Competitive Alberta Electric Providers Offer Alternative Rates

In most areas of the province, energy consumers are given the option to choose from an array of competitive electric companies for their supply. This is because Alberta power is deregulated, meaning the government has unbundled energy services and opened the market to competition among alternative Alberta electric providers. These competitive energy providers offer a multitude of supply rates that could better fit the needs of an energy consumer. Competitive electric companies may even offer certain incentives such as plans that include renewable energy sources. While utility companies provide the delivery of the commodity and still offer Alberta power supply, one of the many competitive electric companies could have a well-suited rate for a consumer.

Competitive electric companies vs utility companies

Utility companies used to be Alberta power consumers' only option when it came to electric supply. Back in those days, there was no such thing as competitive Alberta electric companies. Alberta power consumers were limited to utility companies' regulated rates that vary with the market value of electricity. After the market became deregulated, Alberta power consumers were given options. An array of competitive electric companies popped up, all offering alternative supply rates. Alberta power consumers may still purchase their electricity supply from utility companies but competitive electric providers in Alberta could have a supply plan that works better for a home or business. Delivery still remains the responsibility of utility companies, no matter what company the electricity supply is purchased from, so there's no reason to worry about the quality of the service. It will be the same as it always was.

Find renewable energy in Canada

A lot of utility companies use nonrenewable fuels such as coal, natural gas or oil to produce energy. The downside to this is that fossil fuels are known to have environmental consequences. While consumers await more renewable energy sources in Canada, there are opportunities to lessen negative environmental impact. Now that Alberta power has been deregulated, the market is open to alternative electric companies. Some of these competitive electric companies offer plans that include purchasing renewable energy in Canada. While these renewable energy sources may not provide the electricity for the actual home that purchases them, the use of renewable resources will lessen a consumer's negative environmental contributions.
