A flexible plan for daily optimisation and forecasting

With SSE Cash Out, you can optimise consumption and forecasting with real-time visibility of your energy usage. And by linking it to demand side response – SSE Virtual Power Plant, you can further reduce energy costs and earn additional revenue.

Why SSE Cash Out?

  • Fine-tune purchasing – full visibility of usage in real time to mitigate, or maximise, wholesale price fluctuations.
  • Optimise forecasting – combine your real-time energy usage and half-hourly energy prices for the following day to find ways to cut or increase consumption.
  • Earn extra revenue – optimise usage, on-site generation and sell energy back to the grid with SSE Virtual Power Plant.

How can a flexible plan help my business?

Our fully flexible plans allow you to buy underlying wholesale baseload power monthly, quarterly or in seasonal increments, reducing the risk of a single purchase.

That means you can manage risk and take control of buying patterns with the flexibility to reflect a change in strategy or performance.

Track and monitor the energy market and transact energy in near real time with SSE Foresight, our online energy trading portal – free for flexible plan customers. Or get real-time quotes to the live market through our over-the-counter traders.

Are you able to change how and when you consume or generate energy? Do you have energy storage facilities?

If so, you could access valuable new revenue streams with SSE Virtual Power Plant (VPP). VPP knits together various distributed energy resources to maximise the value of your energy assets.

Whether you want to provide ancillary services to National Grid, reduce costs by avoiding TRIADs, or actively participate in the wholesale electricity markets, VPP unlocks the full potential of your energy flexibility.

  1. All our renewable electricity is sourced from wind and hydro assets wholly or partly owned by SSE Renewables, our sister company in the SSE Group. With SSE renewable electricity, you’ll continue to get your electricity through the national grid as normal, and we’ll match your consumption to REGOs from the SSE Group’s generating assets.
