Who we are
Our story began over 125 years ago in Edmonton as Canada's first municipally owned electric utility, and, ten years later, Edmonton's water utility. We provide clean water, wastewater and drainage services and safe, reliable energy to residential and commercial customers. We build, own and operate electrical, natural gas and water transmission and distribution networks, water and wastewater treatment facilities, sanitary and stormwater systems, and infrastructure in Canada and the United States. We also provide electricity, natural gas and water products and services to residential and commercial customers. The City of Edmonton is our sole Shareholder, and we operate as a commercial entity, governed by an independent Board of Directors. Since incorporating in 1996, we've achieved exceptional growth and have more than doubled our dividend.
