Tariff – Rider C
In this decision, the AUC directed AltaLink Management Ltd. (“AML”) to adjust its 2021 tariff by the amount of $230 million, which results in a net 2021 tariff reduction in the amount of $223,512,781 to be implemented effective April 1, 2021. This net tariff reduction results in a revised 2021 net monthly tariff of $45,851,942 for April through December 2021.
The AUC concurrently directed the Alberta Electrical System Operator (“AESO”) to utilize Rider C to pass through the net 2021 tariff reduction of $223,512,781 in the second quarter of 2021. This would provide Alberta ratepayers with immediate, albeit temporary relief in 2021. The AUC further granted the AESO relief from Subsection 2(3) of Rider C such that the AESO is not required to publish the $223,512,781 credit at least 30 days prior to the beginning of the second quarter. This exemption permits the AESO to amend any existing published amounts as needed.
