Facilities – Applications

The AUC updated Rule 007: Applications for Power Plants, Substations, Transmission Lines, Industrial System Designations, Hydro Developments and Gas Utility Pipelines (“Rule 007”) to align it with the Electricity Statutes (Modernizing Alberta’s Electricity Grid) Amendment Act and the amended Hydro and Electric Energy Regulation.

Updates to Rule 007 integrate the information requirements for energy storage facilities with distinct types of ownership. Similar to other types of electric facility applications, information required for amending, decommissioning and salvaging, cancelling or extending the construction completion date of an energy storage facility was added. The updated Rule 007 also provides exemptions from filing an application for small power plants, small energy storage facilities and isolated generating units, if certain criteria are met.
