The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) is a UK 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. If you join and comply with the scheme rules, you’ll receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat the system produces.

The tariffs for domestic air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps, and biomass boilers and stoves have been increased from 20th September 2017. Domestic RHI applications submitted on or after 14th December 2016 will be eligible to receive these increased tariffs, but they will only apply to payments made from 20th September 2017.
Heat demand limits were also introduced on 20th September 2017 which limit the amount of RHI payments made to properties with a larger heat demand. Full applications submitted before the new regulations came into force will not be subject to these limits.
