The Commission has received an application from Goyder Wind Farm Common Asset Pty Ltd for an exemption from the requirement to hold an electricity transmission licence in accordance with the Electricity Act 1996. The applicant is seeking to provide transmission services to two related Goyder Wind Farm entities, as an intermediary between the Goyder wind generating plant, located approximately 20km south of Burra, to the ElectraNet Robertstown substation. 

In assessing an electricity transmission exemption application, the Commission considers the application against the relevant 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 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 29 August 2022. The Commission welcomes submissions on any matters relevant to the application.
