Tell me about OVO…
This is our favourite question as we think there is something extra special about OVO… Where do we start? Once upon a time, in 2009 there was a company called OVO. This company was no ordinary company; it was set up to change the world (the world of Energy) and make life simpler for every single one of its customers. Time has flown and how OVOI has grown from its humble beginnings, born at a barn in the Cotswolds where every conversation was held around the kitchen table, to the six year old, 1100 strong team we are today. We’re a proud, challenger brand that never settles for second best. Some people say "the sky’s the limit’, but for OVO, there is no limit. Expect the unexpected and make the impossible; possible… welcome to OVO Energy.
We’re in the business of building a different kind of Energy Company, one where not only our customers benefit from better service and opportunity but our people do too. OVO was set up to always find a better way and challenge the status quo. We believe in simplicity, transparency and treating people and the planet fairly. But we also believe that attracting and keeping the best talent is key to our bright future, so that’s why our people will always get a chance to share in our success. OVO is on track to have one million happy customers by 2017!
We currently install smart meters into over 10,000 of our customers homes every month and will more than double this over the next year. We have the highest percentage of our customers with a smart meter in the UK and an award winning PAYG+ proposition.
