Boost is a dedicated Pay As You Go energy company that is part of OVO Energy.
The energy provider only supplies Pay As You Go customers, and states its mission is to ‘create PAYG energy that works around you’. Boost currently provides gas and electricity to more than 300,000 homes across the UK.
Boost was launched as its own brand in 2017, when OVO Energy decided to split its prepayment energy business to better serve its growing customer base. The company supplies both traditional and smart prepayment meters.
Customers that have a smart meter installed are able to top up via the company’s smartphone application. This app also gives users easy access to additional features such as scheduling automated top-ups, saving money for winter increases, and tracking energy consumption.
Boost’s energy tariffs do not have any exit fees and offer 50% renewable electricity, helping reduce overall carbon emissions.
Boost Power is based in Bristol, created in 2017 as an independent Pay As You Go energy supplier by OVO Energy.
The firm is a subsidiary of OVO Energy. OVO transferred all of their prepayment customers over to Boost in an effort to simplify how they do business through a separate dedicated company. Although Boost is a separate company, they are still part of the OVO family.
In 2017, they had around 190,000 customers. Boost Energy acquired Economy Energy in 2017, they now have an estimated customer base of 350,000.
The company’s mission is ‘to make PAYG energy fit around your life – not the other way around’. They offer both Smart Pay As You Go Energy, along with traditional PAYG energy to help meet their customers’ needs.
