Octopus Energy Help & FAQs

How does our buyback rate work?

We credit your excess solar energy at the Texas wholesale rate. This means that whatever the wholesale rate is at your time of export real-time, is the price we pay you for your excess solar energy. This rate changes every 15 minutes depending on the market. To take advantage of solar buyback credits, it’s imperative that you watch grid conditions so you’re not using more than what you’re exporting.
