The Commission has received an application from CPE Funding Pty Ltd for an electricity generation licence and the transfer of an electricity generation and distribution licence in accordance with the Electricity Act 1996 (Electricity Act).

The applicant is seeking to operate:

  • 550 kilowatt solar generating plant with an export capacity limited to 199 kilowatt, located at 90 Sherriffs Road Morphett Vale
  • a 950 kilowatt generating plant and distribution network located at 21-53 South Terrace, Murray Bridge (currently operated by EN Project Company One Pty Ltd, and
  • a 600 kilowatt generating plant and distribution network located at 182-202 Penola Road, Mt Gambier (currently operated by EN Project Company One Pty Ltd) ).

In assessing an electricity generation licence application, 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, 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.

CPE Funding Pty Ltd’s application is subject to a public consultation period closing on 5 June 2020. The Commission welcomes submissions on any matters relevant to the application.
