Utilita was set up in 2003 and is a gas and electricity supplier focused on serving customers who use prepayment meters.
When opting for Utilita’s Smart prepayment tariff a free smart metering system is installed which aims to help customers understand and manage their energy usage.
The kit comes with individual gas and electricity meters that sync to a smart meter within your home. The meter then displays your recent balance and estimates of how many days until you need to next top up.
Utilita’s customers rate them highly on BazaarVoice, a review site where customers leave feedback for companies they’ve used. They gave Utilita reviews and star ratings based on important factors like their customer service, as well as how easy it was to change suppliers and whether they felt they got good value for money.
Reviews and ratings are a good way to see whether customers are satisfied with the services they get, so you know what you can expect if and when you sign up.

What happens if my energy supplier goes bust?
It is very rare for an energy supplier to go out of business, but it happened in 2016, with the collapse of GB Energy.
As happened then, any future collapse and its consequences would be managed by Ofgem, the energy market regulator. Thanks to Ofgem’s safety net, even if your supplier goes out of business, your gas and/or electricity supply will never be cut off or interrupted.
All UK energy suppliers are regulated by Ofgem.
In addition to guaranteeing continuity of supply, Ofgem works to move customers of a failed company to the best possible deal, with any debit/credit transferred to a new supplier that is chosen to inherit the business.
