What Is The Renewable Heat Incentive?

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a Government incentive that was launched in April 2014 devised to encourage the uptake of renewable heat technologies amongst properties via financial incentives. By giving incentives to homeowners to switch to renewable heat, the Government can help combat carbon emissions in the UK, in which they aim to reduce by 80% by 2050 (GOV.UK)

Anybody could be eligible for RHI, including houses both on and off the gas grid, however homes off the gas grid would be more benefitted by the scheme.

How Does It Work?

The Government will provide financial support to the owner of a renewable heating system quarterly for seven years. The amount will depend on a number of factors- including the technology installed, the latest tariffs available for each technology and – in some cases- metering, but the payments could be anything up to £3456 a year.

How Much Could I Earn?

How To Apply For RHI

To apply for The Renewable Heat Incentive you will need to obtain a Green Deal Assessment (in which our trained team of surveyors can carry out on your home) as proof to apply for the scheme. This assessment will thoroughly examine the energy efficiency within your home and will allow you to calculate how much a specific renewable technology would cost you, how much you could save and what payments you may be eligible for. If you are a social landlord then a GDA is not always necessary, however an EPC assessment (Energy Performance Certificate) will have to be carried out on your property first. We will then give you a Green Deal Assessment Report and an EPC (which should also come with the Green Deal Assessment) and arrange for an installer to install the relevant measures. Upon installation, you will then be provided with an MCS certification number in which you can then fill in an RHI application online via the OFGEM Website. This application is free, and you will be required to submit information from your Green Deal Assessment, EPC and MCS certificate.
