100% Better than Biomass? 

Anything up to 200kW, a Heatpump System Is 100% better than the Biomass Equivilent! 

It is seen as a bit of a bold statement given the popularity of biomass over recent years. However this popularity has been short lived with the Government who have reduced the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) tariff for Biomass whilst increasing the RHI tariff for Heatpump systems. 
 
The Biomass RHI tariff has been reduced to 4.4p/kW Vs 8.84p/kW for heatpumps on the commercial, 20 year tariff, up to 200kW. This makes a Heatpump system 100% better than a Biomass system. As of the 1st October 2015 the domestic Biomass RHI tariff will be reduced further to 6.43p/kW Vs the Heatpump RHI tariff which will remain at 19.1p/kW, almost 300% better than Biomass.
