Self-Retail Options  

Who should choose self-retail?

Self-retail clients tend to be larger electricity consumers with usage greater than 2 MWs (1500 MWh/month) through a single industrial site or a number of sites in aggregate.

As a self-retailer, you:

  • Should be comfortable with commodity transactions and in dealing with multiple counterparties
  • Have a strong credit rating or are willing to post credit (Letter of Credit) with the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO), Wires Service Provider (WSP) and wholesale market participants


Why choose our self-retail option?

As a self-retailer, you must arrange for all of the necessary services that an electricity retailer provides to its customers. This can be time consuming and complex. Our Enhanced Energy Services team can help by:

  • Assisting you to be set-up as a self-retailer with the AESO and WSPs, and acting as settlement agent for your facilities
    • Receiving and reconciling load data from the AESO and the WSPs
    • Providing detailed customized cost allocation statements for invoices at a site level
  • Assisting with most aspects of the management of your electricity cost and usage
    • Daily and monthly electricity market reports
    • Billing audits and reconciliations
    • Budget, rate and contract analysis
    • Assistance with new service connections
    • Facilitating field and head office personnel with WSP interactions
  • Providing electronic files for easy uploading to your financial ledger system (if required)
