Facilities – Solar Generation
In this decision, the AUC issued a corrigendum to Decision 25690-D01-2020. The AUC approved the application from Barlow Solar Park Ltd. to construct and operate a 27-megawatt solar power plant, designated as the Barlow Solar Park, in the City of Calgary (the “Project”).
In Decision 25690-D01-2020, the Commission included a condition of approval related to Rule 033: Post approval Monitoring Requirements for Wind and Solar Power Plants. The condition was imposed in error because Alberta Environment and Parks (“AEP”) did not prepare a renewable energy referral report for the Project given its specific circumstances and it neither required nor recommended post-construction monitoring.
Decision 25690-D01-2020 also stated in error that ENMAX Power Corp (“ENMAX”) had “… confirmed its willingness to connect the power plant to ENMAX’s 25-kilovolt electric distribution system provided that Barlow Solar can demonstrate compliance with applicable rules, standards and ENMAX’s interconnection requirements.” No connection voltage was stipulated by ENMAX.
Decision 25690-D01-2020 was amended to remove the Rule 033 condition as well as the specific reference to ENMAX’s 25-kilovolt distribution system.
