Approval granted for variation to electricity generation licence application – SA Water
27 Oct 2021
On 21 October 2021, the Commission varied the electricity generation licence to South Australian Water Corporation for the operation of a further generating plant at the Adelaide Desalination Plant, increasing the total site generating capacity to 34.17 megavolts amperes, a maximum export level of 26.1 megawatts (MW) and registered capacity of 26.1MW, located at Lonsdale.
The Commission assessed this application against the relevant provisions within the Electricity Act 1996 and the Essential Services Commission Act 2002 and determined that all relevant criteria under those Acts have been satisfied. It has therefore approved the application.
