    Anyone call into enmax to see if you can get a better fixed rate of $4.09?

    No, not at this point in the game. They weren't in budging in August, doubt they will now.

    Electrcity needs to go up huge in the next few years one way or the other. That's my theory.

    I’m locked at 5.79 and 4.09. Hoping to save TENS of dollars.

    I think ES is right about electricity being the one to worry about as well. Apparently Alberta's peak power useage occurs during our two-four week cold snap we get in Jan/Feb every year, only was beaten by the heat wave this summer.

    So I can definitely see the price rocketing. Are we doing ok on generating capacity nowadays with all the coal plants shutdown?

    No such thing as "locked in" with utilities for ATCO and ENMAX. Switch and choose what you want in your favor with the applicable notice times (15/30 days respectively).

    The power stations will be shocked to find out their coal units have stopped running.

    As usual Zechs is misinformed. Some of the coal plans have converted to natural gas, and some others are planned to convert or shut down. The main thing that has done, and will do, is increase the cost of electricity, since coal is the cheapest power we make. Natural Gas is mostly replacing the coal for baseload power.

    Do you know if they notify when you put in the transfer request? Or do you have to tell your current provider when you've decided to leave?

    If the interchange numbers are negative does that mean we're providing power to others?

    I believe negative interchange means we will power from others.

    Net Actual Interchange -815

    A cursory look makes me think the opposite.

    Right now, total net generation (9668) is less than internal load (10507), interchange is the delta (-839), or deficit in this example.

    Sorry I mean the price is locked in for a 5 year term. But I should of changed my electricity at the same time, now gotta wait end of month for it to kick in.

    Thanks for your help on steering me to some savings

    Speaking of, one of the co-workers is signed up with Ambit. Are they legit? They got some good prices compared to what I'm paying currently. Whats the catch

    Enmax and Atco raise lock in rates:

    https://energy.atco.com/en-ca/home-e...rgy-plans.html

    https://www.enmax.com/home/electrici...l-gas/easymax?

    Enmax 5 year still very reasonable. Expecting some sort of recovery?
