The Commission has received an application from Flinders University for an electricity generation licence variation in accordance with the Electricity Act 1996 (Electricity Act). The applicant is seeking to operate  two additional generating plant with a maximum export limit of 200kW located at:

  • Flinders University Sturt Campus (East) – maximum capacity of 500kVA with a maximum export limit of 75kW, and
  • Flinders University Sturt Campus (South and West) – maximum capacity 520kVA with a maximum export limit of 125kW.

In assessing an electricity generation licence variation application, the Commission considers the application against the relevant licensing provisions set out in the Electricity Act. It will also have regard to its primary objective under the Essential Services Commission Act 2002 (ESC Act), 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 an 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.

The application is subject to a public consultation period closing on 2 December 2020. The Commission welcomes submissions on any matters relevant to the application.

Please refer to the variation history in the licence for further information on variations approved by the Commission, pursuant to the criteria in the Electricity Act and the ESC Act.
