I believe we cannot get the RHI as the TS provides both DHW and heating.  G

If memory serves me right, I think what you are thinking of relates to solar thermal panels which are for DHW only.  A GSHP or ASHP are for both DHW and Heating so a thermal store should be fine but maybe not the most efficient way of doing things.

You may well be right, I certainly remember it was not worth us putting Solar thermal up even though we put the fitting on the TS for ST.

It might well be that the quotes for 14K assumed RHI which may be why they are so over the top.

Reference grants / subsidies....
When built in 2007 I got a payment towards each 1500 for solar water, 3k for GSHP and 8k for the turbine
However the flaw with this was that the installers just upped their price...
Subsequently I found that on the mainland you could get a turbine up for 12k mine charged 20k.
I do get Rocs and generation payments....
RHI was suspended in N Ireland principly because our politicians are idiots
