Why Green Gas?

A hob using our frack-free gas

The conventional gas that we use to cook and heat our homes with is a fossil fuel – it’s causing climate change and it’s running out.

Green Gas Mills are the beginning of an energy revolution in Britain. Just as our electricity is made from the wind and the sun, our Gas Mills will use a natural energy source to make Green Gas. You can read how it works here.

Making Green Gas ourselves, instead of importing it from other countries, displaces fossil fuels from the National Grid and helps to make Britain more energy independent for years to come.

It's something we've been working on for several years. And we're pretty excited that we're about to begin turning our customers' Green Gas bills into Green Gas Mills ;-)

Our Green Gas Comes with a Frack Free Promise

Our Green Gas tariff is Frack Free – we’ll never source any of our gas from shale. That's a promise.

...renewable gas could meet up to 50% of UK residential gas demand. Produced mainly via a process of anaerobic digestion (AD) or thermal gasification of the UK’s biodegradeable waste, renewable gas represents a readily implementable solution for delivering renewable heat to homes in the UK.
