The AUC is self-funded through participants of the sector we regulate and does not receive tax dollars
The AUC does not receive any government funding. The AUC’s operations are 100 per cent funded by Alberta industry participants and ratepayers through an administration fee on Alberta’s utilities and the independent system operator. With a keen focus on continuously lowering the cost of regulation for ratepayers, the AUC has reduced its Treasury Board approved administration fee by 19.3 per cent since 2014-2015, including a 12.5 per cent reduction over the past three years.
Since its inception in 2008, the AUC continuously tracks and benchmarks its administration fee as a unit measure per customer utility site. Since 2008, the AUC’s cost of regulation has declined to $8.56 per regulated site (a 34.8 per cent reduction). In 2008 the cost of regulation was $13.13 per regulated site. Since 2008, the number of regulated sites in Alberta rose 31 per cent to approximately 3.2 million sites.
Administration fees are determined in two portions for the AUC’s fiscal year, which is from April 1 to March 31. The first determination occurs in April and represents 75 percent of the AUC’s estimated expenditures. The second determination represents the remaining three months of the AUC’s fiscal year and occurs in December.
