The Commission has received a request from Lumo Generation SA Pty Ltd to vary its electricity generation licence
to enable the operation of 16 diesel fueled
reciprocating engine driven generation units with a maximum capacity of 28.8 megawatts (MW).
Current status is Initiate
Lumo Generation SA Pty Ltd currently holds an electricity generation licence authorising the operation of diesel power stations at Port Stanvac, Lonsdale and Angaston. Lumo Generation SA Pty Ltd is seeking to vary its licence to authorise the operation of 16 diesel fueled reciprocating engine driven generation units with a maximum capacity of 28.8 megawatts (MW) at Tailem Bend.
In assessing a request for variation, the Commission considers the relevant licensing provisions set out in the Act. It will also have regard 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 consults with the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) and the Office of the Technical Regulator, which have separate stand-alone roles in the electricity industry.
The request submitted by Lumo Generation SA Pty Ltd is subject to a public consultation period which closes on 24 July 2017. Interested parties wishing to make a submission on this application should prepare a submission which addresses the criteria noted above.
