ATCOenergy is a retailer of electricity and natural gas that focuses on what they call “positive energy”. For ATCOenergy, this means providing Alberta residents with customizable plans, competitive rates and green options from renewable resources like wind and solar. These energy solutions are for residential, small business and industrial consumers.
ATCOenergy offers value and savings for Albertans through innovative energy products and flexible plans. Business offerings include:
Electricity Guaranteed Price: A low-risk and low-involvement guaranteed price solution that allows you to pay the same fixed rate for your energy costs without having to worry about consumption bands that penalize you if your usage goes up or down. This is beneficial if your business consumes over 2,500 GJ a year.
Floating Electricity: Consumers pay the settled power pool price plus a small retail service charge without being locked in. This floating rate plan offers the most flexibility for businesses that are just starting out or are undergoing construction and have yet to determine historic volumes.
Load Following: A guaranteed energy price with some flexibility to accommodate consumption changes. The load following solution offers the most protection against market fluctuations, plus it offers ±10% bands of coverage for usage changes.
Structured Blocks: This block pricing plan provides a blend of price protection and market rates so you can benefit from the fixed part of your usage while still maintaining flexibility for changes in consumption. You can secure fixed prices by purchasing the combination of blocks you need to cover all or some of your load shape, and usage over or under is either charged or credited at the market price (plus a retail service charge).
Load Following Natural Gas: Load following plans are a low-risk and low-involvement price guarantee that allows you to pay the same price for your natural gas costs regardless of market fluctuations, and without being penalized by consumption bands if your usage fluctuates.
Floating Natural Gas: A variable solution that charges the daily wholesale price of natural gas, plus a small retail service charge for your consumption. It allows for greater flexibility and control over natural gas costs for businesses that aren’t ready to sign a guaranteed price agreement.
ATCOenergy’s residential offerings include:
Guaranteed Electricity Price: A stable rate option that allows your price of consumption to remain the same despite market fluctuations. Your consumption charge will be based on an all-in rate for each kWh you use, which means your price will vary based on consumption, not market fluctuations.
Variable Electricity Price: Provides exposure to market fluctuations as well as changes in consumption rates. It is provided through a consumption-weighted average flow-through of the market price with a service fee.
Guaranteed Natural Gas Price: A stable rate option that allows your price of consumption to remain the same despite market fluctuations. Your charge will vary based on your monthly consumption amount alone.
Variable Natural Gas Price: Provides exposure to monthly fluctuations in both natural gas charges and consumption rates that are based on a temperature-weighted average flow-through of the market price of natural gas.
Green Energy: You can select anywhere from 25% to 100% of your electricity plan to come from Alberta-based renewable sources, like hydro, wind, and solar, for a small premium that is charged on your consumption in kWh.
