Announcements have been made for future changes to the RHI scheme, domestic & non-domestic. The domestic RHI had a summarised fact sheet (please click on the link below) so was quick to spot the major changes-

  • Significant tariff increases to biomass, ASHP
  • Smaller but still an increase for GSHP
  • ST no change
  • People applying between now and the proposed increase date, will be eligible for the tariff increase when it comes into force
  • Capped annual heat demand, so not all good news (aiming the scheme at average, relatively energy efficient properties. See factsheet for caps).
  • Electricity consumption meters for heat pumps. Same as current non-dom RHI.
  • Consideration given to the option of finance deals to help overcome the high upfront install cost. Allowing third parties to receive the RHI payments. This was not approved.

It would appear the Government is not turning its back on the scheme. The changes to both schemes are subject to Parliamentary approval but are expected to come into force April 2017.
