7  Transitional arrangements

Despite section 6 of this Instrument, if:

(a)   a solar (photovoltaic) system was installed prior to the commencement of this Instrument; and

(b)   the number of the zone that would have applied to that system under the Renewable Energy (Electricity) (Zone Ratings and Zones for Solar (Photovoltaic) Systems) Instrument 2018, as in force immediately before the commencement of this Instrument, is lower than the number mentioned under section 6 of this Instrument;

then the zone is the lower number.
