Fixed and floating rates explained

Fixed rates

A fixed rate option that provides the predictability and peace of mind of a stable price throughout the term of your energy plan. While the market fluctuates, your price remains constant. Because your consumption varies from month to month, your energy charge will too. Reassuringly, your unit price won't. 

Floating rates

A floating rate is based on market prices, so the rate for a month is determined after the month has passed. So while the billing will come in a bit later, all the same benefits of Encor apply. With our floating plans, you always pay the market rate.
