In January the Clean Energy Regulator released its quarterly data on the number of solar systems creating Renewable Energy Certificates. The data includes certificates created to January 2, 2013 and includes installations up until the end of November 2012. As agents have 12 months from the date of system installation to create certificates, the number of monthly installations from January 2012 to date is currently understated.
A total of 1.7 million solar systems (PV and solar water heaters) have created certificates to date. Installed PV capacity across Australia is now in excess of 2,150 MW.
