ENA welcomes SA Government support for interconnector study

The Energy Networks Association (ENA) welcomed today’s announcement by the South Australian (SA) Government that it will contribute $500,000 to study the feasibility of a new high voltage electricity transmission interconnector.

ElectraNet, operator of South Australia’s transmission network, will examine the economic viability of a new interconnector linking South Australia with the eastern states, as a high priority, in a $1 million project over the next 12 months.

ENA Chief Executive Officer, John Bradley, supported examination of the potential for additional interconnector capacity and welcomed the contribution of the SA Government to help fast-track the study.
