First Utility

First Utility was founded in 2008 and since then has become the largest independent energy supplier in the UK. First Utility is continuing to grow its market share in the increasingly competitive domestic energy supply sector and now how over one million customers, making it the seventh largest UK energy supplier.

First Utility offer a number of competitive energy tariffs which provide great alternatives to the ‘big six’ suppliers. First Utility also have a great online platform allowing you to manage your energy use online.

First utility are also a big promoter of change in the domestic energy sector, campaigning for the scrapping of variable tariffs such as those that many people automatically revert to following initial lower-rate fixed periods. Many suppliers only provide minimal notice following fixed periods which can lead to paying more without being aware. First Utility therefore make it clear when your fixed period ends and aim to ensure you sign up to a new low-price fixed tariff.

Whilst First Utility provide some great energy tariffs, you should always check prices based on your own specific circumstances.
