Distribution-Connected Generation Credit Module for FortisAlberta’s 2022 Phase II distribution tariff application

Distribution-Connected Generation Credit Module for FortisAlberta’s 2022 Phase II distribution tariff application

​​​

​​Overview

The AUC has approved applications from FortisAlberta Inc. for it's Distribution-Connected Generation Credit Module for FortisAlberta’s 2022 Phase II distribution tariff application. The AUC issued it's decision​ on the proceeding on June 7, 2021.

In FortisAlberta’s 2022 Phase II distribution tariff application (Proceeding 25916), Fortis proposed to continue extending Option M, a type of DCG credit. The AUC established Proceeding 26090 as a module of 25916 to consider whether distribution-connected generation (DCG) credits should continue to be included in a distribution utility’s tariff. 

FortisAlberta Inc., ATCO Electric Ltd. and ENMAX Power Corporation all offer DCG credit mechanisms in their respective tariffs. In view of setting an efficient regulatory agenda, the AUC decided on this matter for all distribution tariffs in this proceeding as an independent module of Proceeding 25916, Fortis’s 2022 Phase II distribution tariff application. 

The AUC's decision will affect ATCO Electric, ENMAX, and Fortis, as well as their customers, and the owners and operators of DCG units that receive benefit from DCG credit mechanisms set out in each of those utilities’ distribution tariffs.

Exhibit 26090-X0005 outlined the scope and process schedule used for this modular proceeding. 

The AUC​ held several virtual credit module sessions in March 2021 to ​consider whether distribution-connected generation​ credits should continue to be included in a distribution utility’s tariff​.
