Presumably some of the people in this scheme just wanted to heat their premises and were not taking the piss, no adverse conclusion can be drawn from a modest use of this.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Eight biomass boilers destroyed in Fermanagh shed fire

EIGHT biomass boilers and 14 tonnes of woodchip have been destroyed in a fire at a Co Fermanagh construction firm.

Fire crews from Enniskillen, Irvinestown and Lisnaskea fought the large fire for almost six hours in the early hours of last Friday.

The Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service said on Tuesday that investigations were continuing and it was unable to confirm the cause of the blaze.

A fire service spokesman said it received a call at 2.45am to attend the fire in the Magheradunbar area outside Enniskillen.

“A shed, approximately 20m x 12m, was on fire and contained approximately 14 tonnes of woodchip and eight boilers," he said.

"Firefighters worked to extinguish the fire, however a large quantity of woodchip and the eight boilers were destroyed in the fire. The shed was badly damaged."

“The incident was finished at 8.47am. The cause of the fire is under investigation," the spokesman added.

It is not clear when the eight boilers were installed and whether they had been operating with subsidies from the botched Renewable Heating Incentive scheme.

The PSNI confirmed it received a report from the fire service in relation to the fire, but that there was "no requirement for police to attend".

The fire occurred on premises of Gerald Love Contracts - a family-run business which specialises in projects relating to road surfacing, civil engineering and general construction according to the company website.

The company failed to respond to number of requests for comment both on Monday and Tuesday in relation to the fire

Actually, Sainbury's claim was quite low when calculated on the number of KWtH per day.  It was one of the lowest.  Sainsbury's differed from 97% of the other firms in that it installed single boilers per store with 630, 520, 580, 580, and 520 KWtH boilers in each store.  The way to extract maximum income was to install multiple 99KWtH boilers each with its own hot water feeds and meters.  Hence, almost every other business had these individual boilers.  With the 99 KWtH boiler you can claim up to £1.30 per KWtH per day running them flat out whereas Sainsbury's claim only came to £0.05, £0.06, £0.03, £0.11 and £0.07 per KWtH per day.

It is relevant because an analysis of the data reveals any initial intent to run boilers just for the purpose of the subsidy or to lower costs of a business.  Hence the list shows many poultry farms that are running the boiler for a totally legitimate business.  It also shows businesses that were incorporated just to extract maximum taxpayer funds.  At least Sainsbury's are taking the minimum amount to recoup their investment and they are providing hundreds of jobs across their stores.  Some are just running the boilers to collect funds for the individual and providing no employment or exportable goods.

Do you believe the same about the GAA club and the community centres running the boilers and claiming subsidy, i.e. that they are screwing the taxpayer?

Have a word with yourself.  They are hardly screwing over the tax payer. They are a business taking advantage of a government scheme for exactly the purpose for what it was designed for, unlike a lot of other companies on there.

The terms of the public inquiry into the RHI scheme are now clear.  The way in which the Finance Minister Máirtín Ó Muilleoir set up the inquiry means that it has no time limit and no cost cap.

The lawyers will be paid on the same basis as the Historical Institutional Abuse inquiry.  Senior counsel paid £200 an hour, junior counsel or a solicitor advocate paid £100 an hour, a solicitor (partner) paid £146 an hour, a solicitor (assistant) paid £130 an hour and a paralegal or trainee solicitor paid £65 an hour.

The costs for relevant ministers, SpAd and civil servants will be covered by the Dept of Finance BUT costs may be recovered if the former minister, former SpAd or former official acts against the interests of the Department in the course of the Inquiry hearings.  Is this a gag affecting how they will testify?

It's strange that the heat incentive is renewable but the NI assembly is not.
Last of the choc-ices there now

For most renewable energy in this country, the answer is blowing in the wind my friend.

I see the Queen bigot was among the first to congratulate Leo on being elected Fine Gael leader and Taoiseach elect.  I hope he asked her in what capacity she was calling him.  Can't be as First Minister so can only be as leader of the sectarian-bigot brigade.  Hopefully he told her that her party views should be shoved into one of her RHI boilers!
