Replacement plants

55A.(1) Where a replacement plant is installed—

(a)an accreditation application for that plant may be made by the owner of the replacement plant if that person is a participant in relation to the original plant; and

(b)no periodic support payments are payable for the period commencing with the date on which the original plant ceased to provide heat and ending with the day before the date on which the Authority received the accreditation application for the replacement plant.

(2) Where a replacement plant has a greater capacity than the original plant, no periodic support payments may be made in respect of any capacity above that of the original plant.

(3) The tariff to be used for the purpose of calculating periodic support payments for a replacement plant is the tariff which would have applied to the original plant, had it not been replaced.

(4) Where a replacement plant has a lower capacity than the original plant and regulation 63 applies, initial heat (within the meaning given in regulation 63(3), (4) or (5)) is to be calculated using the installation capacity of the replacement plant.

(5) A replacement plant meets the criteria for being an eligible installation if it meets the eligibility criteria applicable as at the date of accreditation of the original plant except that, in the case of a replacement plant which is an installation generating heat from solid biomass, regulation 5 must apply to the replacement plant itself..
