Why is the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) needed? The incentive was 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. RHI helps home and business owners to pay for new installations with payments over a period of 7 years. In turn, 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 products in their property. From biomass boilers, to solar pv - or any combination to build a renewable home system. See Green Squares product range for full details.
Step Two: Home or business owners measure the amount of heat their renewable energy technology generates. Find our more using the Green Square RHI Calculator.
Step Three: A fixed amount or tariff is paid to property owners based upon the size and type of technology they have installed and how much energy you generate. This is paid every quarter, for 7 years, and often easily covers the installation costs.
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. We recommend talking to one of our renewable energy experts to discuss the best options for you.
