Electricity – Records


The Balancing Pool, pursuant to 7 of the Small Scale Generation Regulation, acting on behalf of 2079816 Alberta as a small-scale power producer, filed an application under the Fair, Efficient and Open Competition Regulation (“FEOCR”), seeking permission to share records not available to the public related to the 6-Megawatt Youngstown Solar Project, near Youngstown. The sharing of information was between the Balancing Pool, 2079816 Alberta Ltd., PACE Canada LP and URICA Energy Real Time Ltd (“URICA”).


The AUC was satisfied that the Balancing Pool had demonstrated that: (i) the sharing of records with URICA 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. The AUC approved the application.
