Fuel Mix Disclosure

We are required by Ofgem to disclose our fuel mix for the year from April 2015 to March 2016.

What does it mean?

The fuel mix information details how the electricity we supply you with has been generated in the previous year from each fuel source - such as coal, natural gas, renewable and nuclear energy - and compares BES Commercial Electricity's fuel mix with the average for GB.

What is it for?

The information on our fuel sources and their environmental impact is designed to help you make an informed choice about your energy supplier. Similar information will be published by suppliers across Europe, in much the same way as emission levels are quoted for new cars.

Will your fuel mix stay the same or change?

Our fuel mix will gradually change as more energy will be supplied from renewable sources in the future.
