The Commission has received an application from Iberdrola Australia Energy Markets Pty Ltd for an electricity generation licence transfer in accordance with the Electricity Act 1996 (Electricity Act). The applicant is seeking to take over the operations of four 34.22MVA GE TM2500 Gas Turbine Generators, currently licensed under the related entity Iberdrola Australia SAGT Pty Ltd, which are located at Lonsdale. The applicant is also seeking to change the location of the generators from Lonsdale to Bolivar. 

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

The application is subject to a public consultation period closing on 20 June 2022. The Commission welcomes submissions on any matters relevant to the application.
