The RHI which covers Biomass, Solar Thermal, Ground/Air Source Heat Pumps now has a fixed date and rates to boost consumer uptake. The scheme will be in place Spring 2014. Currently the government offers RHPP grants to customers awaiting this RHI update, currently offering grants (£2,300 for ground source heat pumps, £2,000 for biomass boilers, £1,300 for air source heat pumps and £600 for solar thermal systems) which together offer a great deal.
Greg Barker the Head of the DECC has stated –
“I am pleased to announce today the publication of DECC’s policy document ‘Renewable Heat Incentive: the first step to transforming the way we heat our homes’. This meets the Government commitment, as set out in my statement to the House on 26 March, to publish the framework for providing longer term financial support to households for the installation of renewable heating technologies in summer 2013. We remain committed to opening the scheme for applications in spring 2014. This marks a major milestone in achieving our renewable heat goals; it builds on the successes of the Renewable Heat Premium Payment which has seen more than £20m spent on the installation of 16,000 plus domestic renewable heat systems over the last two years.”
