The Commission has received an application from Y.E.S. Energy (SA) Pty Ltd to vary its electricity generation licence to authorise the operation of five additional solar PV generating plant, each with an export capacity of 200kW, at various locations. 

In assessing a variation application, the Commission considers the relevant licensing provisions set out in the Electricity Act 1996 (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 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.

The application is subject to a public consultation period closing on 5 October 2020. The Commission welcomes submissions on any matters relevant to the application.

Background

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 1996 and the Essential Services Commission Act 2002.
