More information

Work on reducing the queue over the past months has been successful.  There has been an increase in the queue in December 2018 and it has now exceeded the target of 200.

December 2018 was the end of a tariff period, so a rise in applications received was anticipated.

The increase in queue length is as a result of targetted work on older, more complex applcations.  A number of these have now been accredited with others going through the formal review process.   This has also impacted on the average days to process appplications, which has inceased slightly as a result of these older applications being reviewed, but has reduced the number of older applications.

An increase in monthly applications continues to be experienced.  This was anticipated and is expected to increase as the FITs scheme moves to closure.
