How we lower your church gas prices
Churches can work through a sizeable volume of gas through the winter months. So how do you go about getting a better gas price for your Church? Call us for options.
As well as a large range of suppliers, we hold energy companies to account. They often reserve their lower prices for more intensive gas users than a Church. These prices will be reserved for factories and other large consuming sectors.
A church gas account may not be particularly exciting for an energy company. With annual gas use ranging from 20,000 – 150,000 kWh, they may not see much ‘profit’ in it. Unless they build more into the price they charge per kWh of course, This can increase your unit rate by as much as 1p per kWh. We push this price down as much as possible.
And with a large number of suppliers at our disposal, this gives us numerous gas tariffs – both natural gas and green options – for your Church.
Call us today for our gas prices from suppliers.
Church saves £1,550 on gas prices
This was a 31% saving for the church
This south London church called us in 2012. The church gas costs had been £4,930 with British Gas for the previous year, and we were able to reduce this to £3,770.
The church was then able to take advantage of a drop in gas prices at the beginning of 2015. We gave them options again for 1, 2 and 3 year contracts, and agreed that fixing these low prices for 3 years would be the best option. Over the next 3 years, they paid £1,550 a year less than they paid British Gas in 2011.
“We have found their pro-active approach very helpful, working with six different contracts can be challenging and they have helped us ensure that we never miss a contract that needs renewing.”

Gas prices per kWh
What contributes to your church gas costs?
Church gas prices consist of the wholesale price of gas, as well as third party commodity charges. These are the transportation charges incurred through the distribution network, and keeping you connected. As well as government taxes. Sometimes suppliers will build these extra costs into the price per kWh.
Gas providers will take all these costs and decide how to present them within your price per kWh of gas, and the standing charge. Some suppliers may put all the costs into the unit rate for your gas, and therefore have no standing charge.
Generally, the larger your gas consumption, the higher the standing charge. Although this isn’t a strict rule and there are many variations with this. Gas contracts for meters using over 300,000 kWh of gas per year could have a standing charge of several pounds a day.
Some churches prefer to have a high standing charge, as this gives a lower price per kWh of gas. Very useful if there is a colder winter and your church uses more gas than anticipated.
“Perfect Clarity have taken all the stress out of changing energy suppliers. I highly recommend their efficient and professional services.”

Church in Leicestershire saves £600 on annual gas contract
And £1,280 less than their gas supplier, EON, wanted to charge for the next contract
John is the Treasurer for this church in Leicestershire, and contacted us to see if we could help them save money. The church gas prices had cost them £3,910 over the past 12 months. Perfect Clarity reduced this to £3,310 and these prices were fixed for the next two years.
Interestingly, their current supplier, E.ON, wanted to charge the church £1,280 more than the prices we had access to.
Can we get green gas for our church?
Absolutely, yes you can. Options are still a little limited in terms of suppliers who offer green gas tariffs. And prices are coming down.
We can provide green gas prices from several suppliers for churches.
But what is ‘green gas’?
Suppliers will offer a green gas contract in one of two ways:
1, They will purchase RGGO certificates. These are given to producers of green gas for every kWh of gas they inject into the grid. This certifies your church is purchasing green gas.
2, Some suppliers may provide natural gas but offset this by investing in carbon reduction schemes around the world.
We can talk through the options above, the relevant prices, and see which you prefer.
Green gas is Biomethane. This comes from a variety of sources, including landfill, but is mainly produced from anaerobic digestion. This is the process where microorganisms break down organic material and produce biogas. Biogas largely consists of methane and carbon dioxide.
These gases are captured and refined by green gas producers. When it meets an accepted standard, it is injected into the Grid.

More examples of Church gas savings
Methodist Church in Derbyshire saves £1,005 on gas prices
Michael called us in 2014, interested to see how our gas prices compared to the current church gas prices. Their current suppliers prices were costing the church £4,510 a year. With our network of suppliers and different tariffs, we got the church a much lower price, saving them £1,055 a year for two years. And that is just compared to their previous prices, not the higher prices they were going to be moved onto.
We also reviewed their electricity prices of £2,110 for the past year, and reduced this by £290.
More than £6,000 saved over 3 years on Church gas
Our expert knowledge achieved much cheaper rates from the current supplier
Jane is the Treasurer for this London church, and asked us to help her out with the energy contracts. With a fairly large gas use, British Gas prices were coming in at £12,100 for the year. We checked our prices, and reduced the annual cost to £9,840, saving £2,270 in one year alone.
These gas prices were fixed for the next three years, guarding against prices increases during this period. And we didn’t even switch gas supplier. The best prices we could find for the Church gas supply were from British Gas, the current supplier to the church.
