Frequently Asked Questions

Find all the answers you need

A: If you currently receive electricity or natural gas, and have not entered into a contract for those services, you are purchasing energy from a Regulated Rate Provider under default supply service.
A: The regulated rate is the unit price of electricity or natural gas set by the Alberta Utilities Commission, municipal councils, rural electrification associations (REA) or other local regulatory bodies. The regulated rate changes monthly and is different depending on where in Alberta you live. This rate is only applicable to those who choose to not receive energy from a competitive retailer.
A: An energy contract is a legal agreement between you and a licensed energy marketer. It states the price you will pay for energy and the terms and conditions of your energy purchase.
A: Ambit Energy is known as an energy marketer. An energy marketer is an independent electricity or natural gas marketing company whose prices are not regulated by any provincial or municipal government, REA or agency. These companies are licensed by the Government of Alberta, but are not affiliated with government. Any rebates or special offers made to encourage you to sign an energy marketer contract are not part of any government program.
A:
  • You will pay an agreed contract price for the energy you use for the term of your contract.
  • You will receive your contracted energy from the energy marketer on the date specified in your contract. Your current energy provider will be notified of this change and will automatically stop billing you.
  • You will receive your bill from your new energy marketer. The new bill will have a new account number. If you previously had a budget plan or automatic withdrawal it will not continue, you will need to contact your new energy marketer to request these options.
  • Your energy marketer may charge an early exit fee if you cancel your energy contract before the Contract Term Expiration date. Variable rate plans are month-to-month contracts and are not assessed an early exit fee.
  • Your new energy marketer will provide Customer service for the products and services you purchase and will help you with questions about your bills.
A:
  • Your new bill will continue to include charges for energy, delivery, administration and taxes.
  • You will continue to pay delivery charges to a distribution company for delivering energy to your home or business. Delivery charges are regulated and are the same no matter which energy marketer you choose or if you remain on the regulated rate.
