    What is Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

    RHI is a Government backed scheme which was introduced on the 9th April this year to increase the level of renewable energy in the UK.

    With the ever increasing energy bills we see each year people are considering alternative ways and methods to save money and are choosing many energy efficient heat systems.

     

    So how does it work?

    You need to chose an approved system such as the following:

    Biomass boilers

    Solar heat pumps

    Ground source heat pumps

    Air source heat pumps

    As a homeowner you will be guaranteed to receive a fixed price for each kilowatt hour (kWH) of heat generated by that household. The tariffs are index free and even better they are income tax free which makes it very attractive to households.

    The RHI aims to gradually offset installation costs over 7 years with tariff payments. With 99% of all the heat we generate coming from oil, gas and electricity and only 1% from renewable energy the government want to increase this to 12% by 2020.

    Am I eligible?

    Homeowners will need to obtain an energy performance certificate which cost approx. £150 through Green Deal which will estimate the energy efficiency of the property – applications will need to be processed through Ofgem website.

    To find out more about RHI have a look at the pre application steps and good luck!
