Over 1000 systems approved for Domestic Renewal Heat Incentive

Over 1000 systems have been approved in the first two months of the Domestic Renewal Heat Incentive (RHI) – a long term UK government financial support scheme for home-owners, social and private landlords to install renewable heating systems in their homes in England, Wales and Scotland.

There are four eligible renewable heating system types. These are:

  • biomass only boilers, and biomass pellet stoves
  • air source heat pumps
  • ground source heat pumps
  • flat plate and evacuated tube solar thermal panels.

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government financial incentive to encourage a switch to renewable heating systems.

If you join and comply with the scheme rules, you’ll receive quarterly payments
for seven years. It’s a way to help the UK reduce its carbon emissions.
The scheme is available for households both off and on the
gas grid.

Those without mains gas have the most potential to save on fuel bills and decrease carbon emissions.

A Green Deal Assessment is required in order to register for the scheme.

Current tariff rates are:
