Clear Business Energy prices and tariffs
Clear Business Energy offers a range of fixed and variable tariffs for SMEs across the UK. Here are some of the key benefits in switching to a Clear Busines tariff:
- Fix your prices for up to 3 years
- No automatic rollover of contract
- Simple pricing structure means there are no hidden costs
- 100% green electricity
With a fixed-price tariff from Clear Business Energy, businesses can ensure they’re prices don’t change for three years.
When you come to the end of your tariff period, Clear Business offer standard variable rates if you don’t want to renew your contract.
This is a remarkable change from its previous fuel mix disclosure, which was predominantly natural gas (62.6%) and only 2.6% renewable energy.
