Even though the rate can go up or down based on market conditions, the RRO is capped so you won't be charged more than 6.8¢ per kWh for electricity (other fees will apply).  

Apply for the RRO

Regulated Rate Option (RRO) in Calgary

Regulated Rate Fluctuations

Even if your usage stays the same from month to month, your bill can go up or down.

The RRO can be referred to as a floating or variable rate. Similar to floating or variable mortgages or loans, this means the RRO rate can change from month to month.

The RRO price changes because of factors like weather, plant maintenance, and the cost of fuel. However, because the RRO is capped, it will not go higher than 6.8¢ per kWh (other fees will apply).
