Octopus Energy Help & FAQs

Is the rate at which I’m buying energy from the grid the same rate as what I sell back?

No, when you get energy from the grid, you’re incurring transmission and subscription fees and taxes. When you sell that energy back, you aren’t incurring any additional charges so what the wholesale market rate is, is what you get. You can monitor real-time market rates on ERCOT’s dashboard. Keep in mind, the prices are in MWh, so you’ll need to divide by 1,000 to get the kWh.
