Renewable Heat Incentive

Whilst in almost every situation the cost savings of using renewable energy are justification enough the government has launched two schemes to incentivise homeowners and commercial organisations to move to renewable energy.

The government launched the first commercial renewable energy funding scheme in 2011.

This scheme relies on quarterly meter readings and last for up to 20 years.

In April 2014 the government launched a scheme for homeowners called the Domestic renewable heat incentive.

Whilst some installations may require metering most are paid on a deemed energy level which is shown on the Energy performance certificate.

This scheme is again paid quarterly but lasts for 7 years giving homeowners a faster return on their investment.
