SSE business electricity rates and tariffs
As with most major utility companies, SSE has energy rates and tariffs to suit a broad range of commercial needs. Choose from fixed-rate tariffs, variable rate tariffs, and deemed rates.
If you're unsure what your tariff should be, contact them to find out, they can run a diagnostic on your company and give you an idea of what you currently pay.
This will help you make the most intelligent decision when taking on a new utility deal.
SSE offers fixed-rate tariffs that are particularly useful to small businesses. With a fixed-rate tariff, you always know what your bills will total which helps you forecast more accurately and stabilises your company.
All fixed price tariffs come with 100% renewable electricity as standard.
With a fixed price 2-year utility deal, you are guaranteed no price rises for the duration of your agreement - you get fixed unit prices and non-commodity costs.
These fixed prices are available for up to four years. You also receive a smart thermostat, a smart meter, and 100% SSE renewables. There is usually an early exit fee on fixed-price utilities.
If the idea of a fixed agreement with an exit fee doesn't appeal to you, it might be better to opt for a variable rate agreement. SSE has energy offers for variable rates suitable for those wishing to optimise their power to suit daily usage costs.
A variable-rate supply lets you buy your commercial energy in increments to adjust your consumption and costs helping you streamline your company and improve your bottom line - this is based around a 100% renewable gas and electricity supply.
With a fully flexible rate, you will notice your gas and electricity unit price rising and falling with each passing month. This is at the discretion of your supplier and is usually based on supply costs.
With SSE you get access to live market prices for transparency and to help with cost control.
Deemed or out of contract rates
SSE also has deemed or out-of-contract rates for companies that have failed to renew their utility agreements, this can happen when a company is moving premises.
Since no deal is agreed on utilities, you shift to a default charge.
If your utilities are supplied by SSE Energy, they will charge you their variable company rates until you contact them and arrange a suitable deal.
