​Commercial rate options

​There are a few options customers have for commercial electricity rates and their power retailer.

  • The commercial regulated rate option - if your business consumes less than 250 MWh of electricity in a year, and you prefer a month to month option with fluctuating rates. The regulated rate is reviewed and approved by the Alberta Utilities Commission.
  • ​Competitive retailer - you can choose to work​ with a competitive retailer like Encor by EPCOR rather than choose a regulated rate option.
  • Default supply service - if your business consumes 250 MWh or more of electricity per year and you don't sign with a competitive retailer,​ you'll be enrolled for Default supply service. Learn more about Default supply service.

Commercial RRO

Below are the historic and current monthly electricity rates and fees for commercial regulated rate customers.

The Government of Alberta passed legislation under the Regulated Rate Option Stability Act that implemented a temporary price ceiling of 13.5 ¢/kWh on the Regulated Rate Option (RRO) from January - March 2023.

The GOA legislation requires RRO providers (including EPCOR) to recover the actual cost of the electricity above the price ceiling and these amounts will be applied to RRO customer bills from April 2023 – December 2024. Beginning April 2023, RRO customers will see the deferral rate and electricity rate below as one line item included in the "electricity charge" on page 2 of their bills.
