Budget Portfolio

Offer your clients the security of a fixed contract, with flexible purchasing benefits

What is Budget Portfolio?

Budget Portfolio enables you to offer your smaller clients the benefits of large-scale purchasing power, but while still retaining the security of a fixed-rate contract arrangement. There is no minimum volume requirement for individual clients and a maximum annual consumption volume per client of 6GWh. But to qualify for Budget Portfolio, you must aggregate your nominated clients into one or more purchasing groups with a collective minimum annual volume of 6GWh. Contracts can then be offered for 24 months.

A new approach to buying energy

We can’t predict the future, but we can now offer you the opportunity to secure more advantageous rates for fixed-contract clients. Rather than waiting to fix the commodity rate at the start of a new contract period, our energy market professionals on the npower Optimisation Desk will monitor the wholesale market on your behalf and secure a rate which matches – or beats – your client’s energy budget before their contract start date. What’s more, Budget Portfolio will also fix the specified non-commodity elements of your client’s energy bill, allowing them to budget more effectively. And there is full consumption flexibility, as Budget Portfolio is offered without volume tolerance restrictions.
