About Utilita Energy

The Lightbox Project is founded, funded and managed by Utilita Energy, the leading supplier of pre-pay gas and electricity in Great Britain. We provide free smart meters to every customer and offer a service that gives back control to those we supply, encouraging people to harness smart metering technology to save more on their day-to-day energy usage.

We wanted to do something to give back to the communities we supply - something free and of value that the whole family can take part in, so we set up the Lightbox Project, running free, unique events every few months in different locations across Great Britain. There aren't enough public, family events that offer a full day's entertainment without costing the earth to attend. There's no need to book, we want our events to be as accessible as possible so they're open to everyone on a drop-in basis.
