We’ll match 100% of the electricity you use from us on this tariff by purchasing electricity from renewable sources through Guarantees of Origin (GoOs).

We’ll offset double the carbon footprint created from the gas that you use on this tariff until the 31st December 2021. This means that for the electricity you use the same amount of electricity from renewable sources will be fed into the network, and for the gas that you use with us, double the carbon footprint will be offset through carbon emission reduction projects in the developing world.

When green tariffs offer additional benefits to the environment such as lower carbon emissions or donations to environmental organisations this is called ‘additionality’. This tariff does provide additionality. This is because the renewable electricity that is matched to your use is over and above our existing environmental commitments, and we will offset double the gas carbon footprint created from the gas that you use on this tariff through Certified Emissions Reduction Certificates (CERs).

With this tariff you will also need to set up an online account with us to manage everything totally online. We will ask you for an email address and get you to set up a password. You will also need to arrange a smart meter upgrade (if eligible). With smart meters, you’ll be able to see exactly what you are using in pounds and pence.

We’ll match 100% of your electricity consumption on this tariff with Guarantees of Origin (GoOs). This means purchasing certificates that guarantee electricity has been generated from a renewable source to match the electricity that you’ll use. Certified Emission Reduction Certificates (CERs) come from emission-reduction projects in developing countries. They are issued by the United Nations and are each equivalent to one tonne of CO2.

Please note, the electricity and gas you use won’t be exactly the same energy that was generated from the renewable sources. For more information about our fuel mix, environmental benefits which are in addition to our legal obligations, UK Government support for renewable energy supply and how electricity is physically distributed have a look at our PDF below.

Price Cap news for credit customers on Standard, Temporary and Safeguard tariffs

Ofgem – the regulator for the energy industry -  has announced that a Price Cap will be put in place for all credit meter customers on default tariffs.

This means that if you’re on our Standard, Temporary or Safeguard tariff, you will see a change in your estimated annual cost from 1st January, 2019. This is because the Price Cap could affect your current standing charges or unit rates.

It’s not just British Gas customers who will be affected by the Price Cap – all UK energy companies will  be affected.  Want to switch your tariff? Get a quote
