control in excess of 30% of the total maximum capability of generating 
units in Alberta.

subsection was exceeded as a result of an unexpected decrease in the 
denominator of the formula referred to in subsection (2).
(7)  Where the Commission makes a decision under subsection (6), the 
market participant shall not increase its offer control further until the 
Commission decides that the market participant is under the percentage 
limit established under subsection (5).
ISO matters

asset identification associated with each offer made to the power pool 
that is available for dispatch.

the public under subsection (1), when the ISO's information 
technology systems are capable of identifying and tracking 
that information.
