If you wish to make an application to the Regulator for the issue of a licence to authorise the operation of generation, transmission, distribution or retail of electricity in Tasmania please refer to the Information Guideline and Application Form.

Marshall Resources International - Generation Licence Application

The Electricity Supply Industry Act 1995 (ESI Act) provides for the Regulator to issue licences for the generation of electricity. Marshall Resources International applied to the Regulator in September 2004 for a proposed generating plant in the Cumberland Lake area in the vicinity of Trial Harbour, Tasmania. The plant's generating capacity will be approximately 4.5 MW.

The Regulator undertook consultation on the generation licence application.

A submission has been received from Mr Bruce McIntosh. The Regulator in making his decision on the application will take this submission into consideration.

The Regulator has determined to refuse the application. The decision and reasons are contained in this letter to Marshall Resources International.

(Click here to see Hydro Tasmania's Annual Reports).

The Regulator is undertaking consultation on the generation licence application, inviting written submissions on the proposal by 2 June 2004.

Green Pacific Energy Bell Bay Pty Ltd - Application for Renewal of Generation Licence

On 29 March 2004, the Regulator received an application from Green Pacific Energy Bell Bay Pty Ltd to renew its generation licence for a period of two years from 1 July 2004.
