About Pure Planet

What's your connection with bp?

We're a private, independent company. bp holds a minority shareholding of just under 24% in Pure Planet. bp’s investment in Pure Planet is part of its Net Zero drive to support the low-carbon economy and renewables.

As one of the largest energy brokers in the world, bp buys all the renewable power and carbon offset gas on behalf of Pure Planet’s Members. Our trading agreement allows us to leverage bp's skill, expertise and its access to the entire wholesale renewable energy market ensuring your supply is competitively priced.

In May 2021 we announced a new technology partnership with bp to help us build new zero carbon digital services.

What makes your energy green?

The renewable electricity we purchase on your behalf is taken from sun, wind and water. Last year (April 2019 — March 2020), our electricity mix was 89% wind and 11% sun.

All the electricity we buy is backed by Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGOs). Read more about REGOs here.

Four in five homes in the UK are reliant on gas for heating and hot water. Until we can eliminate gas usage altogether, our gas is 100% carbon offset, at no extra cost to you, in different projects all over the world.

Read more about carbon offsetting and the projects we're involved with on the Pure Planet blog.

How do I contact you?

Our support is 100% digital, which allows us to be more efficient and save money — savings we pass on to you.

In your account menu bar tap 'Help' then 'Ask a question'. Our AI chatbot WattBot will put you through to our team if he's not able to assist with your query. This is the quickest way to get in touch with us, and we respond within three working days. The team's around to help you Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm.

We’re also available via Direct Message (DM) on Facebook and Twitter — we’ll ask you to confirm some details for security. Or, send us an email at help@purepla.net. Email replies are not as fast as WattBot.

If you lose your electricity supply, call 105 to get through to your local Distrubution Network Operator who can help you. For gas, call the gas emergency line immediately on 0800 111999. If you smell gas or suspect you have a leak, open doors and windows, do not smoke or use electrical items, and try and leave your property if possible.
