We want to make energy cheap, clean and convenient.

Our web based marketplace makes it incredibly simple for consumers and producers to trade energy peer-to-peer.

Listen to James tell you about Open Utility in his own words in this short video clip.

In this short video James tells us how he benefited from his session with Chris Gorell Barnes.

Chris was incredibly insightful in what to look for in an angel investment round. It’s not just about the money, it’s just as important to build a team of mentors who can help you with different aspects of growing the business.
