- Diesel generator with a maximum capacity of approximately 505kW located within Blue Lake Milling Pty Ltd, Bordertown.
In assessing a variation to an electricity generation licence, the Commission considers the application against the relevant licensing provisions set out in the Electricity Act 1996 (Electricity Act). It will also have regard to its primary objective under the Essential Services Commission Act 2002 (ESC Act), 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.
The application is subject to a public consultation period closing on 27 November 2020. The Commission welcomes submissions on any matters relevant to the application.
Please refer to the variation history in the licence for further information on variations approved by the Commission, pursuant to the criteria in the Electricity Act and the ESC Act.
