Hearing Notices

A notice of hearing is a legal document that announces an AER hearing. The AER holds hearings to decide on applications, regulatory appeals, and other matters related to energy developments.

The AER publishes all notices of hearing to this page and often in local or regional newspapers. The AER also sends notices of hearing directly to interested parties. The notice of hearing is an important document for several reasons:

  1. It has information about how you can apply to participate in the hearing. If you decide that you want to participate in the hearing, you must file a request with the AER. The AER sets deadlines for these requests in the notice of hearing. If you miss the deadline, you may be denied participation.
  2. The notice of hearing will tell you where to get more information about the energy project, contacts, dates, and locations, and it will often announce a hearing information session or prehearing meeting, if either is planned.
  3. Once a notice of hearing is issued, hearing participants may be eligible to recover some costs associated with participating in the hearing. Before spending money, see Directive 031: REDA Energy Cost Claims.

The AER also issues other notices related to hearings, including notices scheduling, rescheduling, adjourning, or cancelling hearings.
