The Renewable Heat Incentive is a government backed scheme designed to encourage the uptake of renewable heat technologies through the provision of financial incentives. These incentives are designed to cover the cost of the installation.
RHI enables owners of eligible biomass systems to claim cash back on every unit (kWh) of heat they use.
There are two types of incentive available:
The domestic tariff pays back over a period of seven years, at a higher tariff. The domestic tariff allows owners of single dwellings to claim RHI and is calculated through a Green Deal Assessment, which estimates the kW required to heat the property over a year. We can arrange for a Green Deal Assessment to be carried out at your property following an initial survey of the property.
The non-domestic tariff pays back quarterly, over 20 years on a meter based system and is aimed at industrial, commercial, public sector, district heating systems and community organisations.
