Latest news – Increase in Renewable Heat Premium Payment voucher schemeThe Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) voucher scheme is part of a wider government programme which aims to gain 15% of the UK’s energy demand from renewable sources by 2020. The RHPP scheme makes one-off payments to householders to help them buy renewable heating technologies – solar thermal panels, heat pumps and biomass boilers.
As part of the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s desire to further support the growing market for domestic renewable heat, they consulted with industry on changes to the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) household scheme. Having taken into account their views, along with new data available on installation costs, they have decided to increase the voucher levels for each of the four eligible technologies.
The increase will come in to effect for voucher applications made on the Energy Saving Trust (EST) website from today (20 May 2013).
The new levels are:
- Air Source Heat Pumps £1,300
- Ground Source Heat Pumps £2,300
- Biomass Boilers £2,000
- Solar Thermal £600
How to apply
Applications can be made online through the Energy Saving Trust and to find out if you are eligible please see our Step to Step Guide.
