As an advanced conversion technology (ACT), this project qualifies for a Contract For Difference (CFD) with a strike price of £119.89 (2014 price). This subsidy will be grandfathered for 15 years ensuring long-term renewable energy production and recycling.
The site is conveniently located adjacent to a suitable 132 kV sub-station. The connection has been sized to provide a capacity of 25 MW export from the site. The grid connection will enable the sale of electricity to major energy consumers or electricity suppliers for distribution to homes and businesses.
The facility has been designed to be CHP
ready, with a provision to retrofit equipment to allow heat offtake at a later date. Designing the plant with tomorrow’s energy requirements in mind has ensured future heat demand in the area may be satisfied with a green energy solution.
