Utility Warehouse Reviews & Tariffs

Utility Warehouse is the seventh-largest energy company in the UK. If you haven’t heard of them before, it’s probably because they don’t really advertise, relying on recommendations instead.

A Guide To Utility Warehouse

Utility Warehouse Trustpilot Reviews: 4.3 out of 5 stars, based on around 40,000 reviews, rated ‘Great’ overall.

Founded in 2002 and currently serving half a million customers, Utility Warehouse is a bit different to its competitors, referring to itself as a ‘Discount Club’. They make it sound pretty easy – you choose a bundle including energy, broadband, and phone, provide some details, and then set up your services.

The company started life when it connected with npower (from whom they bought 770,000 customers) and Telecom Plus (which provides line rental and broadband). Utility Warehouse doesn’t generate its fuel, it sources its electricity from Electricity Plus.

Utility Warehouse doesn’t advertise, instead, they use 40,000 ‘Utility Warehouse Partners’ who recommend them for commission as part of a multi-level marketing scheme. This doesn’t necessarily mean the partner recommending them is happy with the service though, as they’re paid to promote it, so it’s possibly a flawed recruitment process.

You can still set up an account without going through a Partner.

Utility Warehouse Smart Meter

Just like other energy companies, Utility Warehouse is rolling out smart meters gradually in different areas of the UK. If you’re eligible (the rules are a bit vague, but you can get all the info on the Smart Energy GB site) they’ll contact you to book an installation. You can’t register your interest with them, but if you’re a customer, you’re on their list.

Smart meters mean you don’t have to manually submit meter readings anymore and your bill will be more accurate. You can also monitor your usage on the screen throughout the day and reduce consumption in real time.

Your electricity usage will be reported every few seconds, and your gas usage every half an hour. The government have set a deadline for energy companies to provide all eligible customers with smart meters free of charge by 2020.

Other Utility Warehouse Meters

The help section of Utility Warehouse’s site includes some guidance on reading your meter and sending your readings. They recommend you send a reading each month, but they’ll accept at least one every 3 months.

If you’re not able to get a smart meter just yet, sending regular meter readings is the best way to keep your bill accurate.

Utility Warehouse Bills

You can receive your bill through the post or email, and check them in the ‘Clubhouse’ (what Utility Warehouse call their online account). What your bill means and how it works is explained in a guide on the UW site too.

Utility Warehouse Warm Home Discount

Utility Warehouse was part of the 2017/18 Warm Home Discount (WHD) scheme, which gives vulnerable people £140 towards their energy bills. For the latest information on UW's participation in the WHD scheme, see their relevant Utility Warehouse Warm Home Discount page.

Utility Warehouse App

The Clubhouse app is available on the App Store and Google Play Store, giving customers access to their energy, mobile, phone, and broadband accounts in one place. Utility Warehouse offers Cashback with 2000 retailers, so you can check your balance here too. There’s a separate app for Utility Warehouse Partners to help them bring new customers on board.

410 Android users give the app 4.2/5 and 77 iPhone users give the app 3.5/5, though some people find it difficult to log in or found the app crashed regularly.

Switching To Utility Warehouse

Switching takes roughly 3 weeks, but because you’re switching your broadband and phone as well as your energy, it could involve more complications than usual depending on your existing providers and their rules/costs.

Moving Home With Utility Warehouse

Utility Warehouse stresses that they want moving house to be as simple as possible, so they ask you to let them know when you’re moving and they’ll “arrange the rest”.

As tariffs vary from region to region, and depending on what kind of home you live in and how your boiler functions, you might find the prices go up or down if you move to a different area if you stick with them.

Utility Warehouse Feed-in Tariff

Utility Warehouse is a mandatory Feed-in Tariff (FIT) licensee. This means you can receive your FIT payments from them (as long as your system is MCS certified) if you are a Utility Warehouse customer or your current energy supplier is not a FIT licensee. You can learn more on their website.
