    Re: RHI

    Took me just over 2 month to get through. I would say make sure you read the guidance well. The RHI helpline is also pretty good also

    Is that to get accredited or receive first payment?

    Been paid for just under a year now. No major issues or waiting times - as has been said the RHI helpline is pretty good and there are real people on the end of e-mail queries.

    Re: RHI

    In todays farmers weekly, rhi payments to be cut, stricter controls on emmissions, and new decc lists of approved woodfuel suppliers.
    Simpler and fewer meters, and tariff reveiws this autumn on the cards?
    Installation below 1mwth and using their own land for fuel ok to carry on under these new rules?
    Anyone applying worth getting it done asap?

    Was talking to a wood fuel systems designer/installer/supplier today.Didn't mention anything about retrospective changes as in having to use approved fuel suppliers if you are up and running under current conditions.Did say changes will happen,wasn't sure what but suspected more hoops to jump through when changes are implemented in 18 months time.

    Not when I need to become an approved supplier and nobody can tell me what I need to do for approved supplier status for woodchip supply.

    Dragon D20, rated at 185 kW but don't take too much notice of the ratings, it's the fuel you put in that counts. Our accumulator tank is 17000l & it easily heats 4 houses, or maybe I should say it cooks 4 houses LOL

    Do you mean % of RHI Applicants?
    If you go on Ofgem rhi website there is a pie chart think for this?
    Only thing if tied to one fuel source type, ant you over a barrel when prices rise?

    Re: RHI

    Maybe tied to pellet price but thats tied to wood chip price anyway, pellet boilers can burn straw and miscanthus pellets even cereals all be it at a lower output. pellets burn cleanly with minimal amounts of ash and flue problems.
    I decided on pellets due to the simplicity of using a feed bin and auger,also they are more likely to feed in automatically than chips. Im very close to a pellet supplier too so the choice was easy.
    It looks like straw burning maybe more tricky with the new rhi emission rules coming, these rules will probably be backdated to cover all boilers on the rhi not just the new ones

    Re: RHI

    So if accredited, maybe un accredited until things rectified on emmissions is it?
    Straw whatever moisture will produce smoke but the argument is no more emmissions than taken out in the plants growing cycle, so neutral?
