Fall in RHI business uptake
There has been a decrease in the uptake of the government scheme which provides support for low carbon heating technologies, reports Energy Live News.
DECC published the quarterly figures for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) yesterday, which shows a 39% fall in business applications compared to the fourth quarter of 2014.
It states: “This decrease was largely due to a lower number of applications being received for small biomass boilers in March than three months earlier in December, likely due to the lower small biomass tariff on offer.”
A total of 1,568 businesses joined the scheme during the first quarter of this year.
