EPBC referral decision

19th July 2019

ElectraNet has been advised that the Commonwealth Department of the Environment and Energy (DoEE) has determined the South Australian component of Project EnergyConnect is to be a “Controlled Action”.


Now this determination has been made, we anticipate that the project will be assessed by the South Australian Government under the terms of the Bilateral Agreement between the South Australian and Commonwealth Governments.


We are now awaiting a decision from the South Australian State Commission Assessment Panel (SCAP) on the environmental impact assessment guidelines that must be followed for the project.


ElectraNet will continue its proactive engagement with the community and stakeholders as part of the project.
