During 2015, the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme continued to encourage investment in small-scale renewable energy systems. These are mainly solar panel systems on residential rooftops but also commercial-sized solar panel systems such as those on schools, businesses and hospitals. While the number of installations was less than last year, continuing a gradual downward trend since 2011, the average system capacity has increased.12
12 The data that informs this chapter is accurate as at 25 February 2016. However, small-scale technology certificates can be created up to 12 months after a system is installed so we expect a slight increase in the final number of installations in 2015.
