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. 

As of November 30, 2019, the Regulated Rate Option Rate Cap of 6.8 cents/kWh is no longer in effect after the Government of Alberta passed Bill 21. If you require further information about retail electricity rates, please refer to the Utilities Consumer Advocate website.

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.
