Is there a Feed in Tariff for solar heating?

Our Answer

The Renewable Heat Incentive(RHI)is a way of paying installers of Microgenerating equipment for the amount of heat energy they generate.

Commencing in April 2011, the RHI will guarantee long-term payments for installers of solar thermal, ground source heat pumps, biomass boilers and other renewable technologies. It will apply to heating at all scales, from households to public sector buildings to industrial processes in factories.
Once a successful application is made payments are made by your utility supplier direct to your bank.
