Well since our energy supplier went belly up along with 19 other energy suppliers Ofgem have allocated us a new supplier, Octopus energy, I'm still waiting for them to sort us out with an online account but as there were over 500K who have migrated across to them I dare say it will take a little while The kW/h electricity rate is now higher than the contract we were on before with our previous energy company but it's not too bad, I charged the MG ZS EV overnight & this morning putting 38Kw's in (The MG ZS EV has a useable capacity is 42.5kWhs out of 44.5kWhs) which cost £6.46 for three quarters of a "tank" of electrons A bit more than the 5p overnight cheap rate from 00:00 to 04:00 I was paying before but still cheap as chips for our needs.

I'll see what other tariffs they have available when we get our account.

That's a better tariff than I'll be on with Octopus from what I've seen. Cheers Simondi

Well the Wi-Fi tablet that came with the Electricity & Gas smart meters came back to life today & we've been put on the Octopus Flexible E tariff of 19.95p/kWh, Just that one rate throughout
I logged into the new Octopus account tonight & sent today's gas & electricity meter readings but it Bizarrely says we don't have a DD account set up despite them taking out a payment at the beginning of the month Sounds like par for the course up to now

I think Octopus are still doing their 'Go Faster' tariff however you have to e-mail them to request it as it's not on their website. Currently I'm paying 14p peak and then from 20:30Hrs to 01:30Hrs I pay 5p. From what I've read the 5p rate is still the same however peak is now 24p for new customers.

I'll have to get my thinking cap on when this is sorted out, I could do with a cheap rate at certain times for charging the car albeit not very often with our usage but certainly for the washing machine & tumble drier which never seems to be off Octopus says I have to wait until the final bill from our last energy supplier comes through to see if we're in credit or debit or need to up our monthly DD.

If you can 'load shift' into the cheap rate that Go is great. We now run the dishwasher, washing machine and tumbler after 20:30 and we're also now using the immersion for hot water in the evening because it works out cheaper then oil.

My neighbour has just bought an MG5 and is waiting to get changed onto a cheap tariff so in the mean time I'm letting him use my outside socket to also charge on the 5p rate so we're really maxing it out!

Well the AEB (autonomous emergency braking) got a work out this morning on my trip to the local hospital with clowns failing to stop at give way side roads THREE TIMES Is there something in the water lately or is it silly season all the time now?


The MG ZS EV shuddered to a stop all on it's own without me going anywhere near the brake pedal

I knew there was a good reason for not driving in rush hour traffic

The new 7kW MG chargers available in Australia are pretty snazzy I've not seen them on the MG UK site though
