Time-sensitivity Unlike certain other commodities, electricity and its pricing in various areas can be extremely volatile. As electricity markets have deregulated, the price controls that characterized traditional, and in most cases cost- based, utility tariff pricing have been replaced with prices that, for the most part, represent a combination of factors. This combination defines the market price for electricity, in general, and can include time-of-day, season, location, and expected changes in the costs of fuels used by electric generators In the production of electricity. It's never wise to wait until the end of your current contract to start looking for a new one, the same way you wouldn't wait until a stock rises to buy it. At that juncture, you're at the mercy of what the market dictates with no manuverability.
Commoditization Electricity is a traded commodity, much like other commodities such as oil, gold, and coffee beans. The wholesale electricity price is driven by analysts’ perspectives on the relationship between supply (how much is readily available and at what cost) and demand (how much is required now and in the future).
Analysts’ perceptions are based on their assessment of many factors that influence supply and demand. These factors include:
- Changes to prices of related commodities such as oil
- Short- and long-term weather forecasts
- International events such as natural disasters
- International politics
