​​Residential electricity rates

​In Alberta residential customers can select the type of electricity retailer and rate they prefer. There are two options to choose from:

  • Regulated rate option - with the RRO your electricity rate is reviewed and approved by the Alberta Utilities Commission and can fluctuate on a monthly basis.​​
  • Competitive retailer -  competitive retailers like Encor by EPCOR​ provide plans with variable or fixed electricity rates.

Regulated residential rates

Below are the regulated electricity rates and fees if you sign up with the residential RRO for your power service.​​​​​

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 Apr​il 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.
