Formed in 2003, Utilita is an independent gas and electricity supplier which specialises in prepayment energy using the newest smart meter technology available today. Today it provides energy to around 800,000 households.
As of July 2023, Utilita has a TrustPilot score of 4.2 from over 84,000 reviews. Customer service seems particularly good, which is positive given that, because it's usually the most vulnerable customers who have prepayment energy, good assistance is especially important.
Utilita's app is available on the Apple Store and on Google Play. It allows customers to track their usage, make payments, get emergency help, pay off debts, move credit between meters and get energy advice, alongside may other features.
Yes - Utilita encourages customers to embrace technology as much as possible, and the app works best when it's connected to a smart meter. Customers can therefore get a smart meter with Utilita for free, though there may be a wait for an appointment.
Utilita is part of the ECO scheme, so vulnerable customers can get money off energy efficiency products like new boilers and solar panels.
