Alberta's electricity system needs to change to meet the needs of tomorrow.

This plan will create a modern electricity system that:

  • has reasonable, predictable prices
  • reduces harmful pollution to improve the health of Albertans and the environment
  • creates a positive investment climate to keep Albertans competitive
  • remains reliable so the power is there when people flip the switch

Top experts in North America and consumer representatives have been consulted to build the plan.
