Hedging with base load futures
This tool is designed to allow you to simulate the outcomes of purchasing electricity futures contracts. It describes the role futures contracts may play for either a retailer or an industrial consumer. The retailer would adopt a strategy that achieves some price certainty, so their purchase cost remains lower than the price they are charging customers. The industrial consumer would likely have a budget for electricity and would wish to ensure they stay within that budget.
