The Commission has received an application from SA Power Networks for an electricity generation licence in accordance with the Electricity Act 1996 (Electricity Act). The applicant is seeking to operate:

a 251 kilowatt rooftop solar generating plant, located at Angle Park; and
a 211 kilowatt rooftop solar generating plant, located at Marleston.

In assessing a variation application, the Commission considers 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.
SA Power Networks’ application is subject to a public consultation period closing on 3 May 2019. The Commission welcomes submissions on any matters relevant to the application.
