More information

Application processing has been consistently high. However, an expected increase in application processing did not occur in January 2020 due to a temporary reduction in headcount. There was a spike in applications received in March 2020, this can be attributed the tariff degression, in relation to large GSHPs. This spike has led to a temporary increase in the queue. An expected drop in applications in April 2020 has allowed the team to focus on existing applications and as a result the queue has decreased, and this trend has continued throughout 2020. November has seen an increase of new applications, and hence larger queue length, which will continue as scheme closure approaches.
