Premier Rachel Notley and Energy Minister has said that the Government of Alberta is protecting families, farms and small business with a ceiling on electricity prices as the province makes necessary reforms to the electricity system.
“Our government inherited a volatile electricity system that doesn’t look out for consumers or work for investors. While electricity prices are low today, the current oversupply won’t last forever. Alberta’s economy is stabilizing and this government won’t put Alberta families, jobs or the economic gains we are beginning to see at risk in a volatile electricity market. This rate ceiling, along with other electricity system reforms we will announce this week, will ensure stable and affordable electricity prices going forward.”
