On 8 August 2018, the Commission varied the electricity generation licence held by SA Water to authorise the operation of a solar and batter generation plant, with a nameplate capacity of 132.5 kW, at its Crystal Brook Depot.

The Commission assessed SA Water’s application for a variation against the relevant licensing provisions set out in the Electricity Act 1996 and the Essential Services Commission Act 2002 and determined that all relevant criteria under those Acts have been satisfied.

SA Water applied to the Commission for a variation to its water licence on 30 May 2018. The Commission undertook a round of public consultation in relation to the application and received no submissions from stakeholders. In making its assessment, the Commission sought technical advice from the Technical Regulator.
