Additional information

  1. Price Promise Tariff is a fixed tariff with a difference. We'll reduce your prices from 1st April. This will provide an average saving of £30 (based on Ofgem typical medium usage) versus the April price cap. This will be applied as a reduction on unit rates and standing charges split across both gas and electricity. All dual fuel customers will benefit from a minimum saving of £20. Eligibility and terms and conditions apply.

  2. Based on electricity prices correct as of 29/01/2024. When you plug in your EV for 6 hours or more covering the period of 12am to 5am, you’ll qualify for a 4p discount off your EV tariff night rate of 8.95p/kWh for all electrical consumption. 4p/kWh discount also applies at any other time of day on any other British Gas electricity tariff if your EV is left plugged in for 6 hours or more. 

    By managing your charger with Hive SmartCharge we’ll give you a credit each month with money back directly on your British Gas bill.
