Where does Bulb’s ‘green’ gas come from?
As far as I know there is no such thing as green gas. All the things you mention would produce methane
Nice to see you back on Community
So our gas at Bulb is 100% carbon neutral. We offset the emissions from the gas we supply by supporting carbon reduction projects around the world.
We’ve also written a blog about where our green gas comes from if you’d like a bit more information. Our blogs also cover the offsetting projects we have and some more information about the energy we use so I recommend taking a look!
So you gas is not Green
We’re one of the biggest buyers of green gas for homes in the UK. For April 2020-March 2021, 3% was green gas produced from renewable sources like food or farm waste.
We work with generators who use a variety of feedstocks to produce their renewable gas. For April 2019 - March 2020, the latest data available, the breakdown was:
Purpose grown crops: 93%
Food or farm waste: 4%
Residues (e.g. vegetable peelings, cereal straw): 3%
The issue is that there isn’t a lot of green gas production, so we buy as much as we can but the rest we offset.
