I am looking for an energy provider for my rental property in Edmonton. Which provider do you use and recommend? Is it better to register under landlord and have flat rate to he tenant or ask them to register an account? Thanks for the input!

In Edmonton EPCOR & Direct Energy are the 2 primary providers who service most of the city. There are many smaller/private providers who offer good rates, but their service may be lacking (or they default to EPCOR for any trouble-shooting.)
I prefer to get the utilities in my name and flat fee charge them back to tenants...but if its a single family property or there are separate meters for the utilities (such as a 4plex), then I would have the tenants get utilities under their own name.
