Renewable Heat Incentive RHI
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) has now ended and been replaced by the Boiler Upgrade Scheme
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme is on a first-come-first-served basis - so it makes sense to line up some quotes ready for when it launches. You can phone us on 01803 712721 and we will get the ball rolling.
The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government grant that supports homes to move away from oil or gas to a low CO2 form of heating like a heat pump or wood pellet boiler.
The RHI ends on 31st March and has been replaced by the Boiler Upgrade Scheme.
RHI in more detail.
The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (known as the Domestic RHI) pays a grant to householders who heat their house and hot water using renewable technologies like heat pumps, solar panels, wood pellet stoves with back boilers. The idea is that this will help reduce our carbon emissions, lower our heating bills and help the government reach their renewable targets.
For biomass boilers like wood pellet and log gasification they plan to pay a tariff amount for every kWh produced over a seven year period. The appliance must be accredited under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) and fitted by an MCS accredited installer.
The scheme is open to home owners, private and social landlords and people who build their own homes. There is no longer a requirement to complete a Green Deal assessment but you will still need to have a Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) within the last 2 years of applying.
We reserve the right to alter information on government grants without prior notice and always stress to potential customers that they should make their decision to go for a renewable energy source based on the savings that are achievable through the cheaper cost of the fuel and treat any grants as a bonus.
