On 1 May the AER published a Final Decision granting SA Power Networks a variation of an existing ring-fencing waiver to extend the waiver expiry date.
The waiver variation allows SA Power Networks to continue to operate and maintain two temporary generation sites on behalf of the South Australian government. The project is fully financed by the South Australian Government and SA Power Networks is restricted in how it can use this generation capacity under the waiver conditions.
The original waiver expires on 1 June 2020. The waiver has been varied so the expiry date is 31 June 2021 for the Temporary Generation North site and 1 December 2020 for the Temporary Generation South site. The conditions of the waiver are outlined in our Final Decision.
