Half-hourly business out-of-contract electricity rates

These are the electricity rates for half-hourly business customers whose contract ends without being renewed, or who are new tenants in a half-hourly site.

Because of the uncertainty around not purchasing energy in advance, our out-of-contract rates tend to be higher than our fixed contract rates.

Variable rates are not fixed, and so can change at any time. We will always give affected customers reasonable notice of a price change.

As with all of our products, the electricity we supply to half-hourly customers is 100% renewable.

New rates (from 1st August 2023)

All half-hourly out of contract rates are changing on 1st August 2023.

This price sheet contains all new rates, arranged by GSP, voltage level (excluding extra high voltage) and residual band.

If you manage an extra high voltage site, get in touch to find out what your specific rates would be.

Please note: all prices exclude VAT and CCL.
