To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change with reference to paragraph 32 of his Department's consultation on Comprehensive Review Phase 1 - Tariffs for Solar PV, published on 31 October 2011, whether his Department has made an estimate of the average time lag between when a project is installed and when it is confirmed on Ofgem's central fit register.

The average length of time between the commissioning date of a solar photovoltaic (PV) installation and the date on which it is confirmed on the Ofgem Central Feed-in Tariffs (FITs) Register is 49 days.

It is important to note that the confirmation of an installation on the Ofgem Central FIT Register is the last stage in the FITs application process, and is later than the date an installation becomes eligible for FITs payments.
