The Government continue to develop and enhance the incentives and grants for renewable technologies, to encourage the further use of proven, efficient systems.
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
As we have mentioned elsewhere this is another Government led incentive that has taken time to formulate - but is designed to again increase the uptake of Renewable technologies and bring the country closer to its 2020 target of having at least 12% of our heating from renewable sources.
This scheme works differently to the Renewable Heat Premium, and aims to provide the home owner with an annual payment as opposed to a one off payment.
The first phase of the Renewable Heat Incentive has been rolled out to the non-domestic, industrial market and the plan is to have a consultation in September 2012, after which the amounts will be clarified, with the final scheme being rolled out in the Summer of 2013.
Renewable heat premium payment
As heat pumps become a more and more recognised alternative for heating and hot water, so the grants available also increase, to aid the uptake of such a green and efficient solution.
These amounts are subject to remaining budget but to date there is still plenty available.
Alongside the government incentives for renewal energy, many of the manufacturers are providing additional incentives to help reduce the cost to the end user. For instance Mitsubishi Electric are offering a further £400 for their Ecodan and Zubadan range. Similar offers are being made by Danfoss and Daikin.
The above amounts are all available through an MCS accredited installer - once correctly sized, designed and installed.
Please also note that the following conditions also apply:
As we are fully MCS accredited for the design and installation of both air source and ground source heat pumps, you will benefit from an £850 grant from the government - and RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) payments as they are introduced.
Please ask about grants and funding, as there are a number of local authority and manufacturer schemes that you may also benefit from.
