Regulated Rate Option (RRO)
If you have not entered into an energy contract, you are on the regulated rate option (RRO).
Effective July 1, 2010, the RRO is 100% based on the spot market price; the RRO rate will continue to fluctuate.
Rocky Rural Power administers the RRO service on behalf of Rocky REA Wires Division.

Members & customers are free to select a retailer of their choice. For more information and for a list of licensed Alberta retailers, visit their website, or you can call toll free in Alberta 310-4822.
Electricity delivery isn’t affected by your choice of retailer: Rocky REA Wires Division will continue to be your wire service provider (the builder and maintainer of your physical line).
Energy Contract Option
The Province of Alberta deregulated energy. This means Rocky REA will remain your wire service provider but you do have a choice in who supplies you with your energy.
Rocky REA members have options:
- You can choose to sign up for Rocky Rural Power’s Energy Contract.
- You can check out your options with the retail market: for further information, visit Utilities Consumer Advocate's website.
