Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive payments being introduced

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme is the world’s first long-term financial support programme for renewable heat. The scheme is for householders looking to replace their current heating system with a supported renewable heat technology and for householders who have installed a renewable heat technology since 15 July 2009.

Renewable Heat Premium Payment voucher value has been increased!

The money off vouchers available under the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme have been increased to £2,300 for ground source heat pumps, £2,000 for biomass boilers, £1,300 for air source heat pumps and £600 for solar thermal systems. The RHPP scheme, first launched in July 2011, is designed to encourage householders to switch to renewable heat from traditional heating systems by offering money off the cost of the equipment. The scheme is targeted at those living off the gas grid, where most money on bills and carbon can be saved.
