Our 30 day Rolling 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 Rolling Energy Plan, remember that:

  • Energy prices could go up or down

Deemed rates

The default rate when you move into new premises

Deemed rates are known as the default rate.  

  • If you move into a new British Gas supplied premises without agreeing a new contract with us, you’ll be on our deemed rates
  • Deemed rates are usually more expensive than a Fixed Price Energy Plan. This is because it costs us more to buy energy to supply your business, if we don't know how long you'll be with us

If you're paying deemed rates you can move to a cheaper business energy price plan by contacting our business movers team.

Deemed rates will change depending on wholesale market price changes. We'll write to you before the prices change.
