​​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.
