Choosing a new energy plan: what does 'fixed' mean?
If you are shopping around for a new energy plan, you might see the word 'fixed' mentioned in advertising, on supplier or price comparison websites.
The word 'fixed' can refer to different things when it comes to energy plans. It is important to check what it means for the plan you are considering signing up to, or the plan you are currently on, so you can make an informed choice about your plan. The CRU notes that fixed term and fixed discount plans tend to be more common in the current Irish energy market, but there are typically few fixed rate plans on offer.
