On 18 April 2018, the Commission  issued an electricity generation licence to Electrolux Home Products Pty Ltd to enable the operation of stage one of its generation plant consisting of a 330 kilowatt (kW) solar photovoltaic system.

The Commission assessed stage one of Electrolux Home Product Pty Ltd’s project for an electricity generation licence against the relevant provisions of the Electricity Act 1996 and the Essential Services Commission Act 2002 and determined that all relevant criteria under those Acts have been satisfied. 

Electrolux Home Product Pty Ltd applied to the Commission for an electricity generation licence on 8 March 2018.  Electrolux Home Products Pty Ltd is seeking to operate a 2.86 megawatt (MW) generating plant at its Dudley Park site. The generating plant is being completed in two stages, consisting of:

  • Stage1: 330 kilowatt (kW) solar photovoltaic system, and
  • Stage 2: 2.0MW solar photovoltaic system and 500kW battery.

After SA Power Networks has completed its connection assessment of the additional solar system and battery, Electrolux will seek a licence variation to include Stage 2 on its licence.

The Commission undertook a round of public consultation in relation to stage one and stage two of Electrolux Home product Pty Ltd’s project and received no submissions from stakeholders. In making its assessment, the Commission sought technical advice from the Technical Regulator.
