Total Gas and Power reviews
The vast majority of the 1,000+ Total Gas and Power reviews on consumer rating site Trustpilot are positive, with 61% rating the supplier as ‘Excellent’ and a further 31% rating it as ‘Great’.
Based on a sample of these positive Total Gas and Power reviews, the following are the most common sources of customer satisfaction:
- Swift and effective customer service
- Competitive pricing
As a small company, we like to make sure we are keeping our rates for energy at a good price. Our advisor was really friendly, answered all my questions and contacted us when he said he would. Very happy with the service.
Conversely, less than 1% of customers rated Total Gas and Power as ‘Average' or ‘Poor', while 31% scored it ‘Bad’, the lowest possible rating. The most common cause of customer discontentment from the negative Total Gas and Power reviews were:
- Long holding times - sometimes over an hour
- Unresolved complaints
I have tried on multiple occasions to contact the call centre to arrange payment and give notice of termination so that I can switch provider, however each time I have been on hold for a minimum of half an hour, running up expensive phone bills as a result.
Daniel Stubbs, Trustpilot
In Citizens Advice’s latest non-domestic energy supplier performance league table, Total Gas came in 9th place out of a total of 14 business energy suppliers with a customer base of more than 10,000. Citizen advice uses the following weighted scoring system to compile its rankings:
- Cases where customers have directly approached Citizens Advice for help: 10 points
- Complaints from vulnerable customers referred to the Extra Help Unit: 25 points
- Cases received by the Energy Ombudsman: 30 points
The number of cases complaints received are multiplied by the weighting factor and then divided by each supplier’s number of business customers.
Total Gas and Power tariffs
Total Gas and Power provides a variety of fixed and flexible priced tariffs and energy management plans for all types of businesses, ranging from SMEs to larger corporations with single and multiple locations.
Small and medium business tariffs
Small or medium-sized businesses can choose between electricity-only, gas-only, or dual-fuel contracts for their energy supply. The following are the Total Gas and Power tariffs available to businesses that use less than 10GWh of energy a year.
Total Gas and Power’s SmartFix plan is aimed at businesses that want to plan ahead when it comes to their gas and electricity costs. The tariff is available as a fixed-price contract for 1, 2, 3 or 4 years, protecting you from any wholesale energy market price fluctuations.
Fix For Five
The supplier’s Fix for Five contract offers much of the same advantages as its SmartFix plan, only over five years instead of between 1 and 4. Available for both gas and electricity, Fix For Five offers the same price throughout the length of the contract, meaning your business avoids any wholesale market increases.
For businesses with a little more flexibility when it comes to finances, Total Gas and Power’s Market Match tariff tracks wholesale rates, allowing you to take advantage of any market fluctuations.
Businesses agree to a fixed price for 12 months, which is reviewed against actual market rates at the end of each year. This means you could end up paying less for your energy, should the market rate drop. If wholesale prices increase, however, your business could end up paying more.
Does Total Gas and Power provide 100% renewable energy?
Total Gas and Power is one of the few UK suppliers that can actually claim to offer both 100% renewable electricity and gas. Its Eco-Energy product is available as an add-on to all of the above tariffs for businesses concerned about their carbon emissions.
100% renewable gas supplied on Eco-Energy typically comes from recycled food and farm waste, while its renewable electricity is generated using natural resources such as solar, hydro and wind. If you opt for Total Gas and Power’s Eco-Energy products, you’ll also receive a certificate to demonstrate your business’ green credentials.
Out of contract rates
Standard variable tariffs and deemed rates are energy tariffs with an indefinite duration. These are usually applied when a customer comes to the end of their contract and fails to agree to a new tariff.
Deemed rates apply to customers that move into premises where Total Gas and Power is already the supplier. These rates will remain in effect until a customer signs a new contract with Total Gas and Power or switches business energy providers.
As out of contract rates are usually more expensive than other options on the market, we recommend switching suppliers or agreeing to a new plan with Total Gas and Power as soon as possible. You can contact a Selectra business energy expert on 020 3318 3633 or request a free callback now to learn more about switching your business energy.

Energy providers are obliged to publish their fuel mix to show customers how their electricity is generated on an annual basis. Customers can make an informed decision about their business energy supply and how it affects their carbon footprint as a result of this information.
While Total Gas and Power’s Eco-Energy plans provide 100% renewable energy, the supplier’s overall output is still largely generated by fossil fuels. Having said that, it does perform better than much of its competitors when it comes to the renewable makeup of its electricity.
Total Gas and Power’s primary fuel source, according to its most recent fuel mix information, is - perhaps unsurprisingly - natural gas, which accounts for 53% of the electricity it generates. Renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, are next, at 32% of its output. Nuclear comes in third with 6%, coal comes in fourth with 5%, while the rest of Total Gas and Power’s electricity, 4%, comes from ‘other’ sources.
Meanwhile, it emits 279g of CO2 per kWh, while producing 0.0006 grams of radioactive waste per kWh. In comparison, the average CO2 emissions produced by all UK suppliers is 205g per kWh, while the average radioactive waste is 0.0012g per kWh.
*Relates to electricity supplied in the period April 2019 to March 2020.
UK Average = Coal 3.9%, Natural Gas: 39.4%, Nuclear: 16.6%, Renewable: 37.9%, Other 2.2%.

Total Gas and Power: review and verdict
As one of the largest business energy suppliers in the UK, Total Gas and Power offers a wide range of services and products to businesses of all sizes. Its tariffs are competitively-priced and offer a large amount of flexibility.
While its parent company is known for its work in the oil and gas industry, Total Gas and Power has pledged to commit to becoming carbon net-zero by 2050 and seems to be making steps in the right direction with its increasingly renewable fuel mix and eco-energy products. Nonetheless, it still has some way to go to catch up with 100% renewable business electricity suppliers such as Pozitive Energy and British Gas Lite.
In terms of the overall experience, however, a combination of online reviews and the information from Citizens Advice appear to point to a supplier that is distinctly average when it comes to customer satisfaction. Taking all of the above into consideration, we give Total Gas and Power Energy an overall rating of 3 out of 5 stars.
