THE RHI AND HOW IT WORKS

You want to reduce your carbon footprint and your energy bills, become more self-sufficient in energy, and earn some extra income. The Renewable Heat Incentive is a new Government-backed measure being introduced in 2011 to make it worth your while to produce renewable heat.

Get paid for the renewable heat you produce

You earn a fixed income for every kilowatt hour of heat you produce. This is likely to be used in your own property, but if you are lucky enough to be connected to a heat network you might be able to get an additional payment for ‘exporting’ surplus heat. For more information on the Renewable Heat Incentive see our Quick Guide or look at the detailed pages listed at the bottom of the page. Renewable electricity has its own similar tariff mechanism, called Feed-In Tariffs.

FAST FACTS ON THE RENEWABLE HEAT INCENTIVE

For the average household using 15,000kWh of heat a year, the Renewable Heat Incentive could provide the following benefits if solar thermal panels and a biomass boiler were installed at the tariffs originally proposed: 13,700kWh of heat generated paying the homeowner £1,400 a year (the kW difference being made up through energy efficiency measures such as insulation) Biomass fuel costs could be as much as £575 per year Therefore the total annual benefit would be £825 per year You can also visit our resident experts at Wood Energy http://www.woodenergy.com/how-we-help/renewable-heat-incentive/
