  2. Competitive (Contract) Retail Option: If you choose this option, you will purchase energy through a contract with a licensed competitive retailer who has registered with EQUS. To choose from a list of licensed, competitive retailers, please visit www.ucahelps.alberta.ca.
  3. Regulated Rate Option: You may choose to receive a regulated energy rate through the Regulated Rate Option (RRO). Please note, the RRO fluctuates month-to-month. If you do not sign a contract with a competitive electricity retailer or EQUS’ Co-operative Energy Rate contract, you will automatically be defaulted to the RRO.

All members are free to purchase electricity services through EQUS' regulated rate tariff or from a retailer of their choice. The delivery of electricity to you is not affected by your choice.
