Alexa, ask Octopus: when is electricity cheapest today?


Octopus Energy wanted to build innovative smart home solution to inform consumers what the energy price is at a given moment.

That solution is a part of Octopus Agile; a variable electricity tariff solution perfect for electric vehicles, storage heaters, or anyone who can shift their electricity use outside of the 4pm – 7pm peak.


What we deliverd

We built the Octopus Agile Alexa skill to customers to ask Alexa when electricity will cheapest in the next 24 hours, and what the price is now. It can also tell a customer how “green” the energy is.

All this information is delivered by Alexa voice and Alexa screen.

So, if you have Electric car and want to charge it, you can do it the smart way; and wait for the electricity price to be lowest to plug it in.
