The Commission’s Decision on ATCO Electric’s Jasper Project Contraventions

In Proceeding 27013, the Alberta Utilities Commission (the “Commission) issues its decision regarding the allegations that Enforcement Staff of the Commission brought against ATCO Electric Ltd. (“ATCO Electric”) regarding ATCO Electric’s sole-sourcing a major contract at above fair market value and seeking cost recovery of the project.


In 2016, ATCO Electric’s non-regulated affiliate, ATCO Structures & Logistics Ltd. (“ATCO S&L”), entered an agreement with Simpcw Resources LLP. to provide Simpcw with electrical transmission and distribution project opportunities. The agreement included Simpcw’s provision of a Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project contract to ATCO S&L. Simpcw later expressed that they expected to be directly awarded ATCO Electric’s contract for matting, brushing, and hydrovac services for the Jasper Project.
