About Us

Founded in 2015, Vutility is the leading provider of real-time, high-resolution, energy monitoring solutions – enabling businesses to optimize their energy consumption and improve operational efficiencies.

Our Story

The foundational idea of Vutility stemmed from a lack of transparency with monthly utility bills. A frustrated homeowner, who wanted to know more about the water usage and estimated cost, fueled the entrepreneurship that created Vutility and the HotDrop.

Since 2015, Vutility has been evolving, always focused on bringing actionable data to customers easily. We started as a data company, purely focused on giving customers the insights that mattered. We soon realized that we had the capability to develop hardware that would allow our customers an easier path to gaining that data – and the HotDrop was born.

Vutility works with customers around the world as they pursue more actionable data on utility usage.
