That's definitely the way to go when the solar isn't performing, I'd be doing the same If my smart meter could get a communication connection!

 I don't know if Agile or Go tariff is best. Also do not have a DNO yet, do I need it to start feeding power ?
 I now have my PV installation in and working, Octopus have me on the priority list for a Smart meter so I can start getting paid for any excess (not much this time of year)

If you want to get paid for the excess, I presume you mean through Octopus "Outgoing", then you cannot be on Octopus "Go", but you can be on the "Agile" tariff.

You also need an MCS certificate and DNO notification/response.
