Background

On 21 November 2018, the Commission issued an electricity generation licence to Lincoln Gap Wind Farm Pty Ltd to operate 59 wind turbines with a total capacity of 212.4 MW. The Commission undertook a round of public consultation in relation to the application and received no submissions from stakeholders.

The Commission assessed Lincoln Gap Wind Farm Pty Ltd’s application 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. It has therefore approved the application.
