In recognition of the courage demonstrated by Albertans over the past year, ATCO is delivering a special gift this holiday season – free electricity and natural gas for the month of January.

"People throughout our province have shown incredible resilience during this difficult and prolonged period of economic uncertainty," said Nancy Southern, Chair, President & Chief Executive Officer, ATCO. "Albertans are at their very best when times are tough, and their steadfast resolve over the past 12 months has been extraordinary. It is our sincere privilege to be able to give something back to our friends and neighbours when they need it most."

All current ATCOenergy customers and any new customers that make the switch to ATCOenergy on or before December 31, 2016 will receive free energy in January. The credit will be applied automatically to customers' February statements, and will appear as a "Gift from ATCOenergy".

"Our roots are here in Alberta, a place we have called home for nearly 70 years," said Ms. Southern. "We believe in the people, the promise and the spirit of this remarkable province."

To further show the company's appreciation for its customers, ATCO will be hosting free family skating days and other community events across Alberta in November and through December. Customers are encouraged to bring along their energy bills to these events, so that ATCOenergy can help them make the switch on location in advance of December 31.

The credit will not apply towards charges outside of natural gas and electricity use, such as delivery charges, administration fees or taxes. Customers can find more information and sign up online at or by calling 1-844-687-2826.
