The RHI tariff levels have been announced by the Department of Energy and Climate Change and are set at 7.51p/kWh for air source heat pumps; 4.68/kWh for biomass boilers; 19.33p/kWh for ground source heat pumps and at least 19.74 p/kWh for solar thermal.

The new Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for householders is designed to drive forward uptake of renewable heat technologies in homes across Great Britain to cut carbon, help meet renewables targets and save money on bills. The scheme is a world first, and has been up and running for the non - domestic sector since November 2011.
