Making the Switch to Mountain View Power Service

Local is a buzzword these days. Local vegetables, local honey, local music and local news; why not local energy? If you live in the central region of Alberta, you may be able to choose Mountain View Power as your electricity supplier – a truly local energy marketer.

Mountain View Power is a different kind of energy marketer. Only serving customers in the Mountain View County area, the company has a unique focus on bettering its community. The company's community focus makes sense when you note that Mountain View Power is owned by the Olds Institute for Community & Regional Development, a consortium of local interests working collectively to turn the community of Olds and the surrounding areas into a great place to live. Whether you're looking for a residential plan or a Mountain View Power business solution, you're in the right place.

A marketer with a local focus

Operating with the slogan "Supporting Our Community One Kilowatt at a Time," Mountain View Power electricity plans are designed specifically with Mountain View County's residents in mind. The business model is more akin to a nonprofit organization than an energy marketer. Combining competitive rates with a pledge of no exit fees, Mountain View Power also adds in a commitment to donate 100% of its profits to the Olds Institute for distribution within the community.

In sum, Mountain View Power operates under a simple message – you're going to buy energy somewhere, why not do so locally?

Taking a closer look at Mountain View Power rates

Before you jump at the chance to sign up for a Mountain View Power electric plan, take a minute to step back and make sure you've done your homework. Take out your existing energy bill. Scan the lines until you find the supply rate you're paying; it will be listed as cents per kilowatt hour. Remember, any good comparison needs a solid frame of reference.

Take your supply rate and compare it to the offers you receive from the many Alberta energy providers operating in Mountain View County. The rates associated with a plan aren't the only charges you need to keep in mind. Unlike Mountain View Power electric plans, which don't have long-term contracts, some marketers offer low rates that require customers to sign a long-term contract. Likewise, many of these contracts have clauses that allow companies to charge customers fees if they choose to end their agreements before the terms are complete.

How Mountain View Power rates are structured

As with many other energy marketers, there are Mountain View Power rates based on different rate structures. Whether you're interested in buying a plan with rates that rise and fall with the overall energy market or a plan with a stable rate per kilowatt hour of usage for a set term, Mountain View Power service may fit your needs.

The floating rate option from Mountain View Power is a straightforward service. In addition to the actual energy costs determined each month by the Alberta Electric System Operator, Mountain View Power tacks on an additional 1.5 cents/kWh. This upcharge is what goes to fund community development in Olds and other areas of Mountain View County.

Usually when talking about a marketer's stable-rate plans, it's important to talk about contract requirements and limitations. With the stable-rate Mountain View Power electricity plans, restrictive contracts aren't a concern. Since the company does not charge exit fees, even after signing on to a 3-year, stable-rate plan, you have the freedom to choose a new plan from another competitive marketer at any time! There are some additional usage fees that go along with choosing a stable-rate option, but the same rule applies when it comes to profits earned by Mountain View Power – all profits go to community efforts in Olds and Mountain View County.
