 Can anyone tell me what the cut off date is for last applications? What is the cut off date for commissioning? I have searched all weekend!

Hi Mishoo
The RHI for domestic premises has not started yet. This summer maybe. The voucher scheme for RHPP ends 31 March 2013. Go to
www.gov.uk/renewable-heat-premium-payment-scheme for info. Commercial scheme is ongoing.

Expect domestic RHI proper from September (summer but only just).

You need to redeem any RHPP voucher by 31st March. But funding for this could run out at any time in which case no more vouchers would be issued - so apply for your voucher now.

I am self employed farming. The house is used in the business and there's a farm office in the house. Does this then qualify for the rhi payment of 8.1p a kilowatt hour used as a commercial setup? The boiler will be heating the office and the rest of the house. Is it correct that one has to first install the new boiler and system before registering and getting an application off in the post? I would have thought i would have to register and apply first and then go from there. Is there anyone who can answer this?

Do you pay Business Rates on the part of the house used as an office? If not then it will not be classed as non-domestic for the purposes of RHI.

See Chapters 3 and 4 in this document: http://www.ofgem.gov.uk/e-serve/RHI/howtoapply/Documents1/RHI_Guidance_Document_Vol_One.pdf
and specifically 4.40 onwards for detailed guidance on the eligibility criteria.

It might be possible to turn your new system in to a 'district heating system' which could be eligible if you pay separate Council Tax bills for separate buildings on the farm and use a single boiler to heat them all.

Is there any chance that RHPP will be extended beyond 31March, or is this an absolute deadline?

So can one claim rhpp and then go on to claim rhi on the same scheme? I think I've read somewhere you can't claim rhi payments if you've also received a government grant. Is it correct that i have to get the boiler installed before i can apply/register for RHI? The whole thing ha given jobs for the boys alright.

hello,

Is it correct that i have to get the boiler installed before i can apply/register for RHI? The whole thing ha given jobs for the boys alright.

you probaly will be able to claim RHI but it will be reduced by RHPP amount,

read this document - www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/66155/RHI_domestic_scheme_-_consultation.pdf - particularly paragraphs 65-69
