RHI degression announced 1st July 2015

Non-Domestic RHI Degression

The small biomass tariff (up to 199kW) will be reduced by 25% for installation accredited on or after 1st July 2015 which will reduce the payment per kWh for Tier 1 to 4.47p and Tier 2 to 1.17p.

This is as a result of higher than expected uptake on small biomass installations, the non-domestic target total for 30th April 2015 – 29th April 2016 (forecast £296.8 million) has now reached 100%, leading to an additional 5% reduction to the small RHI tariff.

Boiler sizes above 199kW are unaffected by this announcement.

Existing Tariff New tariff (installations accredited on or after 1st Apr 2015)
Small Commercial biomass Tier 1: 5.87p/Kwh Tier 1: 4.4p/Kwh
Tier 2: 1.56p/Kwh Tier 2: 1.17p/Kwh

Domestic RHI Degression

The domestic biomass tariff will be reduced by 20% to 8.93p from 1st July 2015.

This is due to forecast expenditure on biomass (£27.63 million) being above its ‘super trigger’ and ‘super growth trigger’ for the quarter ending 30 April 2015.

Existing Tariff New tariff (installations accredited on or after 1st July 2015)
Biomass Tariff 8.93p/Kwh 7.14p/Kwh
