ENER-G Switch2 has launched a free Quick Guide to the Renewable Heat Incentive.
The ENER-G guide outlines the three steps towards the RHI, including system installation, measurement of the generated renewable heat and claiming the incentive.
It details the preparations energy providers must make to ensure accurate measurement of renewable energy generation – both for simple and complex installations.
Communal heating and district energy schemes generating heat and hot water from heat pumps, solar thermal, biomass and bio-methane can be paid up to 8.5p/kWh under phase two of the RHI, which is expected to be introduced late 2012.
Jayne Clare, managing director of ENER-G Switch2, said: “According to the government, which has set tariff levels, users will earn a return of 12 per cent per annum, but initial industry estimates are more conservative at 6-9 per cent.
“Nevertheless, this could provide a return on investment within five to 10 years.”
ENER-G Switch2 division has partnered with the social housing sector for the past four decades to deliver bespoke metering and payment solutions, managing more than 40,000 customer heat accounts across more than 400 sites.
