Regulated Rate Option Cap

The Alberta government announced plans to end the rate cap (6.8¢/kWh) on the RRO effective November 30, 2019.

The RRO, also known as the floating rate, can rise, fall or stay the same from month to month.

After the rate cap is removed, the RRO price you pay may see greater swings.

You can review historical RRO costs including what the cost would have been without the rate cap in the charts below *

*Some conditions, administration fees, delivery fees, taxes, and other charges beyond the electricity rate also apply. See the Regulated Rate Option page for more details.

Months when the rate cap was in effect are listed below.


Historical rates are not indicative of future electricity rates.
