​Fixed and floating natural gas rates explained

Fixed natural gas rates

Fixed natural gas rates in Alberta are a stable natural gas price option that provides predictability 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. However, your unit price won't. Natural gas fixed prices for fixed rate energy plans are based on a competitive per gigajoule (GJ) rate.

 

Is the fixed natural gas rate plan right for me?

Fixed rate vs variable rate gas plans are ideal if you want to minimize changes/fluctuations in your energy charges from month to month. But because future prices and consumption are unknown, extra risk margin is built into fixed rates to cover retailer costs.

Floating (variable) natural gas rates

A floating gas rate in Alberta 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.

 

Is the floating (variable) natural gas rate plan right for me?

Variable vs fixed rate gas plans are ideal if you prefer to pay the market rate and keep watch on price increases and decreases.  Since you're following the rise and fall of the market, your bill will change month to month.  You can choose to switch to a fixed rate plan at any time.
