TransAlta Agrees to Pay $56 Million Settlement for Inflating Alberta Energy Prices

TransAlta has agreed to a $56 million settlement for inflating electricity bills in Alberta. The Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) found in July that TransAlta had manipulated prices by shutting down six coal-fired generators during periods of peak electricity demand in 2010, and again in 2011. David Gray, an electricity consultant who is organizing a class-action lawsuit, says the proposed settlement is a lot of money but ‘the trouble is none of that will go back to consumers’. The company states it will 'pay a total amount of $56 million, including approximately $27 million as a repayment of 'economic benefit' under the legislation, $4 million to cover the MSA's legal and related costs, and a $25-million administrative penalty.’ The company said it will make the payment in two installments the first of $30 million will be paid a month after the deal is approved and the remainder would be paid one year later. The agreement will be reviewed at a hearing later this year, and Law says any money recouped will go into Alberta's general revenue fund.

TransAlta Announces 239 More Jobs Cut, Most in Calgary

TransAlta announced that it is cutting 239 positions, most of them at the company's corporate head office in Calgary. The move is expected to save the power generating company $25 million. The job cuts as part of a corporate decision to 'streamline operations, decentralize decision-making and reduce management to meet TransAlta's goal of the lowest-cost producer in Alberta so that the company can be profitable in any market condition.
