Yorkshire Gas and Power
Yorkshire Gas and Power have a mission to give companies better treatment than they have previously had from previous suppliers.
However, YGP only has a 3.3-star rating on Google out of 5-stars. But this is out of a total of only 6 Google reviews.
There are no reviews to be found on other sites like Trustpilot.
Online reviews aren’t always reliable, but they should still be taken into consideration when looking at energy suppliers that you would like to switch to.
Positive Yorkshire Gas and Power Review
Jane Muirhead on Google:
The service we receive from Lauren is the best we have from any of the suppliers we’ve had in the past. The switch over to Yorkshire Gas and Power wasn’t easy, but not due to Yorkshire Gas and Power but our previous supplier.
Negative Yorkshire Gas and Power Review
Joanne Robinson on Google:
Disgusted by Yorkshire Gas and Power making it difficult to terminate your agreement by demanding you only POST and send by REGISTERED POST or they will not accept it! Other suppliers are happy to terminate by phone or email.

Who Should Use the Company?
Finally, Yorkshire Gas and Power might be a good fit for customers who would like to be treated differently than they have been in the past by their former energy supply companies. There are also multiple benefits from their fixed and flexible contract options.
- A company with a refreshing attitude to energy
- Transparent and clear billing
- Able to group multiple sites contracts together
- They do not offer as many services as their competitors
- No Trustpilot reviews
- No online account management
Yorkshire Gas and Power is a company that has been providing energy to commercial properties since 2009 but does not currently have a large online following with only six reviews on Google and none on Trustpilot.
This makes it hard to gauge its reputation with customers, but that along with the lack of online account management, it seems that YGP has some improvements to make to become a solid competitor with the more significant energy suppliers.
