Electricity Provision in the West Wetaskiwin REA Service Area
The following options are available to members of the West Wetaskiwin REA.
Regulated Rate Option (RRO): The RRO is a monthly default electricity rate automatically provided to all eligible customers who have not entered into a 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.
Contracts: If you wish to sign a contract you may contact the current electricity retailers serving our area and offering contracts. See below for a current list of electricity providers.
West Wetaskiwin REA encourages members who are considering electricity contracts to ensure that you understand the terms and conditions, as they are not consistent with every company. If you want additional information, contact the Utilities Consumer Advocate (toll-free: 310-4822 or www.ucahelps.alberta.ca).
If you are not signed up with a retailer serving the West Wetaskiwin REA service area, then you automatically default to the RRO (Regulated Rate Option), which does fluctuate on a monthly basis.
Your electrical distribution system provider will always be the West Wetaskiwin REA, regardless of who supplies your electricity. Members will not be disadvantaged in any way based on their retailer choice. For a list of energy retailers, contact the Utilities Consumer Advocate: In Alberta, dial 310-4-UCA (310-4822) or www.ucahelps.alberta.ca
