​Choose your power

In Alberta, you have the power to choose how you buy electricity. Typically, you have 2 options: you can sign up with a competitive retailer, like Encor by EPCOR, or you can choose to stay on the regulated rate option (RRO). It's up to you!

Encor Energy Plans

Life with Encor has its perks. And it's easy. We've got promotions made just for you and no obligation natural gas, electricity and green energy plans.

Sign up with Encor

Regulated Rate Option

If you choose not to sign up with a competitive retailer, you'll be defaulted to the regulated rate option (RRO). The RRO is an electricity rate that reflects the current market price, so it changes every month. This rate is reviewed and approved by the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC).

Sign up for the RRO


About fair competition

All customers are free to purchase natural gas services from the default supply provider or from a retailer of their choice and to purchase electricity services from the regulated rate provider or from a retailer of their choice. The delivery of natural gas and electricity to you is not affected by your choice. If you change who you purchase natural gas services or electricity services from, you will continue receiving natural gas and electricity from the distribution company in your service area. For a current list of retailers you may choose from, visit or call 310-4822 (toll free in Alberta). Some offers, in whole or in part, may not be available in gas co-ops, municipally owned utilities, and some Rural Electrification Associations.
