Enjoy life with zero energy bills for at least five years, guaranteed.
THE GOLD STANDARD IN GREEN HOMES
Imagine living in a home where energy bills are a thing of the past. Where the heat from your underfloor heating, the light from your lamps, the fresh food from your fridge, and everything else that uses electricity costs you absolutely nothing to run.
Together with Octopus Energy, we’ve made this dream a reality. Building our homes with solar panels, home batteries, heat pumps and super-insulated walls and roofs, it really is possible to live free from energy bills.
Welcome to the next generation of sustainable living.
HOW ZERO BILLS WORKS
Your Zero Bills home is built with best-in-class energy efficiency, plus solar panels, heat pump, house battery and smart technology to help you live comfortably and carbon-free.
Working with our home hardware, Octopus’ tech platform, Kraken, balances the cost of drawing energy from the grid with the energy it feeds back in. The result: a home with no energy bills.

Octopus have included a ‘Fair Use Allowance’ in their Zero Bills plan. This is set at approximately double the expected household usage, so customers should only exceed this allowance if they have very high heating preferences.
For electricity used above the Fair Use Allowance, you will be billed at the Flexible Octopus unit rate, with billing done on an annual basis.
One day, we hope cars will be as efficient as our homes. Until then, they consume a lot of electricity. For this reason, EV charging is not included within the Zero Bills allowance, but will be billed separately at Intelligent Octopus tariff unit rates. The rest of your home’s energy needs remain free.
