Regulator takes SA wind farms to court

The Australian Energy Regular has opened court proceedings against four South Australian wind farm operators it alleges failed to perform properly during a statewide blackout in 2016.

The action came before the Federal Court for a case management conference in Adelaide on Friday with the regulator arguing AGL Energy Ltd, Neoen SA, Pacific Hydro Ltd and Tilt Renewables all breached the National Electricity Rules.

The case relates to the performance of wind farms during the severe weather event that swept across SA in September 2016 and which ultimately triggered the statewide power outage.
