Newly increased Renewable Heat Premium Payment vouchers available for domestic renewable heating installations

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has announced that a £12million fund is being made to increase the payments available to householders across Britain who are switching to renewable heating. The money will be available in the form of vouchers under the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme and is targeted at those living off the gas grid – where the greatest savings can be made on bills and carbon reduction.

Since July 2011, DECC has run two phases of the household voucher scheme and has supported over 10,000 new renewable heat installations. These newly increased vouchers will be replaced in March 2014 with the Renewable Heat Incentive for householders (domestic RHI) – details of which have yet to be announced.

Technology Voucher Value
Ground Source Heat Pumps £2,300
Biomass Boiler £2,000
Air Source Heat Pumps £1,300
Solar Thermal £600

Householders will now be required to undertake a Green Deal assessment before submitting a claim on the Energy Saving Trust website to redeem their voucher.

The Renewable Heat Premium Payment scheme – Phase 2 extension will run from 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2014, subject to available funding.
