More information

Application volumes had gradually decreased month on month for Q1 of FY 18/19, however this has been increasing since July.  In October, the applications received were at the highest point, YTD.  This has resulted in an increase in the queue.

The increase in applications received has been due to regulation changes impacting heat pumps whereby applications submitted on or after the 22nd May 2018 require metering for performance.

We have seen a decrease in November and December, due to a combination of increased applications processed and a reduction in applications received.
