RHI Cut in Small Commercial Biomass announced

As anticipated, DECC has announced a 10% cut in the RHI for Small Commercial Biomass from the 1st October 2014. The new tariff for installations accredited on or after 1st October 2014 can be seen in the table below:

Tier Current RateRate from 1st October 2014
1 8.4p/kWh 7.6p/kWh
2 2.2p/kWh 2.0p/kWh

Small Commercial Biomass is subject to a 10% cut due to its growth rate being 224% of the anticipated growth rate. This exceeds the 150% growth rate trigger necessary for a 10% degression. Additionally, the total scheme expenditure trigger of 50% was also exceeded due to a 38% growth during the previous three months.

Regarding other tariff categories, Large Biomass expenditure declined by 45% whilst Medium Biomass also declined but to a much lesser extent. Both of these tariff categories have not surpassed their respective expenditure thresholds and will therefore not be subject to tariff cuts.

With only a month before the cut in Small Commercial Biomass is introduced, now is the time to get your installation completed and accredited. For further information on incentives and the future of the RHI scheme, contact us now!
