In the hopes of helping Grande Prairie residents and small business owners better understand their bills, a policy advisor for Alberta’s Utilities Consumer Advocate is paying a visit Tuesday.
In addition to helping decipher what’s on their electricity and gas bills, Rob Spragins says they’ll also explain the difference between regulated service and a competitive contract.
“Typically the difference between the two is that the regulated service varies each month, so that the price goes up and down, and in a competitive contract, consumers can select a fixed price option and that enables them to get rid of the volatility that they’re seeing each month in their bill.”
The UCA offers a list of retailers and their products on its website for consumers to look through.
The Public Library will play host to the session starting at 7 p.m.
