The Government has announced that the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is open for applications.
The RHI is a long-term financial support programme for renewable heat, offering homeowners payments to offset the cost of installing low carbon systems in their properties. The scheme is open to everyone – home owners, social and private landlords, and people who build their own homes. The technologies currently covered by the scheme are:
- Biomass heating systems
- Ground or water source heat pumps
- Air to water heat pumps
- Solar thermal panels
Homeowners in England, Scotland and Wales can receive quarterly payments over a seven year period to fund the purchase and installation costs of a renewable heat source.
The scheme is open to anyone who can meet the joining requirements and it’s for households both off and on mains gas supply.

There is also a Non-Domestic RHI which has been running since November 2011 and is open to the non-domestic sector including industrial, commercial, public sector and not-for-profit organisations with eligible installations.
