About the Renewable heat Incentive (RHI)
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a UK Government scheme set up to encourage uptake of renewable heat technologies amongst householders, communities and businesses through financial incentives. It is the first of its kind in the world and the UK Government expects the RHI to contribute towards the 2020 ambition of 12% of heating coming from renewable sources.
The domestic RHI was launched on 9th April 2014 and provides financial support to the owner of the renewable heating system for seven years. The scheme covers England, Wales and Scotland and is targeted at – but not limited to – off-gas households.
By engaging Orme Energy to help install your low carbon air source heat pump, we are able to use our innovative funding model to receive the 99% of the RHI payment in return for covering the cost of the installation. This means you do not have to have savings or need finance to pay for the new air source heat pump.
