Current rates and terms and conditions

The AUC ensures regulated customers receive safe and reliable service at just and reasonable rates.

Residential regulated rate option at a glance

Rates shown in the table below are the variable regulated energy charges per kilowatt-hour (kWh). The rates charged by competitive retailers will vary. For any rate class where the actual rate price is higher than 6.8¢/kWh (rate cap), customers are only charged 6.8¢/kWh.

Legislation has been introduced that, if passed, will end the price cap program for the regulated rate option (RRO), effective November 30, 2019.

If you're an RRO customer, you can stay on the RRO or choose to purchase your electricity from a competitive retailer. To learn more, use the Cost Comparison Tool found on the Utilities Consumer Advocate (UCA) website or contact the UCA at 310-4822 (toll free from anywhere in Alberta).

The table does not include other charges on your bill such as transmission, distribution and other rates applicable in your service area; this information is provided at the bottom of this page.
