Solar laws appeal before court today
The Clean Energy Council described the Supreme Court ruling last week as “a victory for common sense”.
It came when Maryborough Solar – owners of the Brigalow Solar Farm in southern Queensland – challenged the Electrical Safety (Solar Farms) Amendment Regulation 2019 (Qld), which requires the use of licensed electrical workers to mount and fix unplugged solar panels in plants over 100KW.
Industrial Relations Minister Grace Grace, announcing intentions to lodge an appeal last week, said the regulations had been developed following advice from Crown Law and drafted by the Office of Queensland Parliamentary Counsel, which was the general process for the introduction of all regulations.
“We introduced these regulations following advice from an expert panel, including the Electrical Safety Commissioner, to ensure Queensland has the highest-possible electrical safety standards for its rapidly-growing solar electricity generation industry,” she said.
