PE (formerly Pozitive Energy) Out of Contract Rates

Prices correct as of 18/03/2024

Introduction: In the ever-changing landscape of the energy market, understanding the intricacies of your utility contract is pivotal. It's not just about getting the best rates; it's about knowing what happens when those contracts expire. Today, we're spotlighting the often-overlooked, yet costly, Out of Contract (OOC) rates, with a focus on PE Energy.

The Hidden Costs of PE Energy's Out of Contract Rates:

When your energy contract concludes, and you haven't yet secured a new deal or renewal, you enter the OOC rate period. During this time, PE charges rates considerably higher than your regular contract, leading to an unexpected rise in energy costs.

PE Energy's Current Out of Contract Rates

As your business plans ahead, it's crucial to stay informed about upcoming changes to energy rates. PE Energy's Out of Contract and Deemed Rates are set to increase from 1st April 2024. Here’s what you need to know about the new rates as electric set to increase by 42.86 and gas by 50%!!(exclusive of VAT):

Standard Out of Contract & Deemed Rate

(exclusive of VAT)

Prices from 01/04/2024

Standing Charge (pence/Day)

From 01/01/2024 up to 31/03/2024, Electricity is charged at 35p/kWh with Gas charged at 8p/kWh! Standing charge remains at £1.50 per Day.

The Impact of Not Acting Promptly:

Delaying the renewal of your energy contract could lead to your business paying these increased OOC rates. For instance, a business on a standard electricity tariff could see their unit rate costs reduce under the new rates, whereas gas prices show a decrease per kWh. However, considering the market's volatility, these rates could fluctuate further, and the risk of paying more than necessary increases the longer you remain out of contract.
