By now, you’ll have read or heard about the global energy crisis. Now, more than ever, we want to help you reduce your energy usage and, in turn, save money – plus help the environment too.
This has been our mission since launching in 2003.
Taking inspiration from the then government’s Energy White Paper, which highlighted fuel poverty, climate change, energy security and an ageing energy infrastructure as the four big issues facing the sector, our founder and CEO Bill Bullen built Utilita with these issues in mind.
“We realised that helping customers save energy when it was cost-effective to do so was going to be a good thing, so we set up an energy business that actually helped households use less energy,” says Bill. “Hence our mantra: The greenest and cheapest energy is the energy you don’t use.”
Now, we’re redoubling our efforts to help our customers save as much energy (and money) as we possibly can – and that is where you come in!
So, how can we help you make each pound of your energy spend go further?
Here, we explain just a few ways we can help…
Your Smart Score is a measurement of how energy efficient you are, based on how you use energy at home. Improve your score with tips and advice for each of your energy categories - and save money.
All you need to do is download the My Utilita app (if you haven’t already)!

Give us regular meter reading
Are you a credit customer paying by direct debit/bills? It’s vital to give us regular meter reads to ensure your bills are not estimated and that you only pay for the energy you use. You could be paying more than you need to be, and we want to make as much of your money stays in your account as possible! You can give a meter reading here! Or you can submit meter reads via the My Utilita app!
