​RENEWABLE HEAT INCENTIVE

What is it?

The domestic RHI scheme is for home-owners and private and social landlords who want to install renewable heating systems in their homes in England, Wales and Scotland.

It will provide long term financial support for property owners who install renewable heating systems. Apply for the domestic RHI and you’ll receive quarterly payments for seven years for eligible heating systems which include:

  • Air source heat pumps
  • Solar thermal panels
  • Ground source heat pumps
  • Biomass boilers


The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) 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.


Who's it for?

The scheme's open to anyone who can meet the joining requirements. It’s for households both off and on the gas grid.

People off mains gas have the most potential to save on fuel bills and reduce carbon emissions.
