    Cost management

    We recognize the cost pressures families, business owners, farmers and commercial and industrial consumers are facing as Albertans continue to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and low oil prices.

    As the organization responsible for managing the safe, reliable and economic operation of the provincial power system, the AESO is committed to doing what we can within our mandate to enable Alberta’s future prosperity by focusing on the following:

    • Driving better cost management across the industry value chain
    • Facilitating business in the province
    • Reducing red tape
    • Creating a simpler and more agile approach to our own business processes

    We have already actioned several near-term cost management initiatives and will continue to work with the Government of Alberta and industry to identify longer-term opportunities to put downward pressure on costs and to reduce red tape and regulatory burden.

    We welcome stakeholder input as we work together to support Alberta’s economic recovery. Please send any comments or questions to
