Description of the Plan Types
Fixed rate plans
A fixed rate is a rate whose price (in ¢/kWh) does not change over the whole period of the contract. Once the contract is finished, unless you renew it or terminate it, it will automatically switch to a variable rate.

Customers report that they appreciate savings on fixed rate electricity plans from Amigo Energy. Fixed rate plans can often be a good deal if you are able to lock in a good rate at the right time of year.
Electricity customers should opt for fixed rate contracts of at least 12 months. Electricity prices per kilowatt-hour fluctuate throughout the year, and you may actually lose money by not being able to take advantage of prices when they are low. However, because electricity prices tend to increase over time, locking in fixed rates for longer periods may prove advantageous and deliver savings.
Variable rate plans
A variable rate is a rate whose price (in ¢/kWh) varies each month. A variable can be at the discretion of the supplier, or the supplier can give rules on the variability of their rate. For more information about what a variable rate is: /energy-markets/variable-rate-plans-for-electricity-and-gas
With/without Base Charges
Customers considering Amigo Energy should keep in mind that minimum usage charges may apply, along with an escalated tier-pricing structure, and so lower consumption may actually result in a higher bill at certain consumption points.
Green Energy Plans
Amigo Energy does not offer 100% truly green energy plans because they include natural gas. The 10.8% renewable content of Amigo Energy plans matches the state average of 10.7%.
