Installing renewable energy systems in your home such as heat pumps could mean you are eligible for financial support towards the installation costs.
The Renewable Heat Premium Payment is a one-off grant designed to help towards meeting the costs of installing renewable technologies in your home, until the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is introduced for domestic customers. An extension to the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme was announced by the Department of Energy and Climate Change on 26 March 2013. The scheme is being extended until the end of March 2014, ahead of the RHI scheme for householders. This offers one-off grants to householders across England, Scotland and Wales to help with the cost of installing renewable heating technologies such as heat pumps.
This depends on the type of renewable energy systems you are installing. The Renewable Heat Premium Payment scheme – Phase 2 extension will run from 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2014, subject to available funding.
If you currently rely on oil, liquid gas, solid fuel or electricity then you could apply for air-to-water heat pumps, ground-source or water-source heat pumps and biomass boilers.
