Renewable Heat Incentive

You can get paid by the Government for installing renewable-source heating!

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a UK Government scheme set up to encourage uptake of renewable heat technologies amongst householders, communities and businesses through financial incentives. It is the first of its kind in the world and the UK Government expects the RHI to contribute towards the 2020 ambition of 12% of heating coming from renewable sources.

To find out more:

The Energy Saving Trust / Home Energy Scotland  provides information about how the scheme works, who is eligible, how much you would get paid for different technologies, and how to apply.  It also tells you how to contact Ofgem if you are unable or do not wish to apply online - information not easily found on the Ofgem website.  (2015)

Ofgem (the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets) provides information and an online form to apply for the scheme.  (2015)

The energy advice organisation  Energyseek  have also produced a  guide to RHI (2019).
