    Thats one of the reasons I haven't switched. My EasyMax rewards $100 credit. Too bad Enmax isn't matching any promos this year tho
    They did not match last yr either ... which is why I switched to ATCO on the two month free deal. Two years ago when they match the Atco discount I stayed.

    Can anyone share a picture of their bill? Just curious what all the other fees are. I am on the grandfathered Enmax system and want to see if it's a better deal with this or not, from the sounds of it it may not be if you are grandfathered, but it's kind of hard to compare without other fees listed as well, unless those are mostly the same.

    EDIT: Just looked over a few of my bills, didn't realize that pretty much everything is variable, so the question is, aside from the energy charged and the Administration charge, are the other numbers the same for both providers?

    Thanks Tik-Tok, looks like it's the same charges for both providers, minus the transaction fee on gas which is included in the promo price.

    I did a spreadsheet for all the bills for 2018, and I am on the grandfathered plan, and it appears I would save money moving to ATCO.

    For electricity I just added Energy Charge and Administration charge, as these are variable with Enmax, and for the Atco side I simply multiplied usage x 0.03 and added the 5.99 admin fee
    For gas, I added together the Energy Charge, Administration Charge, and the Transaction charge (0.47c per GJ grandfathered) with Enmax, with Atco it's just $3.00 x Usage as the Transaction fee is included already in the promo.

    There were a few months where Enmax made adjustments that were too complex to calculate, so I left those two months out, but overall, it appears I spend a ton more on electricity than on Gas, so I think it would make sense for me to switch. Did I miss something?

    https://1drv.ms/x/s!AnMd58ytwyvqgZJWi1c4p8TNxLo49g

    Column B: Enter Enmax Electricity cost. This is comprised of the sum of everything above Delivery Charges - ENMAX. Normally these charges are Energy Charge, Administration Charge and for some, a Transaction Fee.

    Column C: Enter Enmax Gas Cost. This is comprised of the sum of everything above Delivery Charges - ATCO Gas. Normally these charges are Energy Charge, Administration Charge and for some, a Transaction Fee.

    Column D: Your ENMAX EasyMax Credit, entered as a negative value

    Column E & F: Auto generated. Made up of $5.99 service charge + the calculation of actual energy use.

    Column G: Electricity usage. Just enter the amount of kWh used for that billing cycle

    Column H: Gas usage. Just enter GJ of gas used for that billing cycle.

    This spreadsheet is designed for the current 3c/kWh and $3/GJ promo with all the formulas setup specifically for it. Just go to your Enmax bills and enter all the numbers and see.

    For those with Enmax, you can call up and reference this promo and they will give you a $75 - $150 credit immediately over the phone. Myself and a few friends have done this all with success.

    I did this last year or a few years ago, I got tired of doing this crap with cell phone companies and every other company, used to do it out of necessity to save $$, now it's just about the principle for me, so instead of calling in and asking for some discounts every few years I just look for what's easy and saves me money in the long run with consistent pricing.

    Bleh. I don't think there are any deals if you just need electricity though. ATCO doesn't honor the 3c/kWh unless you have gas too.

    thanks for this!

    it looks like I'll be saving a ton, so I made the switch!

    If the river was whisky, and I was a duck.
    I would swim to the bottom, and never come up.
    But the river isn't whisky, and I'm not a duck.
    So give me the whisky, and shut the hell up.

    With such cheap electricity, now I'm wondering if I should be heating my house electrically for the next 3 years. Maybe an electric water tank too, lol.

    just got this in my email. Winning so far?

    The average spot price for natural gas was $3.75/GJ in February, and even shot up to $4.85/GJ on March 1. The market price for electricity averaged over 10/kWh during the month. You paid just $3/GJ and 3/kWh!

    February 2019 Avg. Variable Price Your Price You Saved
    Electricity 10.61/kWh 3/kWh 7.61/kWh
    Natural Gas $3.75/GJ $3/GJ 75/GJ

    Those "avg. variable" numbers are horseshit.
