Important information :

1.
New customers to Octopus Energy who purchase a VOLKSWAGEN electric vehicle and who set up an account for gas and/or electricity who sign up via the referral link provided by VOLKSWAGEN UK will be eligible for free miles in the form of £45 credit per fuel type on their energy account. To receive £90 credit, customers must switch both fuels to Octopus Energy. If only one account is switched, the customer will receive £45 credit. The credit shall be applied once the account is on supply and the first direct debit payment has been taken. If you qualify for more than one marketing incentive, Octopus reserves the right to give you just one incentive.   To benefit from the Octopus Go Green tariff, the customer must have a SMETS2 smart meter or a SecureTM branded SMETS1 meter that they have agreed to let Octopus receive half-hourly consumption data from. There are some instances where a smart meter installation is not possible, for example remote areas with poor mobile signal. Where smart meter installation is not possible, customers can sign up to an Octopus standard tariff and still receive the £45 credit per fuel type.  For the ID.3 Life 58kWh 204PS ‘Pro Performance’, at Octopus' Go Green tariff off-peak rate (7.5 p/kWh), £90 credit is equivalent to up to 5,000 miles. This is based on a usable battery capacity of 58 kWh and WLTP range of 260 miles giving an efficiency average of 0.22 kWh/mile. Efficiency differs depending on multiple variables, such as driving conditions and vehicle configuration.  Existing Octopus customers who joined Octopus directly can still avail this offer. However, if you joined via Octopus’ Refer a Friend scheme or through one of their partners, and have already received a joining reward, unfortunately, you're not eligible for a free miles reward. If you're a gas and electricity customer, and haven't received a joining reward previously, you'll receive a £90 credit. If you're only with Octopus for one fuel type, you'll receive £45 credit. Drop Octopus an email at existingevoffer@octoenergy.com to take the offer.Octopus Go is still a beta product and is subject to changes and tweaks as it is optimised and developed. Volkswagen UK reserves the right to withdraw the offer without notice
