The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive is due to be launched on the 1st April this year. Those considering applying for the RHI should do so sooner rather than later. It is expected that there will be a high number of applicants. If there is a high number of applicants the tariff could be reduced in further rounds. Those who apply soonest will benefit the most from a higher tariff.
Biomass boilers, ground-source and air-source heat pumps are eligible as well as solar thermal heat pumps. Projects already installed could also be eligible as long as they were installed after 15th July 2009. For further advice contact Andrew Dickins in our Bedale office.
