Pellets- Biomass

BEIS announced on 1st December 2016 that further degressions would be imposed on both the Domestic (10%) and Non-Domestic (5%) RHI tariffs, with effect from 1st January 2017.

However, in response to a consultation on changes to the Domestic RHI scheme, BEIS has today announced tariff increases for three of the eligible renewable heating technology types for the scheme – biomass, new air source heat pump (ASHP) and ground source heat pump (GSHP).   There will be no changes to tariff rates for solar thermal systems. Those who apply to the scheme on or after 14 December 2016 will be eligible for the current tariff rate at the date of applying, and then will subsequently be eligible for the increased tariff rate from the day the amended Domestic RHI Scheme Regulations come into force in spring 2017. This tariff increase will happen automatically so you don’t need to do anything.
