Other Retailers

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:

  1. You can choose to sign up for Rocky Rural Power’s Energy Contract.
  2. You can check out your options with the retail market: for further information, visit Utilities Consumer Advocate's website.
