Information on take-up was included in the Impact Assessment of the feed-in tariffs (FITs) scheme published under the previous Administration in February 2010. However, details on level of projections of all eligible technologies under the scheme was sent to electricity suppliers at the start of the scheme. This information was also provided in response to specific requests and used in meetings with stakeholders.

It confirms projections of 20,309 solar PV installations in 2010-11 with no large scale schemes in FITs during the first three years of FITs.

A copy of the projections can be found in the House Library.
