Like most good ideas, Ovo was created to solve a problem.
Our founder, Stephen Fitzpatrick, was so fed up dealing with large energy companies with complicated, expensive and confusing tariffs he decided to start his own.
A big step. Especially as Stephen’s background wasn’t in the energy business. But that meant he didn’t start with any preconception of how things are ‘normally’ done. Just a vision on how things ‘should’ be done.
In Stephen’s words: “I just couldn’t understand why the energy business was so complex and service so poor. Everyone kept telling me it wouldn’t be possible for someone outside of the industry to come in and make energy cheaper, greener and simpler. I’m very pleased to have proved them wrong!”
It’s because Stephen was thinking like a customer that the business is built around the idea of making your life as simple as possible. That’s what makes dealing with us so much easier… and nicer.
With Ovo everything is more straightforward and our UK based customer service team are always on hand to help. We’re open and honest and we do everything we can to keep our prices low, while still offering more renewable energy in our standard tariff than other energy providers.
It’s this fresh new approach that has made Ovo a great success. News about the way we do business has travelled well too. In fact, we’re now the fastest growing energy company in the UK.
We ensure that we stay cheaper, greener and simpler by employing seriously smart people, cutting edge technology and putting you first with every decision we make. We like to fill our customers’ homes with cheaper and greener energy, and every time they deal with us, fill their day with a little positive energy too.
If you like the sound of that, then let us make your life simpler too. Switching is easy…
Cheaper. Greener. Simpler.
We appreciate that switching to a new energy company can be a little daunting and that you’ll want to know as much about us as possible before committing. We’ve spent lots of time scratching our heads and writing a list of what the ideal energy company would be like; what they’d promise, what they’d do and what they’d not do – in short, what Ovo should be like.
We’d love you to experience our promises for yourself.
