The Renewable Heat Premium Payment scheme

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. How you currently heat your home will depend on which technologies you are able to apply for.

Those who have recently removed a mains gas heating system or currently heat their home with mains gas are only eligible to apply for Solar Thermal.

However, if you currently rely on oil, liquid gas, solid fuel or electricity then you could also apply for air to water source heat pumps, ground - or water - source heat pumps and biomass boilers. If you have any further questions about whether you can apply, contact us today 01455 203017.
