RHI delayed again

The DECC has announced that the launch of the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme for the domestic market will be delayed until spring 2014.

The scheme, launched for industrial and commercial customers in November 2011, is a key part of the government’s approach to cutting carbon and spurring on the uptake of renewable heating kit.

Energy and cimate change minister Greg Barker said: “The Renewable Heat Incentive, which has been available for non-domestic investors for over a year, is a key part of our approach to cutting carbon and driving forward the move to more sustainable low carbon heating alternatives.

“So far more than 1,000 groups have got on board, and today we have outlined details of our tariff review to help encourage even more organisations to invest.

“We remain committed to introducing an incentive scheme for householders too, and have today set out an updated timetable for its launch alongside plans to extend our renewable heat voucher scheme in the meantime.”
