Does British Gas offer Green Energy Plans in East of England?

British Gas does not produce or sell green energy. Rather, they offset their enegies by buying Renewable Energy Guarentees of Orgin (REGOS). Green energy producers can sell REGOSs separately from their produced energy supply which in turn funds renewable energy projects in the UK. This is how British Gas Provides green energy to their suppliers

The greenest plan that British Gas offers is called ‘Green Future’ which is a fixed tariff and costs a few extra pounds a month. Here is what this plan offers to its customers:

  • 6% of the gas you use is matched by British Gas and sent back to the grid (through REGOs).
  • 94% of the gas you use with Green Future will be offset.
  • 100% of the electricity you use is matched by British Gas and sent back to the grid.
  • 5 trees will be grown in the UK per unit of fuel you use on the Green Future tariff.
