Renewable Heat Incentive


The Renewable Heat Incentive started on 28 November 2011 for non domestic buildings. The largest RHI tariffs are for those renewable technologies which are not based on combustion – and do not release CO2.

RHI Tariff History

Owners of ground source heating installations in non-domestic buildings can receive a cashback subsidy, based on the metered heat use of a building (from the date that the building is accredited with Ofgem), of 9.36 pence per kilowatt hour used – for the first twenty years of use.

The RHI tariffs are increased each April by CPI adjustment.
