Variable Price

Variable prices change with market fluctuations and may expose a customer to extreme price highs or lows based on market conditions. This product is attractive for customers with a higher risk tolerance who can absorb price volatility in exchange for the potential for the lowest cost. Some of this volatility can be mitigated by fixing non-energy cost components (capacity, ancillaries, losses, CES charges).

Fixed Price

For Customers who manage expenses to a budget or just like having price certainty, fixed price options are available. Prices are fixed for the term of the contract and while consumption will vary from billing period to billing period, the unit rate will not. There is typically flexibility in the contract term length and depending on the supplier, some flexibility on what is fixed in the price (fixing energy but passing through certain non-energy components)

Hybrid Price

Can’t decide between a Variable and a Fixed Price? Why not do both? Depending on the supplier, there are options available to fix a portion of your price and leaving the remainder on a variable rate. This provides you with partial price protection if the market climbs, but it also allows you to partially benefit from lower pricing if the market rates drop.
