Renewable Energy Incentives

The Department of Energy and Climate Change have a number of programmes designed to help people switch to renewable energy.

 

As renewable technology develops new incentives may become available. Likewise, as the uptake of the incentives increases, the amount available to first time applicants reduces. So to get the best return on your investment it’s important to join the programmes as soon as you can.

 

Payments are index-linked and therefore rise with inflation.

 

This page gives a brief overview of the incentives available. For detailed information please call us on 01600 463 008.

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

The RHI is a Government programme to increase the use of renewable heat. It has two schemes - Domestic and Non-Domestic. The two schemes have different application processes, joining requirements, tariffs and rules. We can help you determine which scheme is right for you.

 

The Domestic RHI makes a payment every quarter for seven years for the amount of renewable heat the system produces.

 

The Non-Domestic RHI makes a payment every quarter for twenty years for the amount of usable heat the system produces.

 

Payments are index-linked and guaranteed by the Government.

Feed-in-Tariff (FIT)

The FIT is a Government programme to increase the generation of renewable electricity. The programme requires some suppliers to make payments on the generation and export of renewable electricity.

 

Payments are index-linked and guaranteed by the Government.
