The deadline for Renewable Heat Premium Payment voucher scheme is approaching on 31 March 2014.
The scheme aims to help households without access to main gas grid with the cost of renewable heating installations such as heat pumps, biomass boilers and solar thermal.
This funding is a great opportunity to replace the old inefficient heating systems with renewable heating technologies, and cut the energy bills and carbon emissions.
RHPP, run by the UK government, offers vouchers to householders across England, Scotland and Wales. The amount received as a part of RHPP depends on the technology installed.
If you qualify, you will get:
- £1,300 off an air-to-water heat pump system,
- £2,000 off a biomass boiler system,
- £2,300 off a ground source or water source heat pump system.
Additionally, a grant of £600 is offered towards the cost of solar thermal systems for all households including on-grid properties.
The 12 February issue of H&V News will be releasing a Q&A with the DECC on the Renewable Heat Incentive and how it will affect the RHPP.
