Utility Point hit the energy market back in 2018. The Dorset-based company often has some of the cheapest gas and electricity prices around and offers its customers a wide range of tariffs and deals. As well as gas and electricity, they provide a range of other services including home emergency cover, boiler servicing and boiler installation.

Their cheap tariffs make them a popular choice for customers switching energy supplier. The company offers a range of attractive tariffs specifically aimed at switchers. These give you access to low-cost gas and electricity for up to 18 months. This can make it even cheaper to get your gas and electricity from the supplier.

To help you decide if Utility Point is right for you, we’re taking a closer look at the supplier, its plans, prices and everything it has to offer.

The company states on its website that it believes in people ‘taking back control of their energy usage’. The brand promises to put customers on their cheapest available tariff when their fixed term expires and also guarantees to protect customers from wholesale price rises wherever possible.

However, while the brand does have a customer-centred approach, it doesn’t offer all of the features available from other small suppliers. For example, Utility Point doesn’t yet have an app and the supplier doesn’t offer a 100% renewable energy tariff. Smart Meters are also not available by them, so you’ll have to take meter readings manually to keep your bill on track.
If you’re thinking about moving to Utility Point, you’ll need to weigh up the pros and cons of the supplier and its service before making a switch.

Pros:

  • Cheap tariffs
  • Customer-centred approach
  • Price promise
  • Rewards scheme

Cons:

  • No App
  • No Smart Meters
  • No option for 100% renewable energy
  • Not part of the Warm Home Discount
