During the current pandemic, the last thing you need is more uncertainty. The situation has highlighted fractures in many systems, but it has also revealed opportunities.
Countless businesses have found creative ways to continue serving their customers while practicing social distancing. Ironically, being forced apart has made us more aware of customer needs and how to meet them.
As a retail energy supplier we understand people’s concern over keeping the lights on during this pandemic. While we’re under quarantine sheltering in place at home the kilowatt-hours add up. One thing we suppliers have to offer is fixed rate energy plans.
Why Fixed Rates Are Ideal During Quarantine (and After)
One of the positive changes that has come from energy deregulation is variety. Consumers used to be forced to choose between a couple of options or had no options at all when there was a sole electric and gas provider.
Now you can find a huge selection of energy plans with features for every lifestyle. One of the most important options is whether or not the rate is fixed. A fixed rate is set and doesn’t change. Every kilowatt-hour costs the same no matter what. On the other hand, a variable rate fluctuates based on a number of factors.
During a time when there are a lot of unknowns, your energy costs shouldn’t be one of them. Here are just a few reasons why you may want to consider switching to a fixed-rate plan if you don’t have one already.
More Predictable Monthly Expenses
No two energy bills are exactly the same, but with fixed-rate monthly expenses are much more predictable. A fairly consistent monthly cost is usually the biggest advantage of choosing a fixed-rate plan.
No Need to Adjust Energy Use
You may not have to adjust energy use to get lower energy costs when you have a fixed rate plan. Conversely, people who are on a time-of-use plan with variable rates throughout the day have to be more conscious about when they are using energy to avoid high rates during peak hours.
It Can Be Less Volatile
There are some advantages to a fixed-rate energy plan. For example, if the cost of gas or electricity goes up you won’t be affected because your rate is locked in for the term of your agreement.
