Cold Lake Natural Gas and Electricity Retailers
Cold Lake is a small city located in Alberta with a population of over 15,000. It is particularly well known for its pristine waters and beautiful natural settings that provide habitats for all sorts of wildlife. One example of such is the Cold Lake Provincial Park. The city is also located near an oil patch that employs several workers.
Even though Cold Lake is a small city, its residents have plenty of choices when it comes to selecting energy providers. The energy market in Alberta is deregulated, meaning that people in Cold Lake have many options when it comes to electricity and natural gas retailers. You can take advantage of this by selecting the electricity and natural gas suppliers that provide the best energy plans in your area.
It’s important to note that other Cold Lake utilities, such as water and wastewater, are provided by the municipality.

- ATCO Power
- Direct Energy
- ENMAX Energy

Note that if you don’t choose a competitive energy retailer, your local utility will provide your natural gas and/or electricity services to you. Otherwise, if you do select an energy retailer, the plans available will usually include whether fixed or floating rates.
Fixed energy rates allow you to “lock in” at a particular rate and pay that same rate for your energy for long periods of time (usually one, two or five years.) Choosing fixed rates can help protect you from market spikes that would cause you to pay significantly more for your energy.
On the other hand, floating rates change from month to month depending on the market situation. Choosing a floating-rate plan can help you take advantage of when market prices for energy are low, unlike fixed-rate plans. However, if there are sudden spikes in the market prices for energy, you won’t be protected from these spikes like you would be with a fixed-rate plan.
Overall, choosing between fixed rates and floating rates depends on what you value — if you like to set a strict budget for your utilities and other monthly costs, then fixed rates may be the better option. If you wish to save as much as possible when market prices are low, then floating rates are probably the best option for your home or business.
