Alberta Energy Marketing Regulation & Fair Trading Act
If you consume greater than 2500 gigajoules of gas per year or 250 megawatt hours of electricity per year you do not have to purchase natural gas or electricity from a licensed Retailer. What does this mean? On average residential customers consume 119 gigajoules per year of natural gas. For their safety, government regulations require that they purchase natural gas from a licensed Retailer. A consumer, with multiple sites, that in aggregation uses greater than 2500 gigajoules a year can bypass the Retail market and buy natural gas at a lower cost in the wholesale market.
