Encouraging homeowners to use more efficient energy sources, in turn supporting and promoting sustainable technology, the UK Government are offering a financial incentive, the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
Homeowners who install specific green technologies in their homes can receive payments based on the amount of energy generated by their heat pumps and solar PV panels.
- Heat pump users can claim over the first 7 years’ usage
- Solar PV panel users are offered an extended 20 year period
Air source and ground source heat pumps together with solar PV powered heating from Inspired Renewables meet the criteria for reimbursement under this government-funded cashback scheme.
