Fixed-rate plans in Victoria

A fixed-rate energy plan allows you to lock in your rate with a contract ranging from 12 to 36 months. During the length of your contract, your rates won’t fluctuate with the energy market. The good news is that you don’t have to worry about price hikes. However, you may have to pay an early termination fee (ETF) if you want to end your contract early.

Variable-rate plans in Victoria

Unlike a fixed-rate plan, a variable-rate energy plan doesn’t require you to enter into a contract, nor does it allow you to lock in your rate. Instead, your monthly energy rate is based on the current energy market. Some months, your rate will spike, and you’ll pay a higher electricity bill. However, during other months, you’ll save money. Common types of variable rate plans include no-deposit and prepaid plans.
