Our Green Futures tariff has won gold

British Gas is committed to improving the environment for everybody. So we’re delighted that our Green Futures tariff has been awarded the gold standard by Uswitch - one of only two energy suppliers to achieve this accreditation.

Winning gold takes effort and dedication. And to achieve the Uswitch standard, British Gas matches 100% of the electricity you use with renewable sources, such as UK wind and solar power. On top of that, the carbon footprint for 100% of the gas you use is balanced by CO2-cutting projects around the world. We also use renewable biogas from food and farm waste.

With Green Futures, you can be sure you’ve chosen one of the most environment-friendly tariffs available anywhere. Because we work harder to do our bit for the planet, we make it easier for you to do yours.

Frequently asked questions

What is a kilowatt hour (kWh)?

A kWh stands for kilowatt hour – the unit used to measure energy use. 1 kWh will power a 40 watt light bulb for 25 hours.

What is a Personal Projection?

Your Personal Projection is an estimate of what you’re likely to pay over the next 12 months. We work it out using the unit rate for where you live, daily standing charge, any applicable discounts and how much energy we think you’ll use in the next 12 months. It includes VAT.

What happens if I change the way I pay?

If you move from Direct Debit to pay by Cash or Cheque, your unit rate will increase. You can see the difference between Direct Debit and Cash or Cheque rates by updating your personalised quote. We’ll always give you seven days’ notice before we change the way you pay, though.

Do I need to tell my current supplier I'm switching?

No - once you've given us your details and confirmed that you want to switch, we'll handle everything for you.
