TransCanada Alberta Power Marketing: Electricity load following plans

Electricity Load Following Plans

Load Following Plans provide a fixed price of electricity for the entire variable volume of power used each hour. This plan protects from price fluctuations in the market and usage variability within tailored specified +/- consumption bands.

Benefits:

  • Rate, price and budget certainty in a volatile market
  • Minimal exposure to spot market
  • Flexibility for changes in usage
  • Minimal work for the customer

Fixed/Structured Block Plans

Our Fixed/Structured Block Plans, offered both physically or financially, involve a fixed price for a fixed predetermined volume of power, based on historical consumption. Exposure to spot-market volatility can be tailored, and any over/underage is credited to the average monthly spot price. Examples of blocks available include, but are not limited to, 7×24, 7×16 on-peak and 5×13 on-peak. Block products are ideal for base-load or flat consumption profiles or those with lower tolerance to volatility.

Benefits:

  • Relatively low risk with limited exposure, with flexibility
  • Price and budget certainty for majority of load
  • Don’t have to commit to more than necessary
  • Customizable with different blocks — add layers of blocks to cover core usage
  • Flexibility to buy additional electricity

Heat Rate Swap Plans

Heat Rate is typically used as a measure of a generator’s efficiency in turning fuel into energy. As a Swap, the buyer of the Heat Rate agrees to buy power at a price specified by the ratio of two commodity prices.

Heat Rates can also be settled physically, whereby the buyer delivers physical gas in exchange for physical power at the contract ratio.
