Baffled by your bill?

Discover what it contains and what we do with your money

What makes up a British Gas bill?

We think you deserve to see how we calculate your bill and how we use the money. We factor in:

  • Wholesale energy costs
  • Getting energy into your home
  • Environmental and social Policies
  • Taxes
  • Our operating costs
  • Our profit

We only have control over our operating costs and profits. We cannot influence the other four elements.

How we invest our profits

We invest some of our profits back into the country's energy infrastructure on a big scale

For example, we bring new energy supplies into Britain and we extract gas from the North Sea.
