Utilities Consumer Advocate
Our website is an interactive resource that is helping consumers, especially vulnerable Albertans, make informed choices about their electricity and natural gas services.
The website is mobile and tablet responsive and has several innovative new features, all of which are intended to provide a high-quality user/consumer experience:
• An interactive Cost Comparison Tool to give consumers the delivered cost of energy;
• Prominent and clear information about the services of the UCA’s Consumer Mediation Team;
• Revamped, plain-language content that’s easy to understand and optimized for search engines; and
• A searchable database that displays historical natural gas and electricity rates in a user-friendly format.
Main Street is a posted snow route, and as such, the Town crew may plow between the hours of 4:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. However, every effort is made to have Main Street cleaned by 8:00 a.m.
During the posted time period, any vehicle impeding the snow removal may be towed at Owner’s expense.
