Wind Power – Markets
BA4 Wind GP Corp. (“BA4 Wind”), applied pursuant to s 3 of the Fair, Efficient and Open Competition Regulation (“FEOCR”), seeking permission to share records not available to the public regarding the Buffalo Atlee Wind Farm 4 consisting of two wind turbines with a total generating capability of 10.4 megawatts (“MW”) and related equipment. BA4 Wind applied to share records between BA4 Wind, BA4 Wind LP and URICA Energy Real Time Ltd.
The AUC was satisfied that BA4 Wind demonstrated that: (i) the sharing of records was reasonably necessary for BA4 Wind 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. The AUC approved the application.
