Domestic RHI

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive commenced on 9th April 2014

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) is a Government financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat.  It is designed to drive forward uptake of renewable heat technologies in homes across Great Britain to cut carbon, help meet renewable targets and save money on bills.

People who join the scheme and stick to its rules, receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat their system produces.

Who is it for?

The Domestic RHI is open to anyone who can meet the joining requirements. It is for households both off and on the gas grid.

People off mains gas have the most potential to save on fuel bills and reduce carbon emissions.


What is the tariff rate?

The tariff rate is set at £0.0385 per kW/h for biomass boilers (1st July 2017 onwards).

You’ll receive payment for seven years based on the amount of clean, green renewable heat you make at your domestic property.

Tariffs will be paid to the owner of eligible domestic biomass installations that has been commissioned after 15th July 2009.
