ATCO Advantage Rate Plan

Unlock Alberta's Wholesale Energy Rates*

Unlock Alberta's wholesale energy rates* with the ATCO Advantage Rate Plan.

Tap into wholesale pricing on Alberta’s variable energy rate, only with ATCOenergy. A low daily fee gives you access to the same rates we pay for the energy in your home – with no retail markup.

Get your Insider Advantage

If you're on any other variable rate energy plan, you're probably paying a monthly admin fee on top of a built-in transaction fee for every kWh or GJ you use. That's a lot of fees. We wanted to keep things simple. With a daily access fee of 59¢ per service, the wholesale cost of Alberta's energy rate is the price you pay for the energy you use. No additional markups or retail administration fees. Just the great service you've come to expect from ATCOenergy.
