Rural Electric Program

The Rural Electric Program commenced in 1947. It is a cost-sharing program, which helps defray the high cost of electrical service to farmers. The Rural Electric Program assists farmers to access a basic, essential service at a reasonable cost and aids in the diversification of our rural economy. It also provides partial equity with other Albertans living in urban areas as well as those living in other western provinces that benefit from lower hook-up costs and power rates sponsored by their provincial governments through Crown corporations.
