Renewable Heat Incentive Extended

After some considerable delay, DECC have at last announced the extensions to the commercial Renewable Heat Incentive.

Of particular interest are the new capacity bands for Anaerobic Digestion, meaning that CHP heat for new installations of all sizes will be eligible for tariffs. The sub 200kWth band remains at 7.5p/kWh and to this are added a tariff of 5.9p/kWh from 200kWth to 600kWth and 2p/kWh for larger CHPs. These rates apply from spring 2014.
