As far as I know there is no such thing as green gas. All the things you mention would produce methane

Hey @man-thinking :wave:

Nice to see you back on Community :relaxed:

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.

A chunk of our carbon neutral gas is produced from renewable sources, too. These are verified by the Green Gas Certification Scheme or Green Gas Trading Ltd.

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! :eyes:

So you gas is not Green

Hi @Ken2 :wave:

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.

Let us know if you have any other questions

Thanks,
Mel
