fee if you decide to opt out of your plan, there is a  $41.58 connection fee, $41.58 disconnection fee and $83.72 reconnection fee to consider.

Switching and moving with OVO Energy

If you’re interested in making the switch to OVO Energy, you’ll be happy to know that switching is as easy as pie. According to OVO Energy, signing up takes less than three minutes! You’ll then need to wait for your direct debit to be set up - once that’s done, OVO Energy will get your opening meter reading and then you’re ready to start! 

But since OVO Energy is just getting started in the Aussie market, there is no information as of yet about how customers can move homes with the retailer.

    Good energy deal

    Just recently moved to OVO from energy Australia for electricity due to a better deal. Easy to set up and was connect with OVO within a couple of days. They took care of the transfer. Have an app with real time access to usage. Also on a plan where I get 3 hours free electricity at day which I have found very useful.

    Competitive prices and good customer service

    I changed to OVO energy when they were able to offer me a better deal from my previous provider. I have been satisfied with the price of energy costs , which is a good thing when everyone is really feeling the rise of energy costs lately. Bills are directly debited and the process has been easy.

    Easy sign up with no lock ins

    I signed up for Ovo as their rates were meant to be better, but to be honest I’ve found it hard to tell yet as I’m direct debited each month plus receive a bill, so I’ve got to sit down and work through it to properly compare to my previous electricity. The sign up process is easy enough, and with no lock in contracts or exit fees it was more appealing to give them a go. I haven’t had to phone Ovo yet so can’t comment on customer service over the phone.

    OVO was the best deal when I switched.

    I changed to OVO recently to get a better deal on electricity. At the time OVO seemed the best but I am always looking to do better. If another supplier was to offer a better deal with an incentive then I would likely take it up.
