What Are Out-of-Contract Rates?

Out-of-contract rates are the prices your business pays for energy after your existing deal expires, and before securing a new one. These rates are generally higher, underscoring the importance of moving to a competitive contract without delay.


When Are You Charged Out-of-Contract Rates by SSE?

Your business will encounter out-of-contract rates with SSE under the following circumstances:

  • Your existing tariff concludes, and you have not entered into a new agreement.

  • You commence energy consumption at a new location without establishing a contract.

  • Your agreement with SSE concludes or is terminated, and it is not renewed.
