Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

What is it?

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.

Who’s it for?

The scheme is open to anyone who can meet the joining requirements. It’s for households both off and on the gas grid.

Which renewable technologies are eligible?

There are three eligible renewable technology types. These are:

  1. air source heat pumps
  2. ground source heat pumps
  3. flat plate and evacuated tube solar thermal panels.

Current Tariff: 01/01/2020 – 30/06/2020
