Step 1. Read the Guidance Document
This provides prospective applicants with a comprehensive insight into the eligibility requirements for the scheme, what is required as part of the accreditation process, as well as information about ongoing obligations under the scheme. Treco have published summaries of the entire Part 1 Guidance, to save you time and to signpost you to key information regarding biomass boilers.
However, you will still need to read the guidance documents in full before making an application;
Step 2. Read the IT User Guide to help you use OFGEM’s system;
Step 3 Create an account on the RHI system
Please follow the instructions on the page to register for an account. You will be sent an email confirming that your account has been created, and a link that you will need to click on to change your password. After this is complete, you will be able to start to complete your application. https://rhi.ofgem.gov.uk/
Step 4; Supply Supporting Information
Before you start to complete the accreditation process, we would advise you to read the “Summary of supporting information for RHI application” document.
Applicants will have to provide a range of information as part of their application, including information specific to your technology and site. The application is quite long – however it is possible to save your application and come back to it later.
Information at application should be accurate to the best of your knowledge. Please see the Fraud and Compliance page for OFGEM’s approach to misconduct under the scheme. http://www.ofgem.gov.uk/e-serve/RHI/fc/Pages/fc.aspx
Step 5; Wait 4-6 weeks for OFGEM’s decision
Once you have completed your application and submitted it, providing there is no other information that is required, OFGEM will aim to make a decision as to whether to accredit your installation to the RHI within 4 weeks for a ‘simple’ installation, and within 6 weeks for a ‘complex’ installation.
They will send you a letter confirming your acceptance onto the scheme if you are successful, which will also detail any conditions associated with your accreditation and the terms and conditions of participation.
