OVO Energy

OVO started as an idea around the kitchen table. A couple of friends listing what they wanted from their energy supplier, but weren’t getting. Things like fair pricing. Great service. Clear and simple information. Technology to make managing your energy easier. And above all, honesty and openness. Six years and 500,000 happy customers later, we’re proud of what we’ve achieved. But there’s plenty more to be done. We may have outgrown the kitchen table. But we’re still working to make energy as effortless, simple and inexpensive as possible.
