Take advantage of guaranteed payments

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) was introduced by the Government to encourage the uptake of renewable heat technologies among householders, businesses and communities through financial incentives.
The Government expects the RHI to make a significant contribution towards their 2020 ambition of having 12 per cent of heating coming from renewable sources.
There are two types of RHI scheme that you can take advantage depending on what type of use the building with the installed system has.

Domestic RHI

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) is a government financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat. Switching to heating systems that use eligible energy sources can help the UK reduce its carbon emissions and meet its renewable energy targets.

People who join the scheme and stick to its rules receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat it’s estimated their system produces.

Since opening in April 2014, the scheme has already seen thousands of people successfully join and receive payments.

The domestic RHI scheme was launched on 9th April 2014 and provides financial support to the owner of the renewable heating system for seven years.

Non-domestic RHI

Specifically for businesses, RHI provides financial incentives to eligible, non-domestic renewable heat generators and producers of biomethane, for the life of the installations or up to a maximum of 20 years.

Non-domestic sectors include industrial, commercial, public and non-for-profit sectors. A non-domestic installation might be a large-scale industrial heating systems or a smaller community heating project.
