Because aluminum has a 3+ charge, meaning that there are 3 delocalised electrons for each atom, moving freely between each aluminium atom. Therefore, when and electrical field is applied to the substance, all the loose electrons are able to move towards the positive terminal of the electrical field, thus making it a good conductor of electricity.

Aluminum makes a good conductor of heat and electricity because of its free electrons that can quickly pass on the energy that is applied to it.
