STEP1 Online gives businesses the power and tools to actively monitor the electricity market and take control of purchasing electricity online through progressive purchasing. 

Instead of agreeing 100% of your price upfront, lock in your electricity prices progressively over the contract period. It’s an alternative to fixed-price electricity contracting that helps you manage timing risk in the market. 

With STEP Online you can:


STEP Online vs Fixed price contracting

  • STEP Online

    Agree your electricity price progressively in parcels over the contract period and reduce the risk of contracting at a high point in the market. 

  • Fixed price contracting

    Agree electricity price upfront for the whole contract period based on market prices at the time of signing. This may be at a high point or a low point in the market.
