MORE ABOUT BUYING NATURAL GAS

Regulated vs. deregulated charges


Alberta Utility Source saves you money on energy and administration charges

Did you know that some of the charges you see on your utility bills are regulated by the provincial government and others are deregulated?

Regulated charges are beyond the control of energy marketers such as Alberta Utility Source and will be the same regardless of your natural gas provider.

Market participants like Alberta Utility Source have control over the deregulated charges. That's where we can often save you money compared to other retailers/energy marketers.

RRO: The default option of many Albertans


If you haven’t shopped around for the best price for your natural gas, you most likely have the defaulted Regulated Rate Option (RRO). The RRO is approved by the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) and is a variable rate that changes every month.

Many of Alberta consumers receive natural through RRO providers such as ENMAX, EPCOR, ATCO or Direct Energy. With the RRO, you cannot be refused energy for reasons such as poor credit, but the RRO is not necessarily your cheapest option for natural gas.

You asked for it. We listened.

You asked for it. We listened.

When we started delivering energy directly to consumers, we did it because we knew you deserved a provider that was local, that listened and that helped you save money. Natural gas wasn't in our plan - until you asked to be able to get all your energy from one company. Now we make it as simple for you to get gas as we do electricity or green energy. You asked. We listened. That's the way we do business.
