That’s electricity to 544,000 residential, farm and business customers like you from across central and southern Alberta. We operate in 200 communities with more than 122,000 kilometres of power lines.

We may build electrical lines and poles, install transformers and read meters, but really what we do is make every day easier for you. Your safety and our reliability drive everything we do.
