Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

What is the Domestic RHI?

The RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) is a Government-backed financial support scheme targeted at, but not limited to ‘Off Gas-grid’ households. The scheme will pay owners of Renewable Heating systems a set rate per unit of Renewable Energy produced, for seven years.

What Heating Systems are eligible?

The RHI will support;

  • Air Source Heat Pumps
  • Biomass Boilers
  • Ground Source Heat Pumps
  • Solar Thermal

How much will I get paid?

The current confirmed tariffs are:

Technology Tariff (p/kWh renewable heat)
Air Source Heat Pump 7.3p
Biomass Boiler 10.98p
Ground Source Heat Pump Solar Thermal 18.8p
Solar Thermal 19.2p

These tariffs will be paid for 7 years, provided that certain criteria are met.

Which houses are eligible?

The scheme is predominantly aimed at, but not limited to, the houses that are not connected to the Gas Grid.

The scheme is open to the following groups;

  • Owner-Occupiers
  • Private Landlords
  • Registered providers of Social Housing
  • Self-builders
  • Third-party owners of a heating system

I already have one of the eligible Heating Systems in my house; can I claim for the RHI?

Owners of systems installed on, or before 15th July 2009 will be eligible for the RHI. These are known as ‘Legacy Applicants’. Further information on Legacy Applications will be made available prior to the formal introduction of the RHI.
