Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

Greg Barker has announced today, the 9th April, the world’s first financial support programme for renewable heat, offering homeowners cash payments to offset the cost installing low carbon systems in their homes

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is the world’s first long-term financial support for generation of renewable heat. It was introduced to encourage uptake of renewable technologies, whilst lowering the UK's carbon emissions.

The Government's Department of Climate Change (DECC) will now pay for the generation of renewable heat. This has been designed to level the playing field between the cost of renewable and traditional fossil fuel systems.

The more efficient the renewable system, the more money can be claimed. We want to show you how DIS SOLAR can work for you.

Full details of the RHI can be found here

Home owners can now not only reduce their energy costs, but also earn an income, index linked for 7years through the new Renewable heat incentive scheme

The RHI scheme is designed to help and support domestic customers to switch from fossil fuels such as, propane, oil, and mains gas to Renewable energy.

The scheme will work in a similar way to the solar P.V. feed in tariff, but on a much shorter time scale of 7yrs, homeowners will be paid for each Kilowatt of Renewable energy their installation generates.

Tarriff (p/KwRenewable Heat)

ASHP  7.3P

Biomass 12.2

GSHP 18.8

Solar Thermal 19.2

In some cases the amount received over the 7yr period could actually cover the cost of your renewable installation.

The RHI document states that the tariff levels set out above may change as the demand increases, therefore to ensure you receive the maximum tariff contact Warmaway today for a free quotation.
