Biomass & RHI Payments

Why Biomass

Biomass Boilers offer a carbon-neutral alternative to traditional electricity or gas heating for your property. Used in the home, this simple but very effective technology can be an incredibly cost-effective solution when compared with traditional fossil fuel boilers. Burning logs or wood pellets, the boilers emit only the same amount of Carbon Dioxide as the plants and trees growing around us.

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is the world’s first long-term financial support programme for incentivising the implementation of renewable heat energy. The RHI pays people that generate and use renewable energy to heat their properties, the mission being to greatly increase the generation of heat from renewable rather than fossil fuels and help the UK reduce greenhouse gas emissions that effect climate change.

The high-grade heat produced by biomass boilers can easily be integrated to work in tandem with heating systems such as radiators. This helps minimise initial costs as the heating distribution system does not typically have to be upgraded.

What payments will I receive?

The government will pay you each year for 20 years the following amounts (with inflationary increases each year on top)

Boiler Size*

999kW 600kW 400kW 199kW 150kW 100kW 80kW 50kW
£66,000 £40,208 £26,805 £23,010 £17,344 £11,563 £9250 £5,781

Over 20 years for a 199kw boiler you could receive over £500,000.00

Mr Harris saved £9,000 on his oil bill and received over £20,000 RHI payment on his 166KW boiler.

Because the UK government considers Biomass to be the most environmentally friendly heating solution, they’ve gone to great lengths to incentivise it, introducing significantly higher tariffs than for other sustainable solutions, like heat pumps. This step has made small to medium-sized biomass boiler systems very financially lucrative, meaning they can pay for themselves quite quickly.

*Figures above based on 1,314 running hours per year and for guidance purposes only. Fuel savings have not been included. Inflation could on average be 2% per annum.

What Payments will I receive?

The most important consideration with Biomass renewable energy is which boiler is correct for you. Broad Oak Renewable Energy are MCS approved installers so we can advise you on this as well as facilitate your access the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments.

Most contemporary biomass boilers not only take logs manually but are also fitted with automatic pellet feeding systems for when you cannot add logs to it. NOTE: How much you can save over traditional boilers will depend on whether you can get free access to wood logs, so if you live out in the country or near woodland (where you have permission to gather logs) you will save more money.
