Domestic RHI Coming Soon

The domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is expected to launch imminently which means home owners will get paid a regular income for the heat they produce in their homes.

The domestic RHI is a government financial incentive to encourage a switch to renewable heating systems. If you join and comply with the scheme rules, you’ll receive quarterly payments for seven years. It’s a way to help the UK reduce its carbon emissions.

It follows on from the success of the non-domestic scheme that commenced in 2011 which provides payments to industry, businesses and public sector organisations.

The renewable technologies that will benefit from the domestic RHI are as follows:

  1. Biomass Boilers
  2. Heat Pumps (ground and air source)
  3. Solar Thermal

The scheme is available for households that are both on and off the national grid (natural gas supply). Those without mains gas have the most potential to save on fuel bills and to decrease their carbon emissions.

Depending on meeting the eligibility criteria, anyone can apply. That includes people who own the homes they live in, people who don’t own the property but do own the renewable heating system, private and registered social landlords and self-builders.

Please note that new-build homes will not be eligible for the domestic RHI, although self-built ones will.
