RRO Magnifying glass

You have the power to choose a better option

Alberta’s energy rates are on the rise, so why continue paying more when costs can be manageable? And when you’re on the government default Regulated Rate Option (RRO), you’re paying a set monthly rate, missing out on the flexibility and rate perks of a retail plan.

Not to mention if you’re using both electricity and natural gas, you're also getting separate bills for each fuel, and who has time for that?

Switch to a more flexible plan today by choosing your own online, or connect with one of our Alberta-based advisors to discuss options for your home!

Understand the Alberta RRO Cap Deferral

The Government of Alberta has announced a temporary electricity price cap for Albertans still on the RRO, AKA the Regulated Rate Option. RRO customers won’t be charged more than 13.5¢/kW in January, February and March 2023. 

While creating a cap to help stabilize bills throughout the winter months, this will not remove the costs like a rebate would. That’s why ATCOenergy continues to strongly recommend getting off the RRO if you can and choose a guaranteed rate to avoid unnecessary energy costs.

Can You Find the RRO?

We asked regular Albertans if they were paying high Regulated Rate Option prices for their energy. Most of them didn’t know, and it wasn’t easy to find out.

All About the RRO

About the RRO

The Regulated Rate Option, or RRO, offers Albertans a default option for energy that is set each month. But the RRO is often less than ideal. Switching to a retail plan can give you perks, flexibility and more control over your energy plan.
