Schedule


Definitions
1   In this Regulation,

     (a)  "Act" means the Electric Utilities Act;

     (b)  "committed capacity", in respect of a generating unit, means
the committed capacity of that generating unit as set out in the power
purchase arrangement that applies to that generating unit;

     (c)  "common facilities", in respect of a power plant, means the
facilities identified as associated facilities in Schedule A of the power
purchase arrangement that applies to the generating units at that power
plant;

     (d)  "generating unit" means a generating unit to which a power
purchase arrangement applies;

     (e)  "in-service date" means the date a new generating unit begins
to generate electric energy for the purpose of exchange but not for the
purpose of testing or commissioning the unit;

     (f)  "maximum continuous rating", in respect of a new generating
unit, means the capacity, expressed in kilowatts, of the new generating
unit, determined in the same manner as the committed capacity of the
existing generating units at the power plant is determined;

     (g)  "new generating unit" means a generating unit that is
constructed after January 1, 2001 and is designed to use common facilities.


Effect of this Regulation
2   Neither the enactment nor the implementation of this Regulation is
considered to be a "change in law" as defined in the power purchase
arrangements.


Contribution to costs of common facilities
3(1)  Where the owner of one or more generating units at a power plant
constructs a new generating unit at the power plant, the owner must pay a
share of the costs of the common facilities at the power plant,

     (a)  as specified in subsection (2), and

     (b)  as calculated under subsection (3).

(2)  Each owner referred to in subsection (1) must pay

     (a)  an amount in respect of the common facilities referred to in
Column 4 of the Schedule, and

     (b)  if the new generating unit is designed to use the common
facilities referred to in any or all of Columns 1 to 3 of the Schedule, an
amount in respect of those facilities.

(3)  An amount payable under subsection (2) in respect of a new generating
unit at a power plant is calculated by multiplying

     (a)  the amount shown in the appropriate column of the Schedule
which is opposite to the number of years remaining in the term of the power
purchase arrangement that applies to the existing generating units at the
power plant,

by

     (b)  the maximum continuous rating of the new generating unit.

(4)  To determine the number of years remaining in the term of a power
purchase arrangement for the purpose of subsection (3)(a), the number

     (a)  must be calculated from the in-service date for the new
generating unit that is constructed at the power plant, and

     (b)  must be rounded up to the next full year where there is a
portion of a year remaining in the term.


Reduced contribution
4(1)  Where an owner referred to in section 3(1) considers that an amount
calculated under section 3(3) exceeds the cost to the owner of constructing
its own facility for the purpose of a new generating unit, the owner may
offer to pay a lesser amount.

(2)  The balancing pool administrator may agree to accept a lesser amount
in place of an amount calculated under section 3(3), if in the opinion of
the balancing pool administrator the lesser amount represents the minimum
reduction of the amount calculated under section 3(3) that is necessary to
cause the owner to use a common facility for the purpose of the new
generating unit instead of constructing its own facility.


Payment of contribution
5(1)  An owner referred to in section 3(1) must make a payment required
under this Regulation

     (a)  to the balancing pool administrator, and

     (b)  on or before the in-service date for the new generating unit
that is constructed at the power plant occurs.

(2)  The balancing pool administrator may accept an earlier discounted
payment if the balancing pool administrator and the owner agree to the
amount of the discount for early payment.


Other costs
6   An amount payable under this Regulation by an owner referred to in
section 3(1) is in addition to any other cost incurred by the owner that
may be necessary to enable the owner to make use of the common facilities
at a power plant for the purpose of the new generating unit.


Expiry
7   For the purpose of ensuring that this Regulation is reviewed for
ongoing relevancy and necessity, with the option that it may be repassed in
its present or an amended form following a review, this Regulation expires
on April 30, 2010.
