SAC Consulting Event in Thurso: Get Paid for Keeping Warm with the Renewable Heat Incentive

Published Wednesday, 14th November 2012 in SAC Consulting news

As the weather grows colder, the Thurso office of SAC Consulting will be delivering some warming advice about a new Government scheme that could pay you for heating your home or business.

SAC Consultant Kate Hutchinson will be hosting a free event on 17th December to shed light on the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and the benefits of woodfuel heating.

Kate will explain how the RHI works, and particularly highlight the changes that are coming in in the near future. She will also offer a wealth of additional information on the world of woodfuel. Kate will draw on some real life case studies of woodfuel installations and demonstrate the fuel bill savings and income from the RHI that can be achieved with a woodfuel boiler. 

The event is open anyone who is interested in cutting their heating bill and generating a new source of income. It will be of particular interest to farmers, estates, businesses and owners of large rural homes.

Biomass Energy Consultant Kate said: “The aim of the RHI is to encourage the installation of renewable heat technologies. The Government will give you a payment for every kilowatt hour of renewable heat that you produce to heat your home or business – for up to 20 years!

“To gain the maximum benefits from woodfuel and the RHI, it is essential to have the right system for your situation. SAC Consulting is independent so we will be offering completely impartial advice to help people ensure that any investment they may carry out is the best option for their home or business.”

This event is funded by the Scottish Government as part of their Farming for a Better Climate initiative. The project aims identify low or no cost measures that will reduce farms’ green house gas emissions without affecting their bottom line.

The RHI event takes place at the Pentland Hotel, Thurso from 7.30pm on Monday 17th December. For more information, please contact SAC Consulting office in Thurso on 01847 892602.
