The delivery of electricity to your home or business is a fully regulated service whether you choose the regulated rate option, or purchase your energy through a competitive retailer.
FortisAlberta is an electricity distribution provider, not a billing company (retailer). Customers in Alberta are free to purchase natural gas services or electricity services from a retailer of their choice. For a list of retailers, visit ucahelps.alberta.ca or call 310-4822 (toll free in Alberta).
Under the regulated service, as an electricity distribution provider that supplies electricity to customers within a specific service area, each year, we apply to the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) for approval of our rates. Rates can change throughout the year. The AUC further explains the industry breakdown here.
