Total Gas & Power Reviews, News & Updates
Established back in 1987 when the gas sector was deregulated, Total Gas & Power has since supplied more than 80,000 organisations across a wide range of sectors and industries. From SMEs to large multinational companies, it takes pride in its support of businesses of all shapes and sizes.
Total Gas & Power is one of the leading commercial energy outfits in the UK and make up part of the main Total Group — who you’ll likely recognise from their many petrol stations scattered across the globe. Total Gas & Power supplies gas and electricity to business, both from a commercial and industrial perspective.
Total Gas & Power was created via a merger between Total and a Belgian oil company by the name of Petrofina, resulting in Totalfina. This new business entity then expanded even further with a second merger with French-based oil company, Elf Aquitaine.
This formed the collective, TotalFinaElf — which was streamlined to simply Total S.A in 2003 — who control and run the energy supplier Total Gas & Power.
The headquarters of Total Gas & Power is located in Redhill in Surrey, England. Their address is:
55-77 High Street
