What is it?
The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) is a government financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat. Switching to heating systems that use eligible energy sources can help the UK reduce its carbon emissions and meet its renewable energy targets.
People who join the scheme and stick to its rules receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat it’s estimated their system produces.
Since opening in April 2014, the scheme has already seen thousands of people successfully join and receive payments. You can see what some of these participants have to say about the process by reading our case studies.
Who’s it for?
The scheme is open to anyone who can meet the joining requirements. It’s for households both off and on the gas grid.
What could I earn using RHI?
RHI cash payments are made quarterly over seven years. The amount you receive will depend on a number of factors – including the technology you install, the latest tariffs available for each technology and – in some cases – metering.
What technologies can I claim RHI support for?
- Biomass (wood fuelled) boilers
- Biomass pellet stoves with integrated boilers providing space heating
- Ground to water heat pumps
- Air to water heat pumps
- Solar thermal panels (flat plate or evacuated tube only) providing hot water for your home
The table below summarises the latest tariffs available for each technology:

Here’s what our customers have to say:
The heating system as performed as shown before we decided to place an order, the install team were very friendly and appreciated our tea & coffee supplies! we are now in the process of arranging another order for a second property.
The team of installers were a pleasure to have in my home. They worked very well as a team and both were efficient and courteous. The electrician came on the last ay and was equally as efficient and friendly. I am impressed with the completed installation.
We are very happy with all the installation. The workmen were very helpful and polite and we were not afraid to ask questions. I feel confident that if anything should go wrong in the warranty period, you will put it right.
Really keen to get rid of fossil fuels but was worried at first about the upheaval of installation. The team were very clean and tidy throughout the installation and even brought some electric heaters as I had the system installed in the winter! Now looking back I wondered why I worried, i’m recommending to everyone to get onto the renewable heat incentive scheme!
We were sceptical at first but felt at ease with the lovely people at Aspire Energy Group. We now are benefiting from a tax free income and cheaper heating! Excellent Workmanship, the standard of their knowledge & workmanship is rarely encountered these days.
Very professional from start to finish. Would highly recommend.
