There's money in them thar transmission lines!

(Rimbey, AB) The Lavesta Area Group completed and filed its final submission, to the Alberta Utilities Commission, in regards to a complaint that alleges the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) acted dishonestly and violated the public’s trust.

Lavesta’s complaint follows recent allegations by Enmax Corporation that the government of Alberta held secret (unethical) meetings to facilitate the passage of the controversial Bill 50. Bill 50 amended existing legislation to streamline the approval of tens of billions of dollars of public funds for transmission system upgrades, which many industry consumers believe only benefit large electricity producers, to the detriment of the public.

Lavesta’s complaint, attached to this new release, raises serious questions concerning the alleged unethical and unprofessional behaviour of the AESO. Unethical controversies have plagued Alberta’s electrical transmission industry since the implementation of deregulation.

The Lavesta Area Group supports a full, public and transparent, independent investigation into all the allegations plaguing Alberta Interconnected Transmission System (AIES) industry.
