Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

The RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) is a UK government backed scheme to incentivise consumers to install renewable technologies including biomass, solar thermal and heat pumps. As it stands, domestic properties who install a renewable energy system before March 2022 are eligible.

In order to claim RHI you must have your installation carried out by an MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) and the products you install must also be MCS registered. Contact us are we are MCS registered, we will be happy to discuss your project and suggest the most suitable equipment for your home

There are 2 schemes available: Domestic and Non-Domestic.

Each scheme has different rules, application processes and tariffs. In the domestic scheme applicants receive quarterly payments for seven years based on the amount of energy their renewable heat system produces. For the non-domestic applicants the tariff rate is lower but payments last for 20 years.
