Your responsibilities as a retailer

As described in the Settlement System Code (AUC Rule 021), retailers and regulated rate providers are responsible for enrollment, including informing ENMAX Power Corporation that they've been chosen as the supplier of electricity services at a particular site. Enrollment is supported through the standard transactions described in the Settlement System Code.

Retailers may request the following services:

  • Energizing/re-energizing sites
  • De-energizing sites (de-energizing a site for financial reasons may only be performed by the applicable site's Default Supplier or the Regulated Rate Option Retailer)
  • Exchanging/upgrading meters
  • Testing meters
  • Reading meters off-cycle

A complete list of services and their associated fees are located in the Fee Schedule of ENMAX Power Corporation's Terms and Conditions. Retailers are financially responsible for all service requests made on behalf of their end use customers. ENMAX Power Corporation will invoice retailers for these services on a monthly basis.
