FEOC Regulation – Sharing of Records


The Balancing Pool filed an application on behalf of Concord Drumheller GP under the Fair, Efficient and Open Competition Regulation (“FEOCR”) seeking permission to share records not available to the public. These records relate to the 13.5-megawatt Drumheller Solar and Battery Storage Project between the Balancing Pool, Concord Drumheller GP2 Ltd., Concord Drumheller Partnership, and URICA Energy Real Time Ltd.


The AUC was satisfied that the Balancing Pool had demonstrated that (i) the sharing of records was reasonably necessary for the Balancing Pool 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 FEOCR.
