What is the Renewable Heat Premium Payment?

This is a UK Government scheme designed to help you afford renewable technologies for your home, such as:

  • Solar thermal panels
  • Heat pumps ( air source, ground source or water source), and
  • Biomass boilers
  • The Renewable Heat Premium Payment scheme will run from 1 August 2011 – 31 March 2012. However, you can register your interest beforehand.

    Who can apply for the Renewable Heat Premium Payment?

    If you live in England, Scotland or Wales, you are eligible to apply for the Renewable Heat Premium Payment.

    No matter how you currently heat your home and how much fuel you already use, anyone can apply for solar thermal panels. However, if you currently rely on oil, liquid gas, solid gas or electricity then you could also apply for air, ground – or water – source heat pumps and biomass boilers.

    So only those who do not currently use gas as their main heating fuel can apply for these technologies.

    If you have any further questions about whether you can apply, please feel free to give one of our friendly advisors a call on: 0800 512 012.
