AER: SA Power Networks ring-fencing waiver application (submissions closed)
The AER has received an application for a waiver from the Ring‑fencing Guideline from SA Power Networks for its temporary generation project.
The temporary generation project is being undertaken at the request of the South Australian Government to ensure backup capacity is installed and operational by 1 December 2017 to meet demand in South Australia. The project is a temporary measure and would be decommissioned when the SA Government’s own new generation capacity will be operational. The project is being fully financed by the SA Government and SA Power Networks is restricted in how it can use this capacity. The AER’s Draft Decision proposes to grant a conditional waiver to SA Power Networks.
submissions on SA Power Networks application and our draft decision closed Friday 9 June 2017.
