Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 6 Hansard (7 June) . . Page.. 2296 ..


Under the contract-for-difference design of the ACT's large-scale feed-in tariff payments, each generator is paid the wholesale price of electricity at the time of generation by the National Electricity Market while the difference between its feed-in tariff price and the wholesale price of electricity is paid to them by Evoenergy. Past and projected future annual feed-in tariff payments to each generator are detailed in the answer to questions 1321 and 1323.

Generator Feed-in tariff price ($/MWh) Capacity (MW) Royalla solar farm $186.00 20.0 Williamsdale Solar Park (large feed-in tariff part) $186.00 7.0 Maoneng Solar Park (Mugga Lane) $178.00 13.0 Ararat wind farm $87.00 80.5 Coonooer Bridge wind farm $81.50 19.4 Hornsdale Wind Farm Pty Ltd Stage 1 $92.00 100 Sapphire Wind Farm $89.10 100.0

2. The following wind farms will not have commenced feed-in tariff supported generation by the end of the 2017-18 financial year: Hornsdale Wind Farm stage 2, Hornsdale Wind Farm stage 3 and Crookwell 2 Wind Farm. The table below lists the feed-in tariff prices that will be paid to these generators. As in the response to part 1, the large-scale feed-in tariff prices paid to each generator are not adjusted for inflation and remain constant, in nominal terms, in each financial year.

Generator Feed-in tariff price ($/MWh) Capacity (MW) Hornsdale 2 Wind Farm $77.00 100.0 Hornsdale 3 Wind Farm $78.00 109.0 Crookwell 2 Wind Farm $90.40 91.0

Energy—consumption (Question No 1320)

Mr Coe asked the Minister for Climate Change and Sustainability, upon notice, on 13 April 2018:

How much of the electricity generated from the generators that currently hold feed-in tariff entitlements as per question on notice No 984 has been consumed in the ACT in the (a) 2013-14, (b) 2014-15, (c) 2015-16, (d) 2016-17 and (e) 2017-18 to date, financial years.

Mr Rattenbury: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

All of the solar and wind farms supported by ACT large-scale feed-in tariff payments generate into the National Electricity Market (NEM) of which the ACT grid is part. While none of the feed-in tariff supported wind farms generate directly into the ACT distribution network, their generation displaces non-renewable electricity drawn by the ACT grid from the New South Wales grid.
