An ENMAX Power Corporation planner should get back to you quickly, usually within one business day. During this call, the planner will walk you through the next steps. The planning process can take 12 weeks or more, depending on the scope and location of the request.
An ENMAX Power Corporation inspector and electrical inspector may need to review your plans before you proceed. This must be completed before you can go ahead with any installation. We will let you know if this needs to happen.
To obtain the Site Identification Number, you must
complete a form and send it to ENMAX Power Corporation. For each site, you'll need to provide the address, service type and characteristics (volts, amps, phases and wire count) and permit number.
In Calgary, for a single family homes and duplexes, the building permit number is required. For condos, multi-family homes and commercial properties, the electrical permit number is required.
All services in Red Deer require the electrical permit.
Once a Site ID has been assigned to your service site, contact your chosen retailer and request to enroll your site. Your retailer will notify ENMAX that they're supplying electricity to your service and will submit a request to intall a meter on your behalf. As regulated by the province, enrollment transactions are processed at midnight. The next day, after the retailer receives notification that the enrollment is successful, they'll submit a request to have your site energized and a meter installed. If you have chosen the government Regulated Rate Option (RRO) you can submit a request to install a meter
To view a list of retailers you can visit the Alberta Government's
Customer Choice web site.
We're able to energize your service once we've received a successful enrollment and request for energy from your retailer.
ENMAX Power can't energize a site that hasn't been successfully enrolled by a retailer.
The timing required to obtain a Site ID and have the site enrolled by a retailer means that it's not possible to provide same-day service for energizing new sites. If you need energy at a new service on a particular day, please remember to obtain your site ID and choose a retailer in advance to prevent delays.
If you have any questions about this process, you can email
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.
