Initiate

The Commission has received an application from Cowell Electric Supply Pty Ltd in accordance with the Electricity Act 1996 (Electricity Act). The licensee is seeking to vary its electricity distribution licence to remove the operation of a distribution network at Woomera as this network is now operated by Enerven Pty Ltd.

In assessing an electricity distribution licence, the Commission considers the application against 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, along and other factors as they apply to the Commission's role as an economic regulator of the South Australian electricity industry. 

The application for variation submitted by Cowell Electric Supply Pty Ltd is subject to a public consultation period closing on 4 May 2018. Interested parties wishing to make a submission on the application should prepare a submission, which addresses the criteria noted above.

 

Background

On 8 March 2016, Cowell Electric Supply Pty Ltd (Cowell Electric) applied to the Commission for an electricity generation licence and variations to its retail and distribution licences.

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

The Commission has assessed the application against the relevant provisions of the Electricity Act 1996 and the Essential Services Commission Act 2002 (as they apply to the Commission's role as an economic regulator of the South Australian electricity industry) and determined that all relevant criteria have been satisfied.

The electricity generation licence and variations to its retail and distribution licences were issued to Cowell Electric on 31 March 2016.
