Solar – Markets
Claresholm Solar GP Ltd. (“Claresholm Solar”) applied pursuant to s 3 of the Fair, Efficient and Open Competition Regulation (“FEOCR”), seeking permission to share records not available to the public. The information was related to the Claresholm Solar Power Plant, located near the town of Claresholm and consisting of 477,198 solar panels, with a total generating capability of 132 megawatts. Claresholm Solar applied to share the records between Claresholm Solar, Claresholm Solar Limited Partnership and URICA Energy Real Time Ltd.
The AUC was satisfied that Claresholm Solar had demonstrated that: (i) the sharing of records was reasonably necessary for Claresholm Solar 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.
