    Utilita have one of the lowest tariffs for electric and gas in the country.They do have there problems like any energy company in this country.Points to note… keep your freedom box plugged in,not battery. If you have keys ask for cards. When topping up online ALWAYS make sure you top up number goes to your website or mobile(sometimes the freedom box will not update) so top up the box yourself . some hints hope it helps.

  6. John says:

    Can anyone tell me how to switch the emergency credit on the new smart meter as I have 4.4 p left and I have tried everything. Thank u for ur time.

  7. mark says:

    I have a Freedom unit with incorrect time and date.
    At 2am it knocks the power off because it thinks its 10am, but all the shops are closed at 2am and I cannot topup my account.
    Is there any way of resetting the time/date apart from removing the batteries for 20 mins, and would the battery thing actually work???

  8. phil says:

    Why when paying on-line did your company take £8 from a £20 payment? Surely this should not happen and nothing is stated in any literature about this deduction…..

  9. David says:

    I am looking at the general domestic rate and I would be grateful if someone could tell me what are: First Units Rate, Threshold and Second Units Rate? Which one indicates the rate I need to pay for energy?

    Thank you in advance.

I didn’t have the money till 2 more days and me and my 4 year old daughter was left freezing, still cant understand y I needed more on, as I had money on!! They are getting ridiculous for prices, my elec is also started to cost 15 a week!!

  20. peter bolton says:

    On the 30th April phoned to get help with an ongoing problem and the unprofessional response was rude and upset me. I wish for this problem with both my meters to be sorted with prompt and swift action.

  21. noureen says:

    This company is a joke
    I’ve been waiting over 6months for a meter and every time I ring they make a new excuse.

  22. Shabbir Mussa says:

    Please post details of joining with your company as soon as possible thank you.

  23. Natalie Hanslip says:

    I have one of your freedom units installed, I noticed that it says the wrong time I was wondering how to change the time on the unit I only found it out when the low credit alarm went off at 10.30pm and it says it won’t go off between the hours of 10pm and 8am. Please could someone help me.

  24. Miss Gillian Brown says:

    My gas meter is not working I cant cook a meal or have heating on. I have small children in my house that are cold, tried to call but get told no one is there till Monday I think that is wrong.

  25. Jason Palmer says:

    I think Utilita are fantastic. £20 for two weeks electricity? Hello? No fiddly keys to worry about; it’s a card. Your credit is sent by text to your meter, £10 emergency and no way you’ll be cut off if you run out of credit between 4pm and 10 am the next day. Or, 4pm Friday night till 10am Monday morning. Or, if it’s a bank holiday, 10am TUESDAY morning! You will have to pay this back though. I’ve definitely noticed the difference in my outgoings with Utilita. Around £2 – £3 a fortnight. I love ‘em. That is all.

    • karen says:

      Hi, if u take the battery out of freedom box an leave for 20 mins, put them back in and wait for a few seconds. Then on the main unit press and hold the 0 for 15 seconds it should make a click sound and will then turn on. Hope this helps
