Regulated Rate Option

The Regulated Rate Option (RRO) is an option for residential and small business customers who consume less than 250,000 kWh/year. If you have not entered into a contract with an electricity retailer, you are on the RRO.


Calgary


ENMAX Power Corporation is responsible for providing full electricity service to the City of Calgary.

For more information about the RRO rate, please visit www.ucahelps.alberta.ca or call 403-310-4822.

Other areas


In other areas of the province, such as Cardston, Ft. Macleod, Ponoka and Red Deer, the RRO rates are set by the applicable municipal government and the RRO service is provided by ENMAX Power Corporation.

Options

There are a number of things you can do to control your energy costs in your home or business.

If you are a Regulated Rate customer, you may choose to do nothing and remain on the Regulated Rate Option in the province. The RRO fluctuates monthly, so you can expect the amount you pay per kilowatt hour to change each month.

You may also select to enter into a contract with an energy retailer for a fixed price per kilowatt hour each month. There are a number of retailers to choose from. For a complete list of energy retailers in Alberta, please visit www.ucahelps.alberta.ca or call 403-310-4822.

Regulated Rate Fluctuations

ENMAX Power Corporation is responsible for providing full electricity service, including the supply of electricity to eligible customers that have not chosen to entere into a contract with a retailer.

ENMAX Energy Corporation administers this service on behalf of ENMAX Power Corporation.

The Regulated Rate Option (RRO) is offered to residential and small business customers who consume less than 250,000 kWh/year.

The Regulated Rate for electricity fluctuates every month to reflect changes in the wholesale electricity market using a process approved by the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC). By far, the biggest influence on the monthly rate is supply and demand.

Weather can also impact wind generation and the efficiency of coal-fired generating plants, thereby limiting the supply of electricity at a time of year when demand may be high.

The Regulated Rate also includes an electric energy charge, which is a fixed charge for costs related to the supply of electricity, and an administration charge for billing, customer care and administration.
