Discover Link Energy in Alberta

Link Energy is an electricity marketer that serves both Canada and the United States. Its formal mission is to "power consumers and empower communities." It does the latter by donating a portion of its profits to local charities. According to its website, Link Energy became an Alberta energy marketer to give the residents more choices when it comes to their energy supply. It claims that, in recent times, not many companies are participating in Alberta's electricity market; therefore, it started marketing to create more competition for consumers.

Link Energy electricity rates

Commercial customers are offered two types of Link Energy electricity rates. This marketer lets businesses choose between Link Flex , its floating supply rate, and Link Firm, a fixed supply rate plan. Fixed supply rates are best for businesses that would like to protect themselves against fluctuating electricity rates. These plans allow customers to set up a price agreement for an allotted amount of time. No matter the time of year, customers on this plan will pay the same amount per kWh for the duration of their plan.

Link Energy also offers residential customers both  floating and fixed rates. These plans also are called Link Flex and Link Firm.

What Alberta energy deregulation can do for you

Before deregulation, Alberta energy customers were limited to energy supply from the utility in their area. Because of this, when the market was regulated, customers had only one option when it came to their supply rates. Deregulation came about in the mid-1980s when the gas market opened up. Close to 10 years later, the electricity market became deregulated, as well.

As each market opened up, it allowed independent companies to form as Alberta energy marketers. Alberta energy marketers have the ability to purchase supply at wholesale from the generators and sell it to consumers at alternative rates. These marketers give customers the option to choose from a variety of alternative supply rates, whether they are floating, fixed or a flat monthly fee within a certain kWh or GJ range.

If you're tired of your current supply rates, start by using to research what's available in your area. Then, give us a ring to discuss rates. In a deregulated market, you have the ability to choose. Why not have the best plan for you?
