Generally no although for biomass heating systems and air / ground source heat pumps there are two situations that will require the systems to be metered:
1/ If a renewable heat system is installed alongside an existing non-renewable system.
2/ For systems installed in second homes.
A “Metering & Monitoring” package is available at a cost of between £200 & £230 per annum. This enables users to monitor the performance of the system.
Yes. A tariff degression scheme will operate to manage the RHI budget, similar to the one employed by the Feed in Tariffs. The number of installations is checked quarterly and when certain trigger points are reached, the tariffs will be lowered in phases. Lowered tariffs will only be applicable to systems installed after that date. In short, the earlier you install a system the more you’re likely to benefit.
The RHI tariffs are paid per kWh of renewable heat generated. The amount of heat generated from your installation estimated based on the expected annual heat used by the property (deemed).
Generally the deemed rate of heat per annum is multiplied by the RHI tariff rate to calculate the annual payment. This is taken over a twenty year period to cover the life expectancy of the system and paid over a seven year period.
The Domestic RHI tariffs are paid over 7 years, although they are calculated to cover a 20 year life expectancy of the system. Payments are made quarterly in arrears by Ofgem. The payments will rise every year according to the retail price index (RPI) which come into effect on April 1st each year.
Your first point of contact should be with the MCS accredited installer of the system/s. If the problem is not resolve you should visit the Renewable Energy Consumer Code (recc.org.uk) site and make a complaint.
