Electricity charges in Edmonton
At EPCOR, our electricity rates are made up of two parts – one for transmission and another for distribution. Let’s take a look at the transmission or System Access Service (SAS) rates first. Transmission rates
The transmission rate covers the cost of moving electricity from the various generators that are connected to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System to substations within EPCOR’s power grid. The cost of transmission EPCOR pays to the Alberta Electric System Operator is passed along to customers without mark-ups.
Sometimes customers see rate riders applied to their bills. These are applied when it’s necessary to either credit customers or collect from customers amounts paid to the Alberta Electric System Operator for transmission costs.
