Why your electricity bill may be higher for May.

As a commodity, the price you pay for electricity can rise and fall based on factors that affect supply and demand.

This month, 12-days of transmission line maintenance is planned at two generation plants. As a result, there will be an almost 50 per cent decrease in electricity production from these plants. This anticipated drop in output will cause Alberta's Regulated Rate Option prices to be higher.

Here are some tips for how you can control your electricity usage.

I am a Regulated Rate option customer

(This will be your choice if you have not chosen a competitive retailer.)

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.
