Your at-a-glance guide to British Gas

British gas overview

British Gas is part of Centrica PLC. It’s a British-based international energy and services company, with headquarters in Berkshire.

Centrica PLC has several brands, but British Gas is arguably the best known. This is because it is the UK’s biggest energy provider.

British Gas as we know it today began life as the The Gas Light & Coke Company (GLCC) in 1812. Following nationalisation in the 1940s, the gas industry was privatised in 1986. This was when British Gas PLC was formed. British Gas for business supplies over 500,000 organisations, making it the biggest commercial energy provider in the UK.

Utility Bidder is proud to partner with such a major brand name. Our close relationship with British Gas means we can offer your business tailored products and services.

British Gas Business Plans

British Gas provides business energy on a fixed price plan of between 1 and 5 years. During a fixed term plan, you’ll pay the same unit rate. This is great news for budgeting and managing energy costs. Regardless of what happens to the market, your price will remain the same.

If you prefer a flexible option, that’s no problem. British Gas has a 30-Day Rolling Energy Plan which offers more freedom. This is a good option for businesses considering moving premises, or who like to shop around for the best deals. You won’t be locked into a fixed price, but unit prices could go up or down. However, if prices rise, you’ll be informed at least 30 days in advance.

As British Gas is such a large operation, it offers a full range of commercial services. It all starts with a full boiler service for all new or renewing customers.

When you’re a British Gas customer, managing your energy is easy. Using your online account, you can log in to submit meter readings, pay your bills online and access many other services. Choose direct debit or another method as the easiest way to pay – whatever works for you.

Renewing your British Gas plan with Utility Bidder

Is your business energy renewal coming up? If so, you’ll receive a letter from British Gas around 60 days before your fixed energy plan ends. This is an excellent time to speak to Utility Bidder to see how we can help you find a new deal.

British Gas plans don’t usually auto renew. This means that the next bill you pay online after your renewal could be linked to a Variable Price Plan. This could be more expensive, so it’s really important to speak to us as soon as you receive your renewal notice.

You could even plan ahead and do it earlier. We’re happy to help with early renewal negotiations.

Could a British Gas smart meter save you money?

British Gas is keen to encourage business customers to move to smart meters. These devices show your energy usage in real time (usually every 30 minutes).

Smart meters are ideal for large businesses that use a lot of energy. You’ll gain an accurate picture of your energy usage, which can create opportunities for improved energy efficiency. A smart meter can also help British Gas to offer you a more tailored deal.

And of course, if you compare business energy with Utility Bidder, we’ll use your meter readings and bills to provide a bespoke quote.
