Responsible Electricity Transmission for Albertans
If You Don’t Like EPCOR’s High Power Prices…Switch
Electricity consumers without contracts under the regulated rate option (RRO) with EPCOR have just been told their monthly power bills will jump an average of $30 – that’s 28% (Edmonton Journal). And EPCOR doesn’t offer contracts. If EPCOR customers are cheesed off, what can they do?
They can complain…or they can switch to one of a growing number of smaller firms and co-ops that offer contracts at significant savings. For example, Spot Power, Adagio, Brighter Futures, Bow Valley, E.NRG, Milner, Mountain View, Spark and Vector are 9 retailers that operate under the “boutique retailing” services of Utility Network & Partners Inc. These, and others that will be entering the market soon, are offering choice to electricity consumers – and, at a saving.
So…if you don’t like EPCOR’s skyrocketing power prices…switch. Remember, EPCOR is the company, together with AltaLink and Montreal-based SNC-Lavalin, that will be negatively impacting thousands of Edmonton, Strathcona County and Sturgeon County residents with the 500kV overhead Heartland Transmission Line which is currently under construction. They refuse to bury even a portion of the line that will run next to 5,200 homes.
