Rural Electrification Associations

In Alberta, Rural Electrification Associations (REAs) provide power for groups in rural communities who are members of a cooperative.

Most REAs started in the 1940s as farmer-owned co-ops. We have a long history with REAs of delivering local service combined with a strong network of province-wide support, and today we still service several of them, including:

  • Armena
  • Duffield
  • Drayton Valley
  • Ermineskin
  • Lindale
  • Mayerthorpe
  • Montana
  • Niton
  • Peigan Indian
  • Stony Plain
  • West Liberty
  • West Wetaskiwin

Here are a few advantages we offer REAs:

  • Outage management, including real-time updates and online reporting
  • Increased service reliability, thanks to ongoing reviews of our systems
  • A talented team of technicians, ready to go at any time
  • Accurate billing via automated meters

If you’re part of an REA and interested in working with FortisAlberta, call us at 310-WIRE (9473).
