The domestic RHI scheme is for home-owners and private and social landlords who want to install renewable heating systems in their homes in England, Wales and Scotland.
It will provide long term financial support for property owners who install renewable heating systems and is due to be launched in the spring. It will mark a milestone in energy efficiency as it will be the first time every building in the country will be able to take advantage of financial incentives to install renewable heat technologies.
In order to help people to find out more about the domestic RHI scheme, the Department of Energy and Climate Change will be attending a series of property and renewable energy roadshows this spring.
Property owners will receive quarterly payments for seven years to help cover the cost of installing a renewable heating system. The scheme applies to certain types of hot water and heating systems including air source heat pumps, biomass boilers, ground source heat pumps and solar thermal systems.
At the roadshows, attendees will also be able to find out how the domestic RHI and the Green Deal will work together to ensure that all participants benefit from having a smarter, warmer home.
The Scottish roadshows will be on
