South Australian electricity customers can expect even greater savings from the proposed new interconnector between South Australia and New South Wales.
According to updated independent modelling, South Australian households can expect to save an average of $100 per year once the new interconnector, called Project EnergyConnect, is complete while businesses can also expect higher savings, proportional to their energy use.
ElectraNet and TransGrid have today welcomed the approval by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER) of the regulatory investment test for transmission (RIT-T) for Project EnergyConnect.
The South Australian State Planning Commission (SPC) recently issued ElectraNet with the Guidelines for the preparation of the Environmental Impact Statement (Guidelines) for the South Australian section of Project EnergyConnect.
Project EnergyConnect, the proposed new interconnector between South Australia and New South Wales, has been listed by the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) as a Group 1 (Priority Project) in its 2020 Draft Integrated System Plan (ISP) released today.
More than 13,000 people attended the annual Riverland Field Days in Barmera on September 13 and 14, providing a great opportunity for ElectraNet to promote Project EnergyConnect and the role we play in the state’s electricity network.
