Senator BOB BROWN (Leader of the Australian Greens) (6:24 PM) —by leave—I move Australian Green amendments (8A) and (8B) on sheet 5887 revised:

(8A) Schedule 1, item 6, page 8 (line 1), after “However,”, insert “subject to subsection (3A),”.

(8B) Schedule 1, item 6, page 8 (after line 3), after subsection 23B(3), insert:

      (3A)    However, in the case of an off-grid small generation unit, the regulations must provide for a number of certificates to be multiplied in relation to the first 20kW of the rated power output of the unit.

       (3B)    In subsection (3A):

off-grid small generation unit means:

              (a)    a small generation unit at least 1 kilometre from the nearest main-grid line; or

              (b)    in the case of a small generation unit less than 1 kilometre from a main-grid line—the owner has provided written evidence from the local network service provider that the total cost of connecting the unit to the main-grid is more than $30,000, making it uneconomic to connect the unit to the main-grid.

Question negatived.
