Bulletin – Amendment to AUC Rule 027
The AUC advised that on May 20, 2020, it approved amendments to Rule 027: Specified Penalties for Contravention of Reliability Standards, with an effective date of June 1, 2020.
Beginning in January 2020, the AUC initiated a rule-review process in which it sought feedback from stakeholders on changes to Rule 027. The proposed changes involved the addition of new and amended reliability standards to the penalty table as well as the removal of reliability standards that have been replaced or retired.
The AUC announced that a new initiative for 2020 would be to pursue opportunities to reduce the lag time between the approval of new or revised reliability standards or the removal of obsolete reliability standards and the inclusion of the new or revised reliability standards in Rule 027.
