Change and Opportunity

EPCOR in a Deregulated Electricity Industry

Executive summary

Change and Opportunity

In July 1999, after months of debate, Edmonton City Council voted against selling EPCOR’s electrical assets. In the lead-up to that decision the Parkland Institute produced two reports that addressed both the value of EPCOR and the nature of its business environment (Taft, 1999; Taft and Gordon, 1999). 

This study extends those analyses and examines EPCOR’s standing in the throes of the de-regulation of Alberta’s electricity industry. It finds that EPCOR provides remarkable value to the City of Edmonton, and despite unexpected shifts in regulatory positions by the Alberta government, this value is likely to hold in the medium and long term.
