Hi guys and girls,
I'm from the north west. Although originally from Staffordshire. I've got more jobs too do than time to do them, like most parents!

Had no problems with ovo since joining and have saved myself around 15 hours over the past year in not going to top up! Thank you ovo, that's two rooms decorated with that saving 🆒

Great to meet you all. Hopefully we can help each other and offer hints and tips. Problems shared are, well no longer problems, but learning opportunities.

I'm a carer that makes jewellery sometimes .
I live with my daughter and a huge mutt ( yes I am talking about the dog )
I'm a PAYG customer .
Loving the spring weather and hoping to get out and about a bit

Afternoon all!

Michael here, living up in Newcastle upon Tyne, working for the NHS to support medical types with their IT issues!

Like single malt whisky, mountain bikes, decent food, and the excellent micro brewery that's about 138 seconds walk from my front door! Just need to add some bio info to the profile on here now... wonder if I could find anyone working in IT to help?!

Married to the current Mrs Michael, who drives a nice EV for which Ovo currently supply electricity to keep us gliding around in.

Oh, and "Introduce Yourself" by Faith No More is one of the greatest pieces of music ever, so this is me introducing myself!

PS. I use exclamation marks a bit too much!


Welcome to the forum, mjcharlton71!

I have to say, I love that you have a micro brewery that’s only 138 seconds from your house. 🆒 - I’m not such a huge fan of whiskey though!

Fab to hear that Mrs Michael works for us and I’ll have to check out that song as I’ve not heard it before. Looking forward to seeing you getting stuck in on the forum!

This is an intro from Alkj, a new user who has asked me to share this with you:

I have lived in Aberystwyth for 40 plus years, my professional interests were in Aquatic microbiology and environment-with a supporters interest in Welsh rugby. I like the renewable element of OVO's energy supply as long as it is coupled with reasonable ongoing unit costs that my budget can support.

Hi Everyone,

My name's Pete Shepherd, from Leeds, and we've been with OVO for a few years now.

We've recently installed solar panels, so we're selling electricity as well as buying it, which is a nice feeling!

We've also smart meter users, and like them a lot.

Best wishes,
Pete

Welcome to the forum @Bigmh and thank you for your introduction 🙂 it's a pleasure to meet you!

It's wonderful to hear you're so active and up to date with technology which you enjoy using. Do you have a favourite puzzle?

Do you have any niggling questions you want to ask?

Have a wonderful weekend

Welcome to the OVO Forum, @Bigmh :$

I've actually moved your comment to the 'Introduce yourself' topic, so other users can learn a bit more about you. Have a good look around and I'm looking forward to you getting involved!

Yes I echo @Tim_OVO in welcoming you to the forum @Bigmh!

Great to see so many of you introducing yourselves on this topic. So good to get to know more about you guys.

I meant to ask @mjcharlton71 which EV do you have? What's it actually like to drive, how often do you have to charge it?

Hi @rafealsivar Welcome to our forum!

Make sure you add a profile picture and update your profile so we can all get to know you better.

If you have a question about OVO or your energy, make sure you use the search bar to see if its something another user has already asked, we have a lot of conversations and questions already on the forum, so you may well find what you are looking for.

The forum is a space for our users to help each other. If when you are looking around you see a user has posted a question or comment and you feel you can help, or would like to give your opinion, then get posting.

Myself and the moderators are also around if you need us. Our superusers @Aadil and @Mattj3135 are also on hand if you need anything.

Hope this helps, we hope you enjoy being part of our forum family and look forward to seeing you getting involved. :)

Hi all,
I have just joined the forum and am looking forward to reading all the comments. I have been with OVO now for 3 years and have had no problems at all, just good service. I am now doing my favorite thing, being retired after working for 50 years. Now living close to Durham. Spent most of my working life in South Africa and 3 years after retiring moved back to the UK Originally from Scotland.
Regards to all

Ronnie
