The Domestic Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI)
Going strong since 2014, this government funded incentive brings the UK closer and closer to a renewable future and achieving carbon-reduction targets, by promoting the use of renewable heating.
What is it? Who's eligible?
If you choose to install BIOMASS or a HEAT PUMP (solar is also an option), then you can receive seven years’ worth of quarterly payments based on the estimated heat output from your renewable heating system. If you meet the joining requirements, then you’re eligible! Simple right? It is available to those on and off the gas grid.
Why's it so great?
Not only are the Government paying for your central heating, but you’re also becoming an eco-warrior! You can hold your head high knowing that you’ve made a future-proof choice by reducing your carbon footprint from the day your renewable heating system is installed. The planet will thank you and good karma is coming your way (probably in the form of all those quarterly payments)!
Firstly, gas prices are rising and although the outlay on a renewable heating system is relatively high, and interest free loan (Scotland only) and guaranteed quarterly payments from the RHI scheme mean that costs are nearly all covered when you make the switch. Secondly, it’s a fantastic way to reduce your carbon footprint by not relying on the grid and finite fossil fuels! Think of it as saving the planet, one radiator at a time…
