Swan Hills Power filed an application seeking permission to share records not available to the public relating to the 21-megawatt Co-produced Geothermal Power Plant between Swan Hills Power and URICA Energy Real Time Ltd. (“URICA”).


The AUC was satisfied that Swan Hills Power had demonstrated that (i) the sharing of records with URICA was reasonably necessary for Swan Hills Power to carry out its business; and (ii) the subject records would not be used for any purpose that did not support the fair, efficient and openly competitive operation of the Alberta electricity market. The AUC was also satisfied that the total offer control of the parties would not exceed the offer control limit of 30 percent under s. 5(5) of the Fair, Efficient and Open Competition Regulation.
