In the latest quarterly report:

• STC creation increased 2 per cent in the December quarter, with the increase in PV creation more than off-setting the decline in SWH creation

• STCs submitted for creation in 2014 averaged over 350,000 per week which was 9 per cent higher than the STC target

• We estimate that in 2014 the total solar PV capacity installed amounted to 817.5 MW. This represents a 3.2 per cent increase on 2013 levels of 792 MW

• Spot STC price closed the December quarter at $38.55 in the most volatile quarter for the year
