Domestic Renewable Heating Systems
As installers accredited under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (“MCS”), domestic heating systems incorporating biomass, solar thermal or heat pumps can be designed to take advantage of the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive ("RHI") scheme.
The Domestic RHI scheme currently offers quarterly payments over 7 years for qualifying heating systems providing space heating and domestic hot water to a single domestic property. Loft and cavity wall insulation will need to be in place and you will need an Energy Performance Certificate (“EPC”) which is less than 24 months old. The equipment itself must be listed on the Product Eligibility List (PEL) published by Ofgem and installed by an MCS accredited installer. There is no limit on the installed capacity, but the equipment must be certified by MCS. All wood fuel used must be purchased from a supplier registered on the Biomass Suppliers List (“BSL”).
There is lots more information available on the Ofgem website or please get in touch if you would like to discuss your requirements.
