​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 ​Alberta Government has passed legislation and set a temporary price ceiling on the RRO of 13.5 cents per kilowatt hour (kw/h). This rate will apply as the rate for the months of January, February and March 2023.

Any costs above this rate ceiling will be deferred and repaid by RRO customers between April 2023 and December 2024. Details on repayment will be shared as they become available from the provincial government.​​

Visit the Government of Alberta​ website for more information on the RRO price ceiling.
