We understand businesses need to guard against rising energy costs. With SSE Protect, your wholesale energy prices and standing charges are fixed for your whole contract period, so you can budget with confidence.
SSE Protect gives you fully fixed prices for your total contract period.
The price your business pays for energy is made up of two groups of charges:
Non-commodity costs include charges for transporting electricity, government renewable energy initiatives and systems to ensure supply always matches demand.
Suppliers forecast future wholesale prices and non-commodity costs. But the actual rates can vary, and suppliers can pass these changes on to customers.
With SSE Protect, we not only fix your wholesale prices, but also protect you from any rises in existing non-commodity costs. With prices fixed from the outset, you can budget with certainty for the duration of your contract.
If complete price certainty is crucial for your business, SSE Protect may be for you.
If you’d like to fix your wholesale energy prices for longer, then SSE Choice may work better. With SSE Choice, while we do all we can to keep non-commodity costs stable, they may change.
