Octopus: peculiar tariff display

Options
Today, I should be paying 27.86 p/kWh on Flexible Octopus. The website indicates 51.57p per kWh. Where does this figure come from?

I have osteoarthritis in my hands so I speak my messages into a microphone using Dragon. Some people make "typos" but I often make "speakos".

    That's the capped rate for someone paying by DD in the Midlands, under the now-redundant October Ofgem cap.
    Seems like a bug in their website software to me. See what it says later or tomorrow, and (if you really want to be sure ) when you're billed for today, check the rate applied.

    Ours is also showing the same - paying by DD in the Midlands.  Will see if it irons itself out tomorrow for the meter readings and check the next bill...

    Don't know if relevant, but, the email from Octopus includes the following:


    Their systems updating is a work in progress, causing errors?

    Thank you. Yes, I am in the Midlands, so that makes sense.
