The Commission has received an application from Infigen Energy SAGT Pty Ltd an electricity generation licence in accordance with the Electricity Act 1996 (Electricity Act). The applicant is seeking to operate a generating plant with a maximum output of 122.8MW at Lonsdale. This generating plant consists of four GE TM2500 aero derivative turbines (each 30.7MW) and is currently operated by SA Power Networks.

In assessing an electricity generation licence 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, 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 Australian Energy Market Operator and the Office of the Technical Regulator. Matters related to health and environment protection are regulated under separate legislative frameworks.

Infigen Energy SAGT Pty Ltd’s application is subject to a public consultation period closing on 3 April 2020. The Commission welcomes submissions on any matters relevant to the application.
