Public views sought on the tariffs payable on medium-sized boilers under the Renewable Heat Incentive
The Department for the Economy has launched a consultation on the Non-Domestic Renewable Heating Incentive (NDRHI) tariff review.
The Department committed to keeping the tariffs under review when it brought forward the 2019 legislation that implemented reduced tariffs for small and medium-sized biomass boilers accredited to the NDRHI scheme.
An independent energy consultancy was engaged to review the variable elements of the tariff and it has recommended increasing the medium biomass tariffs in order to achieve the appropriate return on investment.
The consultation closes on 26 May 2020.
Any amendment to the tariff will require legislation in the Assembly.
