Hmmm..  I just realised that I've ended up with Octopus by default as they've just acquired Co-op energy, who had previously acquired UK Power and Flow Energy. 

So, how could i utilise their Agile tarrif,  is there a system available to trigger devices capable of storing the cheap energy eg. storage heating, water heating, battery storage?

Seems to be a huge potential here if such a system could be allied with a short term weather forecast to predict likley energy demand in the next 24H.

Agile will at a minimum send you text messages to tell you what the pricing is going to be so you get direct reminiders/instructions that it might be a good idea to turn on the tumble dryer at 3am.
Octopus has made its API open to people so you can develop your own apps to control smart devices in response to Octopus pricing data using If This Then That.
If you have an EV, I think you can make smart chargers like Zappi and/or the Ohme Smart cable work to automatically charge your car when its cheap.

I'm impressed that Octopus really seem to be getting stuck in.

I was a bit bored until i found this

"Unfortunately, we do not yet support solar integrations, but we are working on it."

Imagine if they could take notice of solar and import/export house flows as well !

one question on this

I am still with SSE for my exports and have been since day 1

The octupus outgoing carrot  ... is the flat rate being higher than I currently make

"As the FiT Export rate is now 5.38pence and our flat rate is 5.5pence"

It doesnt look much of a carrot and trouble is what is to stop them trimming that down  at some future point ?

One would 'assume' that Octopus would also increase there rate in line with the FIT rate.  It wouldn't make any sense to fall behind the FIT rate.

Also, the number one differential between FIT and Octopus is deemed 50%.
FIT is Deemed 50%
Octopus is actual export...... so if you don't use much of what you generate there is something to consider there.

The latest fruits of my coding labour is a new Twitter account (@energystatsuk) that tweets out and graphs the next days Octopus Agile tariff data each evening.

https://twitter.com/energystatsuk

Its work in progress, so if anyone has any thoughts or comments please let me know.
