Grants will be available for renewable heat as interim measure
Posted by Cathy Debenham on 11 March 2011 at 10:57 am
Domestic installations of renewable heat will be eligible for a grant, while we wait for the full renewable heat incentive scheme to be introduced in October 2012.
From July 2011 RHI Premium Payments will be available. These will be a one-off payment to help with installation costs - essentially a grant in all but name. Eligible installations will also get the heat incentive payments from October 2012.
The payment rates are expected to be:
Solar Thermal - £300/unit
Air Source Heat Pumps - £850/unit
Biomass boilers - £950/unit
Ground Source Heat Pumps - £1250/unit
Confirmation of the RHI premium payment rates is expected in May 2011.
