Preparing for the carbon levy

The Alberta government’s new carbon levy will come into effect on January 1, 2017. The levy applies to natural gas and other fuels, such as diesel, gasoline and propane.

All customers are free to purchase natural gas services from the default supply provider or from a retailer of their choice and to purchase electricity services from the regulated rate provider or from a retailer of their choice. The delivery of natural gas and electricity to you is not affected by your choice. If you change who you purchase natural gas services or electricity services from, you will continue receiving natural gas and electricity from the distribution company in your service area.
