The Commission has received an application from AGL Torrens Island Battery Pty Ltd for an electricity generation licence to operate a 250 megawatt battery generating plant, located on Torrens Island. The generating plant will be located on the northwest side of the existing AGL Torrens Island Power Station, and will be connected to the Torrens Island 275kV switchyard.
In assessing an electricity generation licence application, the Commission considers the application against the relevant licensing provisions set out in the Electricity Act 1996. 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.
The application is subject to a public consultation period closing on 2 May 2022. The Commission welcomes submissions on any matters relevant to the application.
