Using heat from the onsite CHP unit to dry their digestate allows our customer to receive quarterly RHi payments for 20 years.
The onsite CHP unit produces electricity which is upgraded with a trasformer before being fed in to the National Grid. This means, as part of the FIt scheme, that our customers will receive controlled payments from an energy provider for as long as they are able to feed electricity in to the grid.
