You secure a set price-per-kWh during the designated contract term. It’s a common choice for businesses seeking budget certainty, and protects you from market volatility. However, it doesn’t give you the flexibility to benefit from reduced costs in declining markets.
You pay the varying market price of electricity for each 15 minutes. Quarterly fluctuation gives you the flexibility to adjust usage to take advantage of market dips and “off-peak” pricing (overnight hours). Layer portions of your usage to optimize or mitigate risk in the marketplace. However, the fluctuation makes it difficult for some businesses to accurately manage their costs.
You fix a certain volume of your usage at a specific rate, and leave the remaining portion on the market-based index rate for either Day Ahead or Real Time. Through index plus block, you can layer portions of your usage to optimize or mitigate risk in the marketplace.
Purchase your electricity at today’s market price, and secure that rate until the end of your current contract. With rates steadily on the rise, this option is preferred by many businesses, as it allows them to make the best financial decision for their business without having to worry about market volatility.
