Solar Power – Markets
Kneehill Solar GP Ltd. (“Kneehill”) 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 Kneehill Solar Generation Facility, located near the town of Three Hills and consisting of 63,700 solar photovoltaic panels and a switchgear station, with a total generating capability of 25 megawatts. Kneehill applied to share records between Kneehill, Kneehill Solar Limited Partnership and URICA Energy Real Time Ltd.
The AUC was satisfied that Kneehill had demonstrated that: (i) the sharing of records was reasonably necessary for Kneehill 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.
