Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive
Switch to renewable heat - and get rewarded
If you’re a large heat user and you’re considering switching to renewable heat, the Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) could swing the balance.
The government is actively encouraging this switch through access to the Non-Domestic RHI. This 20-year index-linked subsidy is a contract that pays a quarterly incentive on every kilowatt (kW) of eligible metered heat produced from renewable sources.
RHI-eligible systems from Dallol include solid biomass fuelled systems and solid biomass contained in waste as well as biomass CHP (combined heat and power).
RHI experts to guide you through
With complex regulations and an often lengthy application process, RHI accreditation can seem unachievable.
But when you work with Dallol, you can be confident of a successful outcome and a streamlined process - which starts with the design of a great system. Our team has a solid understanding of the Non-Domestic RHI, excellent contacts within the relevant Ofgem departments and a proven track record in moving projects through the system quickly and efficiently.
We’ll ensure your project meets all the relevant criteria and help you to select a renewable system which provides value, efficiency and longevity.
Save with a heat sale agreement
Dallol can also offer a long-term heat sale agreement (HSA), also known as ESCo, where we pay for everything.
We cover the installation, fuel and maintenance; all you pay is a utility bill, usually at a discount to your current gas/oil/LPG bill. The advantage is that you get to retain your capital while reducing your existing energy spend, but better than that, because it is linked to RHI, you can achieve an index-linked future energy price going out to 20 years. Dallol has an HSA funding partner, a London based infrastructure fund, so we can provide you with everything you need to know about making huge savings through a HSA.
How RHI pays:
Eligible heat from biomass attracts a subsidy payment. Here’s how it’s worked out for Small, Medium and Large Biomass tariff:
8760 hours x boiler-plate output in kW x 35% @ £0.0311
The balance of eligible heat output @ £0.0218
So, for a 2.5MW system that produced 9,000,000kW in a year, the payment would be:
8760 x 2500 x 35% = 7,665,000kW @ £0.0311 = £238,381
9,000,000 – 7,665,000 = 1,335,000kW @ £0.0218 = £29,103
Total RHI = £267,484
For the next few months (to January 2021) it may be possible to secure a ‘Tariff Guarantee’. We have applied for over 80,000,000kW per annum of TGs so we think we can help.
The heat is on
With the new subsidy structure in place, now is the time to act. TG’s expire in January 2020 and the RHI scheme itself closes in March 2021.Find out more about RHI regulations, subsidy levels, project payback times and a HSA by talking to Dallol today.
