RHI Scheme & Savings

The Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) offers a guaranteed payment every quarter for 7 or 20 years; added together with the significant energy bill savings ground source heat pumps offer, and Kensa’s ground source heat pumps become a long-term low cost high return investment.

What is the RHI?

The RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) is a Government scheme open until 2021 that provides a guaranteed payment for 7 or 20 years to owners of renewable heating systems, including ground source heat pumps.

Which RHI is right for me?

There are two streams to the RHI – the Domestic RHI and the Non Domestic RHI.

Under the Domestic RHI you receive a guaranteed quarterly income for 7 years, under the Non Domestic RHI you get payments for 20 years. The Non Domestic stream can be accessed by those with multiple domestic dwellings as well as commercial properties, so do not be put off by the term ‘Non Domestic’.

Find out more about the RHI streams and identify which RHI is right for you using our handy guide here.
