A fixed contract is great for a small business with a set budget for utilities. This gives you a set unit price for your energy that will stay the same for up to 5 years (no matter what happens in the market). The more energy efficient you are, the lower your bills stay.
This contract gives you the stability of fixed prices throughout the length of your contract but also the flexibility to take advantage of falling market prices. This is perfect for small businesses who want budget certainty but would happily extend their contracts if the price drops.
Pass Through contracts will fix the wholesale price of your energy, however all other non-commodity costs will be variable based on your usage. Manufacturers could benefit from this contract as they are more likely to have the flexibility to alter when they use energy.
Flexible contracts are a lot more complicated and are made for large businesses in a position to trade in a constantly changing energy market. These contracts rely on the ability to understand the energy market and to buy and sell energy, taking risks where needed.
Green (renewable) Energy differs from brown energy in that it comes from natural sources such as plants and sunlight rather than fossil fuels. This is a great contract for businesses that want to become more sustainable as we work with suppliers of 100% renewable energy.
There’s many different scenarios that could lead to your business having low/no credit, such as opening a brand new business or being in a risky sector such as pubs and clubs. We work with many suppliers that can help you, even if you’ve been refused a contract elsewhere.
Don’t forget, we’re still on hand to help you make the final decision. Just give us a call on 0330 303 3303 and we’ll jump straight to it.
