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.

Frequently asked questions
What makes this tariff green?
Some tariffs offer additional benefits to the environment on top of any legal obligations the energy supplier may have, this is called 'additionality’. Our Green Future tariffs provide additionality. That’s because the 100% renewable electricity and 10% green gas that is matched to your use is over and above our existing environmental commitments. We also offset the carbon footprint created from 90% of the gas that you use on this tariff by supporting emission reduction projects in developing countries. Furthermore, we support UK tree-growing projects, this is in addition to offsetting the carbon footprint created by 90% of the gas you use on this tariff.

What if I change my mind?
Should you decide it’s not the right tariff for you and you want to cancel your contract, you won’t have to pay an exit fee within 14 days of signing up.
An exit fee may apply if you decide to switch to another supplier before the end date of your fixed tariff, but not during the switching window, which starts 49 days before the tariff ends. If you decide to change to one of our other tariffs at any time, there are no exit fees. Please see terms & conditions for full details including exit fees for each tariff.
