Approval granted for variation of electricity generation licence - South Australian Water Corporation and Lofty Ranges Power

04 Oct 2022


On 29 September 2022, the Commission varied South Australian Water Corporation’s (SA Water) electricity generation licence, authorising the takeover of operations of a 1.86 megawatt mini-hydro generator located at the Hope Valley reservoir on Grand Junction Road which was jointly licensed to SA Water and Lofty Ranges Power Pty Ltd. The joint licence has now been surrendered.

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.

A copy of the licence may be accessed through the project page below.
