THE NON-DOMESTIC RENEWABLE HEAT INCENTIVE: FURTHER PROPOSED AMENDMENTS
Government response to consultation (Chapters 3-6) released in may, the government will allow the replacement of broken boilers and keep the original installation tariff ( subject to conditions), stating:
“The consultation proposed to introduce an amendment to the regulations to enable participants to replace their plant and stay on the same tariff for the remainder of their participation on the scheme. The government has decided to implement this proposal. The provisions for replacement plant will come into force on 1 October 2018.”
“The consultation proposed that the replacement plant should be a new, ‘like-for-like’ replacement, where ‘like-for-like’ refers to the technology type and capacity.”
“All replacement plant will be subject to the accreditation criteria that applied to the original installation. The one exception to this is that all replacement biomass boilers will be required to meet current air quality requirements,”
“Replacement plant will be able to maintain their original RHI tariff for any capacity up to that of the original plant. Any capacity beyond that of the original RHI accreditation will not be eligible to receive support payments.”
