Utilita Energy first to cut gas prices in 2016

Britain’s leading pre-pay energy provider, Utilita Energy, once again leads the way – being the first to cut its gas prices in time for the New Year. The average pre-pay customer in the Greater London area will see a 6.2% price reduction – equating to a saving of £38.16 – come into effect on 1st January 2016.

This is Utilita Energy’s third price cut in the capital since 1st January 2015, which means that their London customers have seen their gas prices reduced by £95.23 in a year – a massive 14.2% saving! The average saving for customers across the whole of Britain is £63 – or 9.5%. The cut also confirms Utilita Energy’s prices remain cheaper than the Big Six energy providers*** for pre-pay smart meter customers.

“Britain’s families – and in particular the elderly – are hard-pressed as it is this time of year and so we will do everything we can to help them,” said Utilita Energy CEO, Bill Bullen. “Our customers in London are entitled to this further cut simply because wholesale oil markets continue to fall – our view is if we pay less, we’ll always aim to ensure our customers pay less too.

“Our Price Commitment is incredibly important to us; since 2008 we have been committed to doing our best to ensure our prices remain cheaper than the Big Six for pre-payment customers – because heat and light are a necessity, not a luxury,” he continued. “We have maintained that commitment for seven years and we’ll aim to continue to do so. Giving our customers the best – and fairest – deals we can remains at the heart of everything we do.”

Utilita Energy’s unique offering – including that price commitment, friendly & emergency credit and free user-friendly smart meters – has seen its customer base treble from 90,000 in April 2014 to more than 275,000 by December 2015.
