The Commission has received an application from Social Energy Australia Pty Ltd for an electricity generation licence to operate a Virtual Power Plant. 

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 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 23 October 2020. The Commission welcomes submissions on any matters relevant to the application.
