The Renewable Heat Incentive

New regulations came into effect on 22 May 2018 to help combat climate change

The Renewable Heat Incentive has two schemes – Domestic and Non-Domestic. They have separate tariffs, joining conditions, rules and application processes they are both regulated by Ofgem which standes for the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets who are a non-ministerial government department and an independent National Regulatory Authority.

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a Government scheme set up to help people move to more renewable heat sources in their homes through a financial incentive that pays out over a period of 7 years. The scheme is expected to contribute towards the 2020 goal of 12% of heating coming from renewable sources in the UK.
