Fixed vs variable pricing

Fixed pricing

With fixed pricing, your rates/charges are fixed 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 charges, like network charges and government and regulatory charges may change.

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

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. *terms and conditions apply

For more information, read our Fixed Energy Plan terms and conditions which will apply if you choose a fixed energy plan.

Variable pricing

With variable pricing, you have no fixed term contract. We will give you 30 days’ notice of any change in electricity price.

Not all of our plans offer variable pricing.

Choose variable pricing if:

  • you don’t want to be tied into a contract
  • you’re happy for your rates to change (with 30 days’ notice).

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