Frequently Asked Questions

What Are The Advantages Of Fixed Pricing, Otherwise Known As Hedging?

Fixed pricing ensures that you purchase energy for a fixed price. This allows your company to set an annual energy budget. Fixed pricing also allows you to capitalize on dips in market by committing to purchase energy in the future at that lower rate. Often people believe they are ‘gambling’ or speculating by locking in a fixed price for future consumption. In fact, what many people do not realize is that they actually are speculating when they do not lock in a fixed price for energy by leaving themselves vulnerable and unprotected to the movements of the market.
