Details have been announced regarding a change to the domestic RHI tariff for biomass boiler installations.

The degression trigger for biomass has been passed, meaning the current domestic RHI tariff of 4.68p per kWh has now reduced to 4.21p per kWh for all new applications made.  If you joined the scheme before 1st January 2017 you will not be affected and your tariff rate stays the same.

To give an illustration of domestic RHI payback based on the revised rate, a property with a combined heating and hot water requirement of 59,000 kWh per annum will receive payments of £2,489 per annum, totalling £17,423 over the 7 year scheme. 

More information about the scheme can be found on the Ofgem website: www.ofgem.gov.uk/environmental-programmes

Thinking of replacing your heating system? Need a new boiler?
Make the switch to sustainable biomass with a fully funded Ashwell Biomass ESCo (Energy Service Contract) solution.


Benefits of an ESCo:

With an ESCo contract you pay a price per kWh for heating and hot water. All capital costs, service and maintenance fees and wood fuel costs are covered by the ESCo company. There are many benefits to this type of funding and system:
  • Heat for less – in most cases the price per kWh of the ESCo is less than an equivalent heating oil/LPG/electricity solution (including on-going maintenance costs)
  • The company can use its capital to invest in its core business rather than heating equipment
  • Little management involvement of the system – the ESCo manages the installation and the day to day operation of the boiler system (although it is advisable that at least one on site person receives basic training)
  • By supplying the fuel as well as the maintenance there is an incentive for the ESCo provider to supply quality fuel that will minimise maintenance and down time as the ESCo only gets paid when the boiler is running
  • In most cases the new biomass boiler will be more efficient than the old boilers it is replacing
  • The company can achieve carbon savings in its operations without having to invest its own capital
  • Environmental issues are now a key part of corporate social responsibility and switching to a biomass boiler provides companies with an important statement about sustainability

The recent Government Spending Review and Autumn Statement outlined some key developments with the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

These include an increase in funding for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) to £1.15 billion in 2021 to ensure that the UK continues to make progress towards its climate goals while reforming the scheme to improve value for money, delivering savings of almost £700 million by 2020-21.

This announcement is a welcome boost for the industry and we await further details of the reforms over the coming months.

If you are thinking about making the switch to biomass and wish to know more about the Renewable Heat Incentive, please contact a member of our sales team.
