Renewable Heat Initiative - Grants & Solutions

There are many benefits to switching to a renewable heating source, including financial benefits. Due to the UK government needing to meet their 2020 renewable energy goals, there are a number of grants and incentives available to those looking to purchase a renewable energy system.

The Renewable Heat Incentive is a government-funded initiative designed to encourage the use of renewable energy in both domestic and commercial properties.

There are two parts to the Renewable Heating Incentive:

  • Domestic (homeowners, private landlords, social landlords and self-builders)
  • Non-domestic (industry, businesses and public sector organisations)

The initiative works by making payments on a quarterly basis for each kilowatt-hour of renewable heat generated from a renewable heat source.

The Domestic Renewable Heating Incentive will pay the following tariffs per unit of heat generated for 7 years:

Technology Tariff (per kilowatt-hour)
Air Source Heat Pumps 7.3p
Biomass  12.2p
Solar Thermal 19.2

To obtain more detailed information about the above initiative, please contact us.
