Community Utilities is a bespoke solution designed to solve the problems faced by the build to rent industry.

We know you have better things to do with your time than deal with lots of utility suppliers. That’s why we do all the leg work, providing you with a bill that groups your utilities together, set up smart technology so we never need manual meter readings and co-ordinate with your new landlord for a seamless onboarding process.

By taking advantage of the benefits of scale we get you great rates with suppliers and switch every year on your behalf, so you never pay more than you need to for your utilities.

As part of the Amber Enterprise Group, we have a wealth of industry experience and accolades that ensure our service delivers time and time again.

How does it work?

In the simplest form, we buy the utilities for all apartments in your building.

By buying in bulk, utilising our supplier relationships and our buying power in the market, we can secure you better prices than if you bought energy for individual apartments.

Then we use smart meters to take readings from each apartment and wrap this up into one monthly bill, ensuring that everyone living in the building only pays for the utilities they’ve used.

Our portal lets you manage your account and set up your payment amounts, helping with your budgeting. Any credit balance built up on your account can be refunded at any point, – just let us know. If you don’t ask to be refunded then it doesn’t just sit there - we’ll give you 3% interest per annum.
