Deregulation gives Alberta electricity consumers a choice

Prior to energy deregulation in Alberta, consumers did not have a choice when it came to their energy supply. They had to purchase it from the utility at rates regulated by the Alberta Utilities Commission. These regulated rates fluctuate with the market value of the energy and can change frequently, causing a consumer to have an expensive bill when the market value is high.

Deregulation began in the mid-1980s for natural gas and then the 1990s for electricity. By deregulating the energy market, the Alberta government opened it up for competition, which gives consumers a choice when it comes to their supply rates. Many competitive Alberta Electricity suppliers such as Burst Energy have entered the market, offering alternative supply rates that may be a more fitting option for a home or business.

Who to notify about a power outage

Just because a consumer is purchasing his or her supply from an alternative supplier doesn't mean that he or she should contact it in the event of a power outage or electrical emergency. Alternative suppliers only handle the retail portion of the energy business. A customer's utility remains the wire service provider and is therefore in charge of maintenance or repairs. To report a power outage in Alberta, contact the utility that bills you for distribution. In the event of a life-threatening power emergency, be sure to dial 9-1-1 before contacting the utility. is here to lend a hand
