Fixed vs. Variable Rates – Which One Should You Choose?

Georgia natural gas marketers typically offer two types of rate plans – “fixed” or “variable.”

  • A fixed rate plan is for the planner in you. It guarantees a specific price-per-therm when you commit to a contract, typically between 6 and 24 months long. As natural gas prices fluctuate in the market, your fixed rate may be higher or lower than the variable rate. The upside is your per therm rate stays stable, and you don’t run the risk of an unexpected price increase.
  • A variable rate plan, on the other hand, is for the part of you that likes to live on the edge. It doesn’t require a contract, so you can cancel without penalty anytime. But, your price-per-therm in any given month will fluctuate with the market price of natural gas. Depending on natural gas prices at the time, this could decrease or increase your bill.
