(R7)  Schedule 1, page 63 (after line 29), after item 119, insert:

After “However,”, insert “subject to subsections (3A) and (3C),”.

119E  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 only if the certificates relate 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.

          (3C)  The regulations must provide that the number of certificates that may be created under subsection (3A) as a result of a multiplier in subsection (2) for a period specified in column 1 of an item in the following table must not exceed the number specified in column 2 of the item.
