Boost Power | Compare Gas & Electric Prices PAYG | UKPower
Boost is a pay-as-you go energy supplier, which means they provide energy deals for households on pre-payment meters.
Launched in 2017 when Ovo Energy split its pre-payment energy meter business from its credit meter business, Boost's aim is to 'make PAYG energy fit around your life’.
Not only do prepayement meter customers pay higher rates than those on credit meter, they are often underserved by energy suppliers. Boost aims to change this in the following ways:
- Top up smart prepayment meters using a smartphone app
- Use app to track energy usage and schedule automatic top-ups
- 50% renewable electricty and no exit fees
If you are joining Boost in the winter period, the monthly repayments are likely to be a little higher than 1/12th of the total year's bill. This is to ensure your account does not go into arrears during the colder months, in which you will be expected to use around 25% more energy.
