Empower your home battery with Octo GridBoost

Get $40/mo. + electricity buyback at the real-time price

Octo GridBoost is our home battery program that empowers homeowners to use their battery to its full potential- and we’ll even pay you $40 a month ($480 annually) to do it. If this sounds too good to be true, it’s not. Batteries are a key component to building grid resilience and it can’t be done without you. 

Octo GridBoost is part of ERCOT’s program to boost Texas’ grid stability and provide reliable, renewable power to all- reducing the likelihood of grid failure.

How does it work? 

It’s rather simple, and we’ll do all the heavy lifting. When you connect your battery to our Octo GridBoost, we'll manage your battery on your behalf, and export energy generated directly to the grid when it’s needed. You don’t need to do anything and we’ll always keep your battery’s charge above 20%. 

☝️You will always have control of your battery and can opt out at any time. However, if you choose to opt out you will lose your $40 monthly credit. 

How do you get paid?

When you enroll in Octo GridBoost, you get money two ways: 

1️⃣ $40 monthly bill credit (You will need to be enrolled in an Octopus Energy plan) 

2️⃣ Buyback credits with no cap or limit at the real-time price 

Is my battery eligible for Octo GridBoost?

As of April 2023, only Enphase batteries are eligible for our program, but we’re quickly expanding our inventory to include more batteries. If you’d like your home battery brand to be added, please fill out this form and we’ll add it to our list! (If it’s not already on there.)
