This figure represents an extraordinary surge of nearly 900% compared to the same period last year when the profit was £98 million.
The company is benefitting from a substantial boost resulting from Ofgem‘s decision to raise allowances for suppliers.
Chris O’Shea, Centrica Group Chief Executive, said: “Nothing is more important than delivering for our customers – it’s why we are here. Today’s results allow us to increase our customer support package to more than £100 million, and the new green investment strategy we’ve announced will see us invest several billion pounds in the energy transition, creating thousands of new well-paid jobs.
“Our robust balance sheet has allowed us to invest heavily in the UK and Ireland’s energy security and will make sure that our customers have cleaner energy at the right price.”
