Renewable Heat Incentive
We all want to stop wasting energy – and want to find the cheapest ways of keeping our houses warm.
But what if you could do both – and also make money for generating your own energy.
Investing in renewable energy measures can help you achieve all these goals.
Give us a call and discover how you can benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI),The RHI pays participants that generate and use renewable energy to heat their buildings.
By increasing the generation of heat from renewable energy sources (instead of fossil fuels), the RHI helps the UK reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet targets for reducing the effects of climate change.
In other words, it allows you to reduce your carbon emissions while you recover the cost of installing your renewable technology – and you can generate an additional profit on top.
The RHI wants to encourage uptake of renewable heat technologies among householders, communities and businesses by offering very attractive financial incentives. The scheme is targeted at – but not limited to – off-gas properties. Those without mains gas have the most potential to save on fuel bills and decrease carbon emissions.
The UK Government expects the RHI to make a significant contribution towards their 2020 ambition of having 12 per cent of heating coming from renewable sources.
The RHI is the first of its kind in the world. In 2012, phase one of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) was introduced in order to support the UK’s non-domestic sector. The scheme’s domestic counterpart, the domestic RHI, was launched on 9th April 2014.
The scheme will cover single domestic dwellings and will be open to homeowners, private landlords, social landlords and self-builders. It will not be open to new build properties other than self-build.
It works by paying an agreed tariff payment per unit of energy generated for seven years.
The types of renewable heating systems that are eligible for RHI funding are:
Biomass Only Boilers
Your heating and hot water can be provided by a sophisticated, technical update on a wood burning stove. Domestic or commercial biomass boilers typically burn log wood, woodchip or wood pellets made from compressed sawdust.
Biomass Pellet Stoves
Similar to Biomass Only Boilers, these stoves range in size from small room heaters to larger units incorporating a boiler able to supply heat to a few radiators or to domestic hot water systems.
Air Source Heat Pumps
Air source heat pumps absorb heat from outside air which can then be used to heat radiators, under floor heating systems, or warm air convectors and hot water in your home. Air source pumps can provide heat even when the air absorbed is as cold as -15 degrees centigrade, and the heat they extract from the air is constantly being renewed.
Ground Source Heat Pumps
Ground source heat pumps extract heat from the ground through pipes buried in your garden, which can then be used to heat radiators, under floor or warm air heating systems and hot water in your home. The ground stays at a fairly constant temperature under its surface, so the heat pump can be used throughout the year and the heat is constantly replenished naturally.
Solar Thermal Water Heating Systems
Heat water for your home using energy from the sun. A sustainable, free and environmentally friendly energy solution for your home. Solar water heating systems use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. A conventional boiler or immersion heater can be used to make the water hotter or to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable.
So, do you want to be paid to heat your home with a more efficient heating system which will also reduce your running costs?
