Kensa has pioneered the development of a new patented system architecture for ground source heat pumps known as D-VA. The District-Vertical Array system features a communal ground array linked to individual ground source heat pumps installed within each dwelling. Ofgem has confirmed that this configuration qualifies as a district heating system.
A district Heating System is eligible for Commercial RHI Tariff Payments.
Configuration possibilities include:
1. Semi detatched property with a communal ground array – two boreholes.
2. Terrace of six houses sharing a communal six borehole field.
3. Terrace of six houses with three separate two borehole fields.
In order to qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive, installations must be performed by a contractor accredited to the Microgeneration Certification Scheme.
To comply with this requirement, clients can choose from three different installation options. Please see the Project Fulfillment page to find out more about these three options.
