RHI reaps 7m for Mid-Ulster firms

Wednesday, 22 March 2017

ALMOST 7 million has been claimed by businesses across Mid-Ulster under the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme.


The figures, released by the Department for the Economy, include the names of all limited companies and limited liability partnerships that have received support payments under the scheme above a threshold of 5,000, for the period from the opening of the scheme in 2012 to 28th February, 2017.


Across this timeframe, 91 companies based in Mid-Ulster had 198 boilers installed.
The scheme has come under much criticism as, unlike a similar scheme in England, there was no cap on the payments.


This meant many businesses were able to profit from the scheme.
Caps were eventually introduced to the scheme in November 2015, before it was closed to new applicants in February 2016.


The Dungannon area contains the claimant who has received the largest amount of money through the scheme.


Paul Hobson Ltd has received just under 660,000 from 13 wood pellet heating systems.
Mr Hobson is one of the biggest poultry farmers supplying Moy Park and is based on the Mullybrannon Road.


He says his site is one of the few audited by Ofgem, that inspection taking place in November 2015, and was given a clean bill of health.


Mr Hobson confirmed he has made only 80,000 in profit on the scheme, having spent 426,000 on wood pellets, 75,000 on electricity to run the system, 12,000 on boiler servicing, 10,000 on parts and 57,000 on interest payments for the loans which financed the investment.


He said: "I do realise it was open to abuse in this country because of the way it was set up - it should have been tiered, the way it is in England. I would have had no problem with that."
The local claimants of the scheme are listed below. There is no suggestion any of the companies listed have committed any wrongdoing by signing up to this government funded scheme.
