30 day Flexible Energy Plan

Freedom and flexibility for your business

If you don’t want a Fixed Rate Energy Plan you can choose our 30 day Flexible Energy Plan. With our 30 day Flexible Energy Plan your unit rate and standing charge could go up or down. We'll let you know at least 30 days before that your prices will change.

Our 30 day Flexible Energy Plan is only available to customers agreeing a new supply contract with us. Our Variable Price Plan is available for existing customers who don’t want a Fixed Rate Energy Plan.

If you're on our 30 day Flexible Energy Plan, remember that:

  • Energy prices could go up or down
  • You can upgrade to a Fixed Price Energy Plan or switch suppliers by giving us only 30 days notice and paying any outstanding bills.

Deemed contract

The default rate when you move into new premises

Deemed rates are known as the default rate.  

  • You pay deemed rates when you move into new business premises where British Gas is the supplier and we haven’t agreed a contract with you.
  • They apply when you become the legally responsible for a property.
  • Deemed contracts are usually more expensive than a Fixed Price Energy Plan.
