Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 06 Hansard (Thursday, 7 June 2018) . . 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.

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.
