    If Rebecca is the one that reads this you might remember me from the ' Power Payback ' threads.

    Basically I used to be homeless and living rough on the streets, still broke and unemployed. However am in a relevantly good place now.
    My electric usage is usually below 1kW a day, so only getting about 10p back each Power Payback :)

    This might sound a bit of a moan, but bear with me.

    I volunteer for a CIC, trying to help hospicies and the homeless. I got my £75 credit for warm house ... I'm a cold weather person anyway. According to my smart meter it means about 90 days of credit.

    You have a system to take a portion of what you add to your meter to a ' savings ' account. How about a ' donate ' option ?
    For example I got that £75 credit, I'd like an option to donate £5 of that to an ' emergency ' fund run by Utilita that goes towards supporting people in real need if that makes sense ?

    Anyway, all the best.

    @Trikky2 Hi there Richard,

    I am so pleased to hear that you are doing well and it's a delight to hear from you 🤗

    That is a really great idea. I will take this away to our Utilita Giving Team! I will stay in touch with what they say and how feasible the would be. I know we do lots to make it as easy as possible for our customers to donate - and I think this has been considered before, but it is no doubt a great idea!

    I will be in touch in due course 🤗
