DOMESTIC RHI SCHEME
Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive
The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) is a government financial scheme that makes payments to individuals for reducing their domestic carbon footprint through the use of renewable energies installed inline with MCS certified standards.
The scheme applies only to single, domestic properties. The property must have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) in order to qualify (this is also required every time you buy, sell or rent a property)
The scheme's open to households both off and on the gas grid.
These are set by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and dictate the rate for your Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments. Payments are received quarterly, over seven years. Terms & conditions apply.
NON-DOMESTIC RHI SCHEME
Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive
The Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government environmental programme that provides financial incentives to increase the uptake of renewable heat by businesses, the public sector and non-profit organisations.
Eligible installations receive quarterly payments over 20 years based on the amount of heat generated. The scheme covers England, Scotland, and Wales.
Businesses, public sector and non-profit organisations can apply if equipment was installed in England, Scotland or Wales on or after 15 July 2009 (or later in some cases). Your installation must meet certain requirements.
GREEN HOMES GRANT SCHEME
Cover up to 2/3 of installation costs
The Green Homes Grant is a new £2bn government grant available through March 2022. The grant offers to cover up to two thirds of installation costs for energy efficient updates to your home.
The grant is available to most homeowners and landlords in England and offers up to £5,000 discount on installation costs in the form of a voucher.
For low income families that may have difficulty opting for green energy upgrades, that amount is raised to a maximum of £10,000, meaning there is no out of pocket cost to the homeowner. The Green Homes Grant covers the addition of energy efficient heat pumps, insulation, double/triple glazing, and more.
