Are you ready for the Renewable Heat Incentive?

The Renewable Heat Incentive is a world first and it’s set to revolutionise the way we heat our buildings in the UK. £860m is to be invested in renewable heat installations, starting with industrial, commercial and public sector buildings this summer, followed by domestic properties from October 2012.The RHI is different from previous grants in that it will pay a tariff for 20 years based on the kWh of heat produced. The payments are guaranteed and adjusted annually in line with inflation.
