The Renewable Heat Incentive is a UK Government scheme designed to financially reward those who use renewable energy to heat their home.  There are two versions of RHI: domestic, and non-domestic. They have separate tariffs, joining conditions, rules and application processes. You can only apply to one of the schemes and at Pure Green Energy we can advise which one is right for you. 

Systems that are eligible for the RHI are:

  • Air source heat pumps

  • Ground source heat pumps

  • Solar thermal panels 

  • Biomass boilers.

Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme

Under the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme, you could receive quarterly cash payments over seven years if you install or have already installed an eligible renewable heating technology. The incentive hopes to encourage more homeowners to embrace green technology. The scheme is open to anyone who can meet the joining requirements. It’s for households both off and on the gas grid. The payment amount is dependent on which green technologies you install and the latest tariffs.

Non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme

The non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) helps businesses, public sector and non-profit organisations meet the cost of installing renewable heat technologies. Payments are made over 20 years and are based on the heat output of your system. You can apply if your equipment was installed in England, Scotland or Wales on or after 15 July 2009 and meets certain requirements
