In an uncertain market, we recognise that being able to budget effectively for essential overheads is an important consideration for many businesses. That’s why we offer customers the ability to fix energy costs at an agreed rate, leaving you free to budget confidently against your consumption.
As the wholesale power market continues to be volatile, our Fixed: Certainty product provides your business with more control of electricity budgeting, whether you consume via Half Hourly or Non-Half-Hourly meters or a mixture of both.
Unlike many other fixed contracts on the market, Fixed: Certainty not only fixes electricity commodity costs, it also fixes many of the variable non-commodity costs that make up an increasingly large share of your bill. These include the government’s Feed in Tariff and Renewables Obligation, as well as National Grid charges for system use, transmission and distribution. Once fixed, these costs are guaranteed – so there is no chance of any later reconciliation and the price you see is the price you pay.
We assess your business needs and site portfolio, so that we understand your priorities in managing your power purchasing, then tailor your Fixed: Certainty contract to include key features best suited to your requirements.
You then choose the length of your contract and your payment method:
Once you’ve agreed your contract, you’ll clearly see the costs you pay. For non-commodity costs, these are also plainly detailed – with fixed element costs guaranteed for the contract duration. Some costs are still charged as a pass-through basis, such as the Climate Change Levy or Renewable Charge and Fossil Fuel Levy, as applicable to individual businesses. But these are also clearly stated, creating complete transparency from the outset.
