Commercial Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

The updated Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) grant scheme was launched by the UK government in July 2014. Replacing the previous grant tariffs, the RHI is designed to provide a financial incentive to businesses for installing renewable heating technologies.

Get paid to heat your property

The RHI grant provides payment for every unit (kWh) of renewable energy used in the property, with differing tariff levels for each of the renewable technologies. Payments are made directly in to a bank account every quarter for twenty years.
