Renewable Heat Premium Payment Scheme – runs until 31 March 2012
The Renewable Heat Premium Payment Scheme launched by the government in August 2011 will run out by 31 March 2012. The scheme, which is open to home owners, is designed to encourage the take up of green heating technologies by providing funding. Anyone can apply for the £300 voucher towards solar thermal panels, but if you currently rely on oil, liquid gas, solid fuel or electricity then you can also apply for vouchers towards air, ground, or water source heat pumps (£850 – £1250) and biomass boilers (£950).
There are certain criteria that need to be met, such as ensuring you have already insulated your loft and cavity walls, where practical, but once you’ve ensured you can tick those boxes, you can fill out an application form online. If you would like more information you can visit the Energy Saving Trust website, or alternatively, you can talk to an advisor by calling for free on 0800 512 012.
