If you use more than 150,000 kWh of gas, you can pay a premium to upgrade to Renewable Gas.
Renewable Gas (also known as biomethane) is made from renewable sources such as leftover food and farm waste. It works just like normal gas made from fossil-fuels, but it’s virtually carbon neutral when burned, making it a greener, more sustainable option for the future. If you use more than 150,000 kWh of gas, you can pay an added premium to upgrade to one of our Renewable Gas products.
British Gas offers two forms of Renewable Gas, to help fuel your transition to net zero.
Depending on the option you choose, your gas supply will either be will either be 100% Renewable Gas or 10% Renewable Gas combined with 90% carbon offsets to neutralise the remining emissions.
These certify that this amount of gas is from biomethane injected into the grid. It’s also your guarantee that the green gas is authentic and hasn’t been sold elsewhere.
A proportion of your supply can be offset by independently verified carbon offsetting projects, which help to counteract the release of greenhouse gas emissions.
