Renewable Heat Incentive Rates Table
By Katie Anderson on September 20th, 2011
To support the installation and use of renewable heating technologies through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), anyone installing a renewable heating system will be able to benefit financially through the feed-in tariffs.
Introduced in April 2014, to be eligible specific criteria will need to be met, and the levels of payment will depend on the technology and the size of the system installed.
The tariffs have been designed to pay out a set amount for every kWh of renewable heat produced. The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has confirmed that RHI payments will be made quarterly over seven years.
The tariff rates for residential installations are to be as follows:
|Solar thermal panels (flat plate and evacuated tube)
Ground source heat pumps
Biomass boilers and biomass pellet stoves with a back boiler
Air source heat pumps (air-to-water)
