DECC launch RHI calculator

A new online service will allow households to calculate the payments they could receive if they install a renewable heating system.

By inputting details about their property into the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) calculator, people can see how much money they may be paid through the scheme, according to what type of renewable heating system they install.

Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Climate Change, Amber Rudd MP said: “Renewable technology is helping thousands of people keep their homes warm and reduce their energy bills at the same time, not to mention reducing their carbon footprint.

“The Domestic RHI helps households offset the cost of installing renewable heating systems. From today, by entering just a few simple details into this calculator, people can now instantly see how much they could be paid through the scheme.”

The domestic RHI offers incentive payments to homeowners to offset the cost of installing low carbon technologies (such as biomass boilers, heat pumps and solar thermal systems).

The scheme is open to home owners, social and private landlords, and people who build their own homes. It is available to households both on and off the gas grid. To date there have been 4,448 applications since the scheme launched in April 2014.
