Households can now get a clear idea of the payments they could receive if they install a renewable heating system, thanks to a new online service that has been launched by the UK Department for Climate and Energy Change.
By tapping a few details about their property into the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) calculator, people can see instantly how much money they may be paid through the scheme, according to what type of renewable heating system they install.
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.
For further details about the scheme including eligibility criteria and how to apply visit the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive section of the Ofgem website.
