The Progressive Procurement product allows a flexible approach to electricity procurement

  • Allows for prevailing market conditions to apply

Progressive Procurement works on a forward price hedging strategy procuring load lots per quarter of the year at prevailing wholesale prices. Hedging purchases are averaged per quarter then converted into peak & off-peak tariffs for that quarter

5 Key Reasons to be on a Progressive Procurement Energy Contract
 
Viewed as better practice generally – a lower risk with better Governance
    1. Variable energy & environmental certificate price linked to the market, not to one point in time
    2. Allows for sound, science-based purchasing decision making
    3. Ensures continual focus on energy within your business
    4. PA does the heavy lifting – Members can be active or passive in the program apply
