What are tariffs, and how does it affect my business electric rates? 

Tariffs are the amounts charged by your business electricity provider according to your contract. There are two types of tariffs: fixed and variable. To better understand the breakdown of your power bill, you’ll have to take note of the differences between the two. 

Fixed tariff 

Also known as ‘service to property charge’ or ‘ daily supply charge’, the fixed tariff is not based on how much energy you use. Rather, it appears as a set cost for a certain period. If you signed for a fixed tariff, your business electricity rates will remain unchanged for the duration of your contract.

Variable tariff

Also referred to as the ‘consumption charge’, the variable tariff fluctuates based on the amount of electricity your business uses. Instead of having a fixed charge within a certain period, this tariff is calculated by measuring the electricity units you’ve used. This is listed on your electricity bill as cents per kilowatt-hour (c/kWh).

These two types of tariffs are found in business electricity plans. For a customised list of electricity companies that provide competitively priced tariffs, reach out to us at Make it Cheaper. We’ll analyse your current power bill, reference your National Metre Identifier (NMI) number, and then recommend reliable retailers for a stress-free business energy comparison. 

What fees and charges should I be aware of before signing a business energy contract? 

Business electric rates also include other fees and charges that may not be immediately apparent when you compare business electricity prices. Before signing a contract, make sure you consider factors like the transaction fee, setup fee, cancellation fee, and overdue payment fee. 

  • Transaction fee. This is the charge that may be implemented when you pay through certain credit card options. 
  • Setup fee. This is the charge related to establishing the energy contract and subsequent plan. 
  • Cancellation fee. This is the charge that may be incurred should the contract be terminated before the scheduled expiration date. 
  • Overdue payment fee. This is the charge you may incur if you fail to pay your large or small business electricity rates on time.
