Proposed RHI Cap April 2017

A proposal document issued by the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC), has set out proposals to apply a cap on the amount of Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments

The Government have released The document, “The_Renewable_Heat_Incentive_-_A_reformed_and_refocussed_scheme“, was issued in March of this year and proposes that the levels of renewable heat on which payments are paid will be limited to 25,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) for ground source heat pumps, and 20,000 kWh for air source heat pumps.

While these are only proposals at this stage, if your property is particularly large or has a high heat demand due to its age or insulation levels and therefore has a higher heat demand than the proposed limits, the value of RHI payments applicable to you could be impacted. In order to maximise your returns and secure your payments, it’s vital to have your heat pump installed and registered for the RHIĀ before April of next year. While that may seem a long way off, it’s important to remember that should these proposals be ratified, there will almost certainly be a rush of enquiries for heat pump systems and a clamour for subsequent RHI applications. Equally, it won’t be too long before we head into the autumn and the temperatures start to dip, so contacting us early can ensure you are best placed to get your system installed before the next heating season and well in advance of any cap being applied.
