Legal Header

A notice of hearing is a legal document that announces an AER hearing. We hold hearings to make decisions on applications, regulatory appeals, and other matters related to energy development.

We publish all hearing notices to this page and often in local or regional newspapers. We also send notices directly to interested parties, and anyone who files a statement of concern related to the application.

Why It’s Important

  1. The notice of hearing tells you where to get more information about the energy project and the hearing, and when and where the hearing will be held. It will often announce a hearing information session or prehearing meeting if either is planned.
  2. The notice of hearing also explains how you can apply to participate in the hearing. If you want to participate, you must file a request with us by the deadline set out in the notice of hearing. If you miss the deadline, you might not be allowed to participate.
  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.

We also issue other notices related to hearings, including scheduling, rescheduling, adjourning, or cancelling hearings.
