Fixed energy pricing

With fixed energy pricing, your energy rates/charges are set for the term of your contract. That charge covers the price of energy and our retail services, such as meter reading, billing and customer support. However, certain additional charges, like network charges and government and regulatory charges, may change with 30 days’ notice.

The duration of a fixed energy plan is usually two or three years, depending on where your business is located. 

Choose fixed pricing if:

  • you want more certainty than variable pricing to help you budget
  • you’re happy to sign up to a contract of up to three years. Exit fees may apply upon early termination.

Variable pricing

With variable pricing, you have no fixed term contract. However, both the network or energy price can change, in which case we will give you 30 days’ notice of this change. 

You can change from variable pricing to fixed pricing at any time. 

Choose variable pricing if:

  • you don’t want to be tied into a contract
  • you understand your rates could change, with notice.

  • EasiPlan

    EasiPlan gives your business fixed energy rates for your electricity, so you know what rate you’ll pay for electricity each month. It protects your business from fluctuations with the electricity spot market prices, giving you more certainty over your business’ monthly bill amount.

  • Spot Market Plan

    With the Spot Market Plan, the price your business pays for energy is linked to prices in the wholesale electricity market (Spot Market). It works best if you actively manage your business’ energy spend and follow what’s happening in the market.

  • Proportional Pricing

    You set a percentage of your electricity use that’s charged at a fixed rate, with the balance being charged at the electricity Spot Market Rate plus an administration charge. You can select the level of risk that suits your business, with the added benefit of having some degree of price certainty.
