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 in aggregate through consolidation of a number of meters.

As a Self-Retailer, you are:

  • 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. With ENMAX Commercial Services Inc., we can help by:

  • Assisting you to be set-up as a self-retailer with the AESO and WSPs, and acting as your settlement agent for your facilities
    • Receive and reconcile load data from the AESO and the WSPs
    • Provide detailed customized cost allocation statements for invoices at a site level
  • Assisting with virtually every aspect 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
    • Facilitation with field and head office personnel and WSPs
  • Providing electronic files for easy uploading to your financial ledger system

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.
