Under the Electricity Act 1994, the Regulator (i.e. the Director-General of the Department of Energy and Water Supply) issues authorities (licences) for generation, transmission and distribution activities in Queensland’s electricity industry.
When an applicant applies for a generation authority to connect generating plant with capacity greater than 30 megawatts (MW) to a transmission grid or supply network, the Regulator must invite interested persons to make submissions about the application.
The proposed Dysart Solar Farm is a 145.55MW solar farm to be located around 17 kilometres north-east of the township of Dysart.
Renewable Energy Developments Pty Ltd is currently the parent company of Dysart Solar Farm Pty Ltd. However ownership is expected to be transferred to Hanwha Energy Corporation, a registered company in South Korea and part of Hanwha group.
The Regulator is seeking feedback from interested persons with regards to the generation authority for the Dysart Solar Farm.
Further details are available in the Application for Electricity Generation Authority information paper (PDF, 317.1KB).
Written submissions about the proposed Dysart Solar Farm are welcome. Please send your submissions to:
