Government of Alberta Provincial Carbon Levy
As part of its Climate Leadership Plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the Government of Alberta has introduced a levy on the price of all fuels that emit greenhouse gases when combusted. This includes natural gas. The levy will be applied beginning January 1, 2017. To learn more, see our FAQs, visit www.climate.alberta.ca, or call 310-0000 for more information.
All customers are free to purchase natural gas services from the default supply provider or from a retailer of their choice and to purchase electricity services from the regulated rate provider or from a retailer of their choice. The delivery of natural gas and electricity to you is not affected by your choice. If you change who you purchase natural gas services or electricity services from, you will continue receiving natural gas and electricity from the distribution company in your service area. For a current list of retailers you may choose from, visit www.ucahelps.gov.ab.ca, or call 310-4822 (toll free in Alberta).
