Electrolux Home Products Pty Ltd’s current generation licence authorises the operation of a 330 kW generating plant located a Dudley Park. Electrolux Home Products Pty Ltd is seeking a variation of its licence to authorise an increase in the maximum generation export capacity from 330 kilowatts to 2.5 megawatts.
In assessing a variation application, the Commission considers the relevant licensing provisions set out in the Electricity Act 1996. It will also have regard to its primary objective under the Essential Services Commission Act 2002, being the protection of the long term interests of South Australian consumers with respect to the price, quality and reliability of essential services and other factors as they apply to the Commission's role as the economic regulator of the South Australian electricity industry.
In making its assessment, the Commission considers advice from the Office of the Technical Regulator. Matters related to health and environment protection are regulated under separate legislative frameworks and can only be considered by the Commission in context of the above mentioned criteria.
Electrolux Home Products Pty Ltd’s variation application is subject to a public consultation period closing on 6 February 2019. The Commission welcomes submissions on any matters relevant to the application.
