Energy and renewables

Installing green technologies in your self-build can not only offer energy savings in the long run, you might qualify for Government schemes to help pay for them.

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

The main funding scheme offered by the Government for installing renewable heati ng such as biomass, ground source and air source heat pump technologies, is the Renewable Heat Incenti ve (RHI). The domesti c RHI is for single-rated properti es and is payable for seven years. Quarterly tax-free payments, which increase annually in line with the consumer price index, are made to the homeowner. The amount of RHI payable is based on the energy performance certi ficate (EPC) you receive once your heati ng installati on is complete. Typically, a biomass installati on could payback in about eight years (depending on fuel source). A ground or air source heat pump system usually pays back in four to five years.
