RHPP Reminder: Help your customers cut the cost of their renewable heat…
Last chance for householders who want to make the most of the Government’s one-off grant designed to help meet the costs of installing renewable technologies in homes across the country.
The Renewable Heat Premium Payment Scheme will close on March 31st 2014 and householders are encouraged to apply now before it’s too late. Grants of up to £2,300 are available for householders to help pay for new renewable heating systems.
Vouchers will be valid until 31 March 2014 when all required paperwork will need to be submitted for payment to the Energy Saving Trust. No extensions will be available to this deadline.
A leaflet has now been developed to explain the benefit of applying in customer friendly language and where to go for more information. Download some today and share with your customers.
RHI Products Reminder
The MCS Helpdesk has been receiving an increasing number of phone calls regarding what products will be eligible for the RHI and whether all MCS products do qualify. Please be aware that not all MCS certified products will be eligible for the domestic RHI and that additional criteria will be applied. A full list of RHI eligible products will be released prior to the launch of the RHI. At this time we are unsure where this list will be published.
