Despite the stable volumes, the installation rate remained well below  2014 levels, with around 600MW installed during the year, down 11 per cent on the same period a year ago.

In the latest month, prices had edges slightly lower. System sizes grew to an average 5.2kW, but this was driven by sharp growth in the 75-100kW market as large commercial installations grew more popular.
