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.

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme


The Scheme opened on the 23rd of May 2022 and replaces the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive. With a budget of £450 million the BUS will run for three years and is hoped it will help the government meet their target to cut carbon emissions to net zero by 2050 by encouraging home owners to install low carbon heating solutions such as heat pumps..

The BUS is for home owners and small business owners in England and Wales. The BUS is a payment of £7500 towards the cost of either an Air Source or Ground Source.

The installer applies on the clients behalf, once the system is installed and commissioned it is paid directly to the installer taking all the hassle away for the property owner.


To apply for the BUS the system must be fitted by an MCS (Microgeneration Scheme) accredited installer and the equipment used must also be MCS approved. Eco-Wright Energy has been MCS registered for over ten years. The property must also have an up to date energy performance certificate EPC.
