The Alberta government removed the rate cap (6.8¢/kWh) from the RRO on December 1, 2019.
The RRO, also known as the floating rate, can rise, fall or stay the same from month to month.
With the rate cap 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.
