UPCOMING ALBERTA ENERGY CHANGES
AND HOW IT AFFECTS YOU!
 
The GOA recently announced a cap on the regulated rate option (RRO) for electricity of 6.8 cents/kWh, commencing June 2017 through June 2021.
 
Good news - all of our current fixed rates, some extending to the end of 2020, are substantially lower than this number!
 
Chamber members get exclusive fixed rates to the end of 2018 starting at 5.25 cents/kWh, and to the end of 2020 starting at 5.95 cents/kWh!
 
Our Variable Rate for electricity is also extremely low,
only 2.95 cents/kWh right now!

On December 11th the Suicide Prevention Resource Centre is filming a music video, which will be used to raise awareness and resources for suicide awareness.  We need your help!  The video requires between 380 and 500 people in the Douglas Cardinal Theatre as the chorus.  A strong singing voice is not required, as you will be one voice in the madding crowd.  What is required is a sense of adventure, and the desire to support community!
 
Please arrive at 10 AM, and wear a neutral or light coloured top.  Avoid white, black, obvious patterns and logos.  Wear your cool hat or favorite scarf, if you like.  It is helpful to us if you pre-register, but it is not essential.  You can do that on our website at
www.sp-rc.ca/shine-your-light-registration
