Solar Power – Markets
Michichi Solar GP Inc. (“Michichi”) 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 Michichi Solar Generation Facility, located near the town of Drumheller and consisting of solar photovoltaic modules, inverter and transfer stations, a collector system, and a switching substation, with a total capability of 25 megawatts. Michichi applied to share records between Michichi, Michichi Solar Limited Partnership and URICA Energy Real Time Ltd.
The AUC was satisfied that Michichi had demonstrated that: (i) the sharing of records was reasonably necessary for Michichi 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.
