Streetlight Repair Reporting
FortisAlberta has launched a new Streetlight Repair Map. With this map, you can view streetlights in FortisAlberta’s service area and request a repair online within minutes. The map was designed with you in mind, to be user-friendly, simple and easy to use. Once a streetlight repair request is submitted, a service order is automatically generated to facilitate repairs.

Interested in learning how to use the new Streetlight Repair Map? View FortisAlberta’s online video tutorial at:

Due to Alberta's deregulated electricity marketplace, customers have the freedom to choose their energy provider and products that best suit their needs.

The Office of the Utilities Consumer Advocate (UCA) 310-4-UCA (310-4822) works to ensure Alberta consumers have the information, representation and protection they need in Alberta's restructured electricity and natural gas markets. Use their search tool to determine which retailers are available in our area with the options you choose.
