AUC Rules – Consultation


In June 2019, the AUC issued Bulletin 2019-10 which initiated a consultation process on potential changes to AUC Rule 007: Applications for Power of Plants, Substations, Transmission Lines, Industrial System Designations and Hydro Developments.

Indigenous consultation was one of the topics identified in the bulletin. Based on feedback, the AUC decided to separate the development of Indigenous consultation processes and procedures from the Rule 007 review project to allow more time for discussion (Bulletin 2019-20).

The AUC received feedback on the first round of consultation. It proposed revisions to Rule 007 for seven of the issues (outlined from 1-7 below). It seeks further stakeholder feedback on these issues, and three additional issues numbered 8-10 below.

  1. end-of-life management for power plants

  2. emergency response plan

  3. time extension applications for power plants

  4. notification and participant involvement program

  5. solar glint and glare assessment

  6. shadow flicker

  7. battery storage

  8. maximum impact scenario

  9. information requirement PP7

  10. re-organization of Rule 007
