    How is the energyshare tariff electricity from 100% British renewable sources?

    • Answer
    • The energyshare¬†tariff matches every unit of electricity a tariff member uses by supplying the national grid with the same amount of electricity from 100% British renewable sources. This is audited by the Green Energy Supply Certification Scheme and we match it from renewable sources such as the Lynn and Inner Dowsing wind farm off the coast of Lincolnshire.

      We do that by retiring Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin and Levy Exemption Certificates, meaning that this electricity can't be double counted. The British Gas fuel mix refers to the total mix of energy sources for the whole of British Gas' electricity supply, including other tariffs. Renewable sources make up 6.8% of this amount.
