The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive scheme (RHI)

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive scheme also known as RHI was launched on 9th April 2014 and new regulations came into effect on 1st April 2021. It is a government financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat. Switching to heating systems that use naturally replenished energy can help the UK reduce its carbon emissions.

People who join the scheme and stick to its rules, receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat their system produces.

The scheme is available to homeowners and registered social and private landlords.

There are four eligible heating types:

Biomass boilers

Air source heat pumps

Ground source heat pumps

Flat plate and evacuated tube solar panels
