Condensing Wood Pellet Boilers approved for Domestic RHI

Grant UK welcomes The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) decision to include the Grant Spira range of Condensing Wood Pellet Biomass Boilers in the ‘Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme’ (RHI) due to launch in Spring 2014.

Grant Engineering, from the outset, took a proactive approach to the issues raised requiring clarification, whilst maintaining the position that the products met all conditions in full at the time of testing and were accepted onto the approved MCS product database.

This is an exciting and ground breaking step forward in legislation and has only been possible with a great deal of due diligence from Grant and swift resolution and communication from the government body, DECC.
