Electricity Provision in the FENN REA Service Area
The following options are available to members of the FENN REA.
Regulated Rate Option (RRO): The RRO is a monthly default electricity rate automatically provided to all eligible customers who have not entered into an electricity provision contract with a competitive retailer. It is important to understand that the RRO is not a ‘regulated’ rate rather it is reflective of the current price to purchase electricity and it may increase or decrease at will. Anyone who consumes less than 250,000 kilowatt hours per year is eligible for the RRO.
Retail Electricity Contracts: If you wish to sign a contract you may contact the current electricity retailer providers serving our area and offering contracts. For a list of electricity providers contact the Utilities Consumer Advocate via phone (in Alberta): 310-4-UCA (310-4822) or www.ucahelps.alberta.ca or reference the list below.
If you are not signed up with a retailer electricity provider serving the FENN REA service area, then you automatically default to the RRO (Regulated Rate Option), which does fluctuate on a monthly basis.
The delivery of electricity to you is not affected by your choice. If you change who you purchase electricity services from, you will continue receiving electricity from the distribution company in your service area.
