Agriculture in Alberta is getting faster, smarter and more efficient. From fully automated milking machines to GPS navigation on 60-foot combines, we’ve come a long way.
But one thing that hasn’t changed is the impact energy prices have on your bottom line. Your equipment may be more efficient, but a lot of your operating costs are still tied up in running your machinery, heating your outbuildings and irrigating your crops.
Having a local energy expert who will sit down and really get to know you and your operation can make a world of difference.
According to Sean Jackins, an energy marketer with ATCOenergy, “What works for an average farm isn’t what works for every ag producer. Finding the right mix for your operation can save 10% or more on your energy expenses.”
That’s why it’s so important to find an energy provider who understands how the seasonal rhythm of activities in your operation affect your energy use. Unexpected changes in energy prices add even more risk to your operations, especially these days as electricity prices are more volatile than we’ve seen in years.
For Michael Sidoryk, General Manager of the Lloydminster Agricultural Exhibition Association, finding an energy expert who took the time to understand what he needed was key: “ATCOenergy will save us about 15% out of our total cost of operations. It’s a good partnership for us.”
Find savings and feel more secure with an electricity and natural gas plan that works for you, and an advisor who has your back. That’s just one of the ways ATCOenergy stands behind Alberta’s ag producers.
