Details

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a financial incentive scheme open to anyone to apply for, but those who live off the gas grid are most likely to benefit. If you apply and comply with the scheme rules, you’ll receive quarterly payments for seven years. The size of your payment depends on the size of your property and the type of renewable heating system that you choose to install.

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) will cover certain types of hot water and heating systems, including heat pumps, biomass boilers and solar thermal systems.
