Duffield REA administers their own Regulated Rate Option (RRO). Your Board has policies in place to ensure members receive responsible competitive pricing.
The billing rate for electricity for the month of June has been set at
The average rate for electricity charged to members for January -
April by the REA was $0.068/KWH.
The Government of Alberta passed legislation enabling the March 18,
2020 announced Utility Deferral Payment Program. This legislation
requires energy retailers and REAs who manage electricity purchases
for members to allow consumers to defer payment of their electricity
bill. Invoices that are due between March 18 and June 18, 2020 are
eligible. All amounts deferred are due and payable June 19, 2020.
Duffield, along with a number of REAs, lobbied to allow REAs to
protect members from the residual cost. Our efforts to protect
members from additional costs were not successful therefore, REA
members will be required to share in the cost of the program. The
residual cost will be included in the Balancing Pool charge on your
bill, which we collect on behalf of the Alberta Government.
