The government are always looking for new ways to encourage home owners to install renewable technology in their property and to improve homes to make them more efficient and eco friendly.
This Scheme is only open to new applicants until 5.00pm on March the 31st 2021.
This is aimed at improving a properties energy efficiency by contributing up to £5000.00 to home owners and land lords to help improve their properties energy rating by installing a variety of green improvements. Heat pumps are among the list of improvements available on the voucher scheme.
The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (DRHI) is a government backed scheme over seen by Ofgem. It is paid to heat pump installation after the system is commissioned and is designed to bridge the gap between the cost of a conventional boiler and a heat pump. The RHI can be applied for up until March 2022 and is quarterly payments for seven years paid. Once on the scheme you will receive the full seven years payment.
To apply for the RHI the system must be fitted by an MCS (Microgeneration Scheme) The equipment used must also be MCS approved. Eco-Wright Energy has been MCS registered for ten years. There are also other factors to consider for example the amount of RHI is decided by the SCOP of the heat pump used. This is likened to miles per gallon to a car. We only install heat pumps with SCOPS of the highest possible rating.
