RHI premium payment: domestic

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

As part of the first phase, the Government aim to launch the Renewable Heat Premium Payments for the domestic sector in July 2011.

In return for these direct payments, participants will be asked to provide some feedback on how the equipment works in practice and suppliers will be asked to provide a follow up service on any issues that are raised.

Up to 25,000 installations from July will be supported by a “RHI Premium Payment” (worth around £15m) to help people cover the purchase price of green heating systems. Those taking up the Premium will then be eligible for a RHI tariff from October next year when the Green Deal begins.
