We will be publishing a revised Treco RHI calculator later today, but to illustrate, this represents an increase across following two key kWh ranges that Treco supplies and installs biomass boilers within, 100kW and 198kW:

100kWh

  • Would have expected to gain £10,906 per annum in RHI payments, index linked
  • Will now gain £11,300 or more per annum in RHI payments, index linked – an increase of £394 per annum

198kWth

  • Would have expected to gain £21,594
  • Will now gain £22,375 or more per annum in RHI payments, index linked , an increase of £781 per annum

Treco has had a good response for wood burning boilers to their RHI application assistance package. We also have a full time staff member handling applications, having gained a solid amount of RHI accreditations for our clients.

In total, Treco and our partners have gained accreditations for 48 installations featuring log boilers, wood chip boilers, wood pellet boilers and boilers that will burn on a variety of fuels also including grain and miscanthus. To find out more contact us directly.
