History of the development of Rule 024

On February 1, 2008, the government of Alberta issued the Micro-Generation Regulation. This regulation allows Albertans to generate their own environmentally friendly electricity and receive credit for any power they send into the electrical grid.

The Alberta Utilities Commission has implemented the regulation, and has developed processes to simplify approvals and interconnection agreements between customers and owners of electrical distribution systems. AUC Rule 024 was developed to define the business rules and processes to enable customers interested in micro-generation to connect into the distribution system.

More information for customers interested in installing a micro-generator can be found on the micro-generation page.
