Proposal by market participant 
5(1)  For the purposes of this section,
	(a)	"incumbent TFO", in respect of a transmission facility that is 
the subject of a proposal, means
	(i)	the person determined under
	(A)	section 24(1)(a), 
	(B) 	section 24.1(1) as it read at any time before 
September 22, 2014, or 
	(C) 	section 24.2(2)
		of the Transmission Regulation (AR 86/2007) to be 
eligible to apply for the construction or operation, or 
both, as the case may be, of the transmission facility, or
	(ii)	a person having responsibility under section 24(1)(b) of 
the Transmission Regulation (AR 86/2007) in respect of 
the transmission facility;
	(b)	"proposal" means a proposal under this section; 
	(c) 	"successor" means a person who, at any time after ownership 
of a transmission facility that is the subject of a proposal is 
transferred by a market participant to an incumbent TFO, 
acquires ownership of the property in respect of which the 
transmission facility was constructed to provide system 
access service. 
(2)  A market participant may, in accordance with this section, submit 
a proposal to the ISO for the construction and temporary operation of a 
transmission facility.
(3)  A proposal may be submitted under this section only
	(a) 	in respect of a radial transmission facility, unless the market 
participant and incumbent TFO agree to a different 
configuration of transmission facility, 
	(b)	if the transmission facility is proposed to be constructed by 
the market participant to provide system access service solely 
to the market participant, and
	(c) 	if the transmission facility is proposed to be jointly operated 
by the market participant and the incumbent TFO for a 
temporary period specified in the proposal.
(4)  Subsection (3) applies whether the proposal 
	(a) 	is submitted for the purposes of section 35(1)(b) of the Act to 
meet a need identified in a needs identification document, or 
	(b) 	is a proposal for which, pursuant to this Regulation, no needs 
identification document is required.
(5)  Where the proposal is one for which no needs identification 
document is required, the ISO must approve or refuse to approve the 
proposal in the same manner as if it were acting under section 36(1) of 
the Act.
(6)  If the ISO approves the proposal, it may specify a time within 
which the market participant and incumbent TFO must apply for a 
permit under the Hydro and Electric Energy Act to construct the 
transmission facility and a licence to jointly operate the transmission 
facility for the temporary period referred to in subsection (3)(c).
(7)  Where the ISO approves the proposal the market participant and 
incumbent TFO must,
	(a) 	before applying for any permit, licence or approval under the 
Hydro and Electric Energy Act to construct or operate the 
transmission facility, enter into a written agreement under 
which ownership of the transmission facility will transfer 
from the market participant to the incumbent TFO on the 
expiry of the temporary period referred to in subsection 
(3)(c), and
	(b) 	before operating the transmission facility, enter into a written 
agreement under which they will jointly operate it.
(8)  Despite a transfer of ownership of a transmission facility from the 
market participant to the incumbent TFO, the market participant and its 
successors, if any, remain responsible to pay the costs of any liability 
incurred by the incumbent TFO as a result of acts or omissions by the 
market participant during design or construction of the transmission 
facility.
(9)  Where
	(a) 	ownership of a transmission facility has transferred from the 
market participant to the incumbent TFO, and
	(b) 	the incumbent TFO is unable to recover costs referred to in 
subsection (8) from the market participant or its successor 
because of the insolvency of the market participant or 
successor,
the Commission must, in making a decision respecting rates for the 
TFO, consider that the costs are prudent unless an interested party 
satisfies the Commission that those costs are not prudent.  
Approval of cost estimate
6(1)  In this section, "transmission facility" means a transmission 
facility as defined in the Transmission Regulation (AR 86/2007) that is 
subject to a rule referred to in subsection (2).
(2)  Subject to subsection (3), the Commission must make rules 
identifying the transmission facilities or classes of transmission 
facilities to which this section applies.
(3)  This section does not apply to transmission facilities to which 
section 24.2 of the Transmission Regulation (AR 86/2007) applies.
(4)  Where construction of a transmission facility is proposed, the TFO 
must submit an estimate of the project costs to the Commission for 
approval.
(5)  The cost estimate must be submitted by the TFO
	(a) 	unless clause (b) applies, within 180 days after the day the 
Commission issues a permit to the TFO under the Hydro and 
Electric Energy Act to construct the transmission facility, or
	(b) 	within a time period ordered by the Commission, which may 
be a longer or shorter period than that provided in clause (a). 
(6)  The Commission may make rules establishing factors for it to 
consider in determining whether to approve a cost estimate under this 
section.
(7)  If the Commission finds the cost estimate submitted by the TFO is 
too high or too low, the Commission may approve an amount of costs 
that is higher or lower than that in the cost estimate.
(8)  The TFO may, at any time after a cost estimate is approved but 
before construction of the transmission facility is completed, apply to 
the Commission to increase the approved cost estimate and where such 
an application is made, subsection (7) and any rules made under 
subsection (6) apply in respect of the application. 
(9)  In making a decision respecting rates for the TFO, the Commission 
must consider the actual project costs of the transmission facility to be 
prudent if the actual project costs are equal to or less than a cost 
estimate approved under this section.
