Fixed price energy contracts
A fixed price energy contract is the simplest way to secure your energy prices. It places emphasis on searching for market lows and provides price certainty once a contract is secured.
Adopting the most appropriate purchasing strategy for your business helps you to manage risk effectively and is an important step in taking control of your energy costs.
In our experience, this is the ideal solution for small to mid-sized businesses with lower energy spends, who want to achieve greater value by focusing on the timing of a single purchase.
