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’.
