ApplicationBack to top
On 27 April 2017, SA Power Networks submitted to the AER a waiver application under clause 5.2 of the Electricity ring-fencing guideline 2016 (Guideline).
The South Australian Government has asked SA Power Networks to undertake a project to set up and operate 200MW of temporary generation by 1 December 2017. The temporary generation will provide backup in the event of load shedding until the South Australian Government’s new permanent generator is operational. SA Power Networks submitted that the waiver is required in order to deliver this project by the proposed operational date without breaching the Guideline.
