Winter Hedging Strategy

The Winter Hedging Strategy is an aggregated solution that leverages plan participants’ combined usage to secure the best possible hedges to manage risk against historic winter-related market spikes, while retaining the benefits of an individual index-based program the rest of the year.

Key Benefits

  • Manage risk against winter energy spikes along with the advantage of lower market prices during the rest of the year
  • Aggregated around-the-clock (ATC), energy-only fixed pricing for winter months (December, January, February & March)
  • 100% variable hourly index-based individual pricing during April 1st through November 30th each year
  • Capacity, ancillaries, renewables, and administrative components are passed through for the duration of the Plan
