Rob discusses the proposed oil boiler ban set to take effect in 2026 and its potential impact on rural households in the UK. He highlights the concerns raised by homeowners who rely on oil boilers, particularly those living in areas without access to mains gas, and explores a trial taking place in a small hamlet in Cornwall, where residents are using hydrotreated vegetable oil as an alternative to kerosene.
"There's an interesting sample, basically, that's happening down in Cornwall in a tiny hamlet "
"Official figures, whether you want to believe them or not, it's up to you, show that vegetable oil produces 88% fewer carbon emissions than kerosene."
"I hate throwing something away that's working. That boiler could go on for another 5 or 10 years, and it's serviced every year."
"In three years' time, the government is saying, thou shalt not have an oil boiler. Thou shalt only have an air source heat pump."
