The applicant is seeking to operate a transmission line from the Goyder wind farms, located approximately 20km south of Burra to the ElectraNet Robertstown substation.
Current status is Final
On 25 January 2023, the Commission, with the approval of the Minister for Energy and Mining, pursuant to section 80(1) of the Electricity Act 1996 (Electricity Act), granted Goyder Wind Farm Common Asset Pty Ltd an exemption from the requirement to hold an electricity transmission licence.
The exemption authorises the operation of a transmission line connecting the Goyder Wind Farm, located approximately 20km south of Burra, South Australia, to the ElectraNet Robertstown substation.

The Commission undertook a round of public consultation in relation to the application and received no submissions from stakeholders.
