(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.
