Utilita Energy, one of the leading challengers to the Big Six, has confirmed it will hold its prices throughout the winter.

The rising challenger brand celebrated reaching 450,000 customers this week - up from just 200,000 in July 2015 – by reassuring them it will freeze ALL of its gas and electricity tariffs until at least April 2017.

“We do all we can to give our customers the fairest deal possible so I am delighted we can reassure them they will not be paying more this winter – we will continue to do everything in our power to help Britain’s hard-pressed families,” said CEO Bill Bullen.

“We have seen many other suppliers – large and small – increase their prices in recent weeks, creating uncertainty and fear for many of their customers. Utilita’s customers will not have those same worries this winter.”

Smart Pay As You Go provider Utilita has held a Price Commitment aiming to always be cheaper than the Big Six since 2008* – cutting its gas prices five times since 1 January 2015.

Its last price rise came as far back as August 2014.
