Licensing arrangements for generators in South Australia - final decision
13 Dec 2019
Improvements to technical standards in the National Electricity Rules mean that some of the Commission’s 2017 model licence conditions for new generators are no longer needed.
The three conditions to be retained are condition 9 (disturbance ride-through – voltage phase angle shift), condition 11 (system strength) and condition 16 (system restoration).
These changes only relate to the 15 licence conditions introduced in 2017 and are effective from the date of release of this Final decision. The changes apply for new generator licence applications from 13 December 2019. The conditions in place within existing licences remain unchanged. Proponents of licence applications currently being processed can choose whether to re-apply.
