The Renewable Heat Premium Payments scheme is for domestic installations of solar thermal, biomass boilers, and heat pumps. The Premium Payments scheme is coming from a limited pot of money so it is first come first served. From the 1st August house owners can apply for vouchers - our advice - get your application in fast. You must own the house and it must have a minimum level of roof insulation, cavity wall insulation (where practical), and (not counting solar thermal) be off the gas grid. The Premium Payments take the form of vouchers which have a short validity period during which time the installations must be completed.
