​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 fluctating 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 more than 250 MWh 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.
