LandlordZONE Reveals Utilita Energy as Official Energy Partner

Energy boss on a mission to help landlords get ahead of the EPC hot potato

Utilita Energy has stepped up to become LandlordZONE’s official energy partner, and is on a mission to spend the next 12 months putting landlords on the energy efficiency front foot in preparation for whatever the political hot potato brings next.

The 12-month support and education campaign will guide landlords to make the best pro-pocket and pro-planet decision for their budget, while making it all easy to understand and act upon. 

In addition to a range of LandlordZONE webinars and podcasts, Utilita Energy will provide landlords with a range of supportive content and guides. To help Utilita roll this out in the right order to meet your needs, please complete this short survey, found here


  • A simple guide on the energy efficiency grants and support available to you/your tenants and how to apply
  • EPC Hacks - Improve your property’s energy efficiency for no-to-low cost (a picture-based guide).
  • An EPC hacks video series - Utilita will enlist five landlords/properties showcasing the variety of EPC hacks.
  • A table of EPC measures and their cost per square metre against the average return on investment (to direct you on where to start).
  • Thermal imaging tool hire for you to better understand the thermal efficiency of your properties, via Utilita. 
  • Access to examples of detailed EPC assessments for properties closest to those you let.


Landlords completing the survey can also opt-in to sign their properties up to be featured in the content. Those taking part may receive free measures for being featured. 

Bill Bullen, founder and CEO of Utilita Energy explains why he is investing in the year-long education and support programme for landlords: 

“Politics too often gets in the way of practical progress, and in this situation, landlords have been left in a horrible position not knowing what to do in terms of energy efficiency measures, and, invariably, they have a much smaller pot of money to make improvements.

“Our 12-month programme of information and advice is designed to help landlords cut through the confusion and make the right decisions for their properties and budgets, all while promoting positive, long-term tenancies.”

Paul Shamplina, Chief Commercial Officer of LandlordZONE’s parent organisation HFIS group, comments on the partnership: 

“Energy suppliers and landlords alike have become two of the UK media’s favourite whipping boys and this campaign is a great example of best practice, so let’s all get involved and shout loud and proud about it.  We really enjoyed working with Utilita on the smart meter education campaign last year, and we are excited to see this latest campaign impact our members.  

“I can hand-on-heart say that Utilita is a rare breed of energy supplier - a British kitchen table start-up that is - 20-years on - and not to mention all the domestic and global energy challenges - innovating more than any other supplier to give people a better energy experience. 

“Utilita is the only energy supplier to open 12 not-for-profit high street energy hubs to help the general public understand energy better and this landlord campaign is an extension of that - it will really help landlords, and is all free-to-access.”
