In Ontario, the Global Adjustment more often than not has been the highest overall cost on your electricity bill.   No hedging program can restrict the GA monthly volatility as it moves inversely with monthly electricity rate changes.  However the GA is based on your monthly electricity consumption, so by lowering your overall energy use you can have a huge impact on your yearly costs!

Electricity and Natural Gas Contracts are similar to buying insurance, a fixed rate will hedge you against unforeseen environmental or political events which can cause significant rate fluctuations.  For larger volume businesses, this price certainty ensures rate swings will not affect your profitability by increasing your overhead.  We can provide a business with short or long term options, variable or fixed rates for both electricity and natural gas.  Even our variable rates can offer unique savings from utility rates for the right size customer in the right environment, use Energizecorp to inform you how these products can work well for your business cycles.  For electricity, there are further options with Blocks 24/7 or just during the peak hours when rates are most volatile.

Why Hedging Rates is Important

A hedging program works extremely well in an environment where electricity is not oversupplied and electricity rates continue to climb higher.  In these environments, capping your peak rates or overall rate will allow you a double win on your energy bill!  Both holding electricity rates from moving higher while at the same time the Global Adjustment is inversely dropping lower.  Without this hedge any lowering of the Global Adjustment will be offset by the inverse rise of your electricity rates.  And since rate behavior is largely unpredictable, you need to have a hedge in place to take advantage of these monthly changes.

Hedging is simply good risk management and especially important for companies with larger energy use at stake, a tool more large volume business now use for rate stability.   When used as a budgeting tool, a proper hedge provides peace of mind and stabilizes your profits with predictability.
