ACE has a plan for you!

Fixed Rate

ACE’s Fixed rate plan provides price certainty at an affordable rate, and you always know what rate you’re paying because the Fixed rate is constant for the term of your contract. There are no surprises, and you can be secure in the knowledge that your rate does not vary month to month.

As a Micro-generator, you have the option to choose one of our (year-round) Fixed Rates for the term of your contract and when you are generating more energy than you're consuming, the micro-generator
credits will be applied
as a credit directly to your monthly invoice.
**All Credits are Subject to Alberta Regulations**

When you sign-up with ACE, you can add on a fully refundable $25 Membership and receive the Loyalty / Membership rate.

Variable (Market) Rate 

For people who like to ride the market and are not concerned with the natural fluctuations in energy rates, our variable rate is for you. 

Our current Variable rates:

  • Electricity: Market based Floating rate plus *EMR / kWh

  • Natural Gas: Market based Floating rate plus *EMR /  GJ

      To learn about the variable rate calculation:


A comprehensive program with a 3-year term for Small-Scale Micro-generators that offers higher compensation (as a credit, offsetting your electricity bill) when most micro-generators are typically generating more energy than they’re consuming and exporting the excess to the grid, as well as automatically switching to a competitive fixed rate plan when solar generation is usually producing less energy and generators are more reliant on grid power.

Renewable Energy Programs and Rates

Renewable energy is becoming very popular today due to their lower impact on the world around us. For this reason, we have developed a few small-scale micro-generation rate options and two important programs to support the growth of renewable energy production in Alberta.

Have you experienced an issue with Meter Reads?
We understand that sometimes your Distributor may fail to obtain your Meter Reads, and we realize this can be very frustrating for you. ACE has a stringent bill check routine that is adhered to consistently to ensure that your bills are accurate and when a meter read is missing (or “estimated” at zero by the Distributor) it must be represented as such on your bill because we comply with the Alberta rules and regulations.  

Please feel free to contact us with your meter read concerns.

SPARK Green Generator Rate

Micro-generators provide a public service by increasing the amount of renewable energy that is available through Alberta’s electricity grid. We think they should be compensated fairly for the energy they export. **All Credits are Subject to Alberta Regulations**

At $0.3000 plus *EMR / kWh, ACE offers Alberta’s leading exporting micro-generation rate.

Please be advised our Green Generator Categories are temporarily at capacity due to low uptake of SPARK Green Offsets by consumers, therefore registration for all Categories are closed at this time. Re-opening will occur upon increase in consumer demand of SPARK Green Offsets. 

Year-Round Small Scale Micro-generation is OPEN to Registration as per usual at the province's leading rate of $0.3000 + *EMR / kWh

Spark Offset
*EMR = Energy Management Rate
Our energy experts seek the best price for our consumers and the EMR (Energy Management Rate) is essentially the cost attributable to procuring supply that backs the commitment we made to you with respect to the price of your energy. To ensure you know what you’re paying for we keep our rates transparent by separating the EMR component from that of your energy charge. Just one more great co-operative value and your ACE Advantage.
  • Electricity EMR is $0.0099 (less than one cent) / kWh

  • Natural Gas EMR is $0.99 (or 99 cents) / GJ

Bill Payments: 
Bill payments must be made either by Pre-Authorized Debit (PAD), which will be automatically withdrawn from your bank account on the due date shown on your bill. Or you may use a credit card to pay your bills and the amount (including the transaction charge of 2.5%) will be automatically charged to your credit card on the due date shown on your bill.

Administration Fees:

In keeping with our Cooperative values, we remain competitive with the marketplace and endeavor to keep our administrative fees as low as possible.

ACE bills a monthly administration fee for each site listed on your account:

  • The Admin fee for the first site is $7.99 and each additional site is $6.99 (for sites other than small-scale high-rate micro-gen sites).

  • The Admin fees for Small-Scale High-Rate Micro-generation sites is $13.99/site.
