As a customer of FortisAlberta, you are not billed directly by us. Instead, we bill your retailer for Electricity Distribution Service. Our charges appear on the bill you receive from your retailer, and are usually identified as "the cost of delivering electric energy to you."
The monthly Distribution Tariff bill is based on how much electricity you consume between two consecutive meter readings, and is determined by the Distribution Tariff rate sheets.
The Customer Terms and Conditions approved by AUC are intended to govern the relationship between FortisAlberta and our customers.
