Additional information

  1. Based on our currently available fixed-term tariffs compared with Ofgem’s price cap for the period 1st April 2024 to 30th June 2024. The energy price cap starting 1 April 2024 is £1,690 a year for a typical household who use gas and electricity and pay by Direct Debit. This is based on an annual gas usage of 11,500 kWh and annual electricity usage of 2,700 kWh. Eligibility and terms and conditions apply.

  2. Based on electricity prices correct as of 15/05/2024. When you plug in your EV for 6 hours or more covering the period of 12am to 5am, you’ll qualify for a 4p discount off your EV tariff night rate of 7.9p/kWh for all electrical consumption. 4p/kWh discount also applies at any other time of day on any other British Gas electricity tariff if your EV is left plugged in for 6 hours or more. 

    By managing your charger with Hive SmartCharge we’ll give you a credit each month with money back directly on your British Gas bill.
