Hi firsttango,

We have been ' switched' to Octopus Energy in UK , they aquired Bulb Energy ...........so early days for any long term info.

Comparing Tarifas of my current Spanish supplier CHC energia with the Octopus .es they seem very competitive.

I'll be changing over ASAP

How do they compare with your current supplier............ :?:

They seem to be very very competitive compared with my current suppplier Endesa, so will definitely be looking to switch. Been in U.K for last 14 months and now back home looking to change up a few things. Did use Octopus in U.K and was pleased but wanted to get any info on their Spanish operation.

I have been with Octopus in the Uk for the past 15yrs, they used to give cash back to their loyal customers at the end of each year.I always do price comparisons when my fixed deals came to an end but i never found one more competitivly priced than Octopus...Never had any problems and my online account with them is simple, straight forward and very easy to navigate.

I switched to Imagina Energy over a year ago. Their current prices, like many others, have come down, but not as low as my current fixed 3 year contract.

I used to be on a double tarif contract, but the new triple split is nowhere near as economical as the 2 way deal used to be.

The current Imagina single tarif is cheaper than Octopus.

I have switched supplier many times and my annual bill is now the same as it was 10 years ago so I must be doing something right!

Hi firsttango,

"Enrique how are you finding them?".......... very good. Had a slight glitch when Monthly Bill stopped but was quickly sorted in two days from sending them an email, unlike CHC who took Months to sort out Billing.

Currently getting Mains cables upgraded so we can export to the Grid.... Will update on this when completed.
