Why is the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) needed?

The incentive was been introduced by the Government to help raise and keep the level of renewable energy in the UK sustainable. A legally binding target of 15% of total energy from renewables by 2020 has now been put in place.

The aim of RHI is to pay for new installations over a period of 7 years. This gives homeowners a more efficient and reliable system for the future.

How does the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) work?

Step One: Home or business owners install their chosen renewable energy technology in their property e.g solar PV or a biomass boiler. Or any combination of these products for best results!

Step Two: Home or business owners measure the amount of heat their renewable energy technology generates.

Step Three: A fixed amount (tariff) is paid to householders based upon the size and type of technology they have installed and its output. This is paid every quarter, for 7 years.

Who is eligible?

Everyone can be eligible for Renewable Heating Incentive, but it is important to get the right fit for you. From households, business owners, schools, hospitals, care homes and even private landlords.
