Frequently Asked Questions
Who is Green Alberta Energy?
Green Alberta Energy, is an operating division of Utility Network & Partners (UTILITYnet) and is in partnership with Get Energy. All the monthly consumer billing for Get Energy is processed and managed by UTILITYnet.
We have aggregated the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates across a number of retailers which has allowed Get Energy to offer you the very best Green Energy rate in the industry.
What are the administration fees?
None for existing customers of the registered retailers operating in partnership with Green Alberta Energy as part of our commitment to Climate Change. Zero is good!
Do I have to sign a long term contract?
No, not at all. This is an agreement that tells us the percentage of your monthly usage of electricity that you want to green.
You can change the percentage monthly (10 days prior to the normal billing period). Increase, decrease or cancel.
Does my purchase mean I’m using renewable energy to power my home or business?
Not directly. Your purchase guarantees that clean, renewable energy is being placed onto the electric grid, raising the percentage of renewable energy used overall.
How will I be billed?
As a customer of Get Energy, you will find a separate line item under the heading of Green Alberta Energy on your monthly invoice statement.
The cost of the Green Energy, based on the percentage you chose, will simply be added to your existing monthly retail electricity bill.
There is no separate invoice and the green portion is paid together with your regular monthly pre-authorized payment.
How much will it cost?
As an example, if an average residential consumer uses 600 kWh per month and greens 25% of the of his monthly consumption, it would cost about 8 cents per day.
This program is 100% voluntary. If you can afford more, you can increase the percentage – even less is ok, too.
Every bit helps green the grid.
How much should I green?
Green what you can afford, anywhere from 1 to 100%
On the grid in Alberta today, approximately 70% is produced by Coal Generators.
Only green what you are comfortable with and can afford. Use the calculator to estimate the cost.
How will the cost of Green Energy be calculated?
You are in control. Simply let us know the percentage (%) of your monthly consumption that you want to green.
Each month we will apply this percentage to your actual billed consumption (kWh multiplied by the percentage you want to green).
The cost per kWh of green energy is 1.66 cents per kWh.
