Get paid for biomass: Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a world first: a financial incentive scheme for renewable heat generation. This is a ground-breaking scheme that will help the UK reduce carbon emissions and hit its EU renewable energy targets.
The RHI scheme for biomass heating means that you will get paid yearly to turn up the heat with your wood chip, wood pellet, or log boilers.
RHI: What’s in it for you?
- Guaranteed payments for each kWh of heat generated by a biomass boiler for a period of 20 years.
- A renewable energy system means your home or business won’t be affected by rising fuel (oil/gas) prices.
- Reduce the cost of your current energy bills as the RHI payments will pay for the heat generated.
- You will be making a positive difference to the environment, as biomass heating produces zero CO2 emissions.
The RHI is beneficial for both domestic and non-domestic sectors. Find out how much you can save below.
