I'm interested, what's the deal?


We are busy planning another VIP day for our forum users, so this is your chance to come see us in person and get to experience OVO from the inside.

We have an action packed day planned. We’ve secured time from some of our key Product teams, ready to share with you our vision and products and more importantly get feedback direct from you guys on what we can do better or what new ideas you have to make OVO even better!!

Sounds great, when is it?


Provisional dates we are looking at are Monday 17th June or Friday 21st June. We will be starting around 10am, and aim to have you flying down the slide (yes, its attached to the Treehouse….!) and out the door by 4pm, having had a brilliant day and feeling even more connected to the OVO Community.

I want to come, how do I sign up?


If you would like to join us, we’d love to meet you. Simply comment below with the date you would be able to come and see us (we’ll even throw in lunch)...! We’ll be in touch to confirm the date and all the details of the day once we have final numbers.

I'm worried I'll miss out....


Spaces are limited, so get commenting asap to register your interest.

Starting to get a little bit excited about this VIP day!

We have some EV experts who are coming, @UC Bear @NoPoke @Leo Moran (Leo what's your friends username, who you're coming down with, I want to tag them!), so I think some time with @Hari_OVO might be on the cards.....(!)

Fancy joining us (no need to have an EV don't worry!) @Gif @Kat Leaf @Somerpark @jdenver @jewelie @Mw2870 🕵🏽

Wish there was a dislike button for this one...... 😥 But we will run another event again in the future, so hopefully you'll be able to make that one.

@Leo Moran we didn't know you and @aaronr were friends, how cool!! Glad you are both able to make it!

@Transparent looking forward to seeing how you fedex lunch to @ITGeek123 🤣😂😆

@swakeman @EverythingNeedsAUserName You guys coming too??

Darran
Looks a giggle but not for me, can't make it. Seems a really great idea though. Have fun, all that go! 🙂

Ah no worries @jewelie ! Maybe next time!! We'll be sure to keep you posted when we run the next one!

We will be updating you all on the day, sharing stories, photos etc so you can see what we got up too!!

If @ITGeek123 isn't going to be there, the most he'll get out of me is a WhatsApp photo of the crayfish sandwich he could've been enjoying!

For those who are undecided about whether to commit to this day, can I point out:

a. when @Tim_OVO mentioned @Hari_OVO above, it is Hari who heads up the team within the Kaluza Division who are developing the EV Chargers and the forthcoming Home Storage Battery.

b. there are major changes about to happen to the electricity supply system in Britain. The DNO's like Western Power Distribution and UK Power Networks are to become DSO's whereby they will support Aggregators who actually administer the final stage of distribution. This is an opportunity for community involvement, buying in energy and supplementing it with that produced and stored locally.

The SMETS2 meters are the first part of this strategy being implemented. So I hope we will be able to hear how OVO is responding to these forthcoming changes.

So there's a lot more to this VIP day than simply enjoying the vol-au-vents that @Tim_OVO and @Darran_OVO have been learning to make over the past month 🎂

That would be amazing @BrizzleLass, it's looking more likely to be the Friday to be honest due to others availability, but will confirm asap!

Be good to catch up, we have a number of sessions planned through the day, so will be good to get you involved!!

Milk & one sugar, @Leo Moran? How unusual!

there are any kind of streamming?

There won't be this time around, but we still have spaces if you are able to join us on the 17th?

If you'd like to come along, just reply to this message!!

Streaming is a good shout, definitely food for thought next time. We will be putting together a summary after the event to share on the forum so watch out for that.
