Fixed Energy Purchasing

Fixed energy purchasing is the traditional type of energy procurement chosen by the majority of businesses in the UK. It provides the least amount of budgetary risk to businesses by agreeing on a fixed energy price upfront for the delivery of the contracted energy. Fixed price contracts, also known as forward contracts, are ideal for businesses who want to control energy costs but have a set budget. Businesses gain peace of mind, knowing exactly what their electricity rates will be for the duration of their contract.

Energy suppliers in the UK tend to offer fixed energy prices as an incentive with these contracts, as they know they are guaranteed your business for a set amount of time. Fixed business electricity prices are beneficial if market prices are fluctuating and you want stability in your outgoing funds.
