No problem - you’re free to leave FIXIE at any stage! But you do need to be aware that there’s an early exit fee associated with breaking your 6-month FIXIE contract. That’s because, as we mentioned above, when you join FIXIE, the generation price we can pass on to you is based on a 6-month commitment. Put simply: we’ve bought 6 months’ power for you in advance, and you’re paying us for that over the course of your contract.
But, as y’all know, we’re 100 percent against unfair break fees - it’s not how we want to make our money. So here’s the deal: if you opt out of FIXIE, we’ll charge you $10 (excluding GST) for each month until the end of your 6-month contract. That means if you leave FIXIE with 4-months still on your contract, you’ll be charged an early exit fee of $40 plus GST, for example.
How’ve we worked this one out? Easy. Each month you’re on FIXIE, you’re paying us for the power we’ve already bought for you. So the longer you stay on FIXIE (and the closer it gets to the end of your 6-month contract), the cheaper it gets for us if you decide to opt out. After all, it’s only fair.
