Following the announcement on 10th March 2011, Parliament have recently approved a new renewable heat incentive scheme from the governments Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC). This new funding scheme will mean householders across the UK could receive up to £1,250 towards the cost of installing renewable heating systems to their home.
The scheme will mainly be focused at households that depend on more carbon burning heat supplies, and are not supplied by a mains gas supply. Applications will be open from the 1st August 2011, once applicants have been confirmed as legible for the grant they will receive a voucher for the installation. These must be redeemed by the expiry date on the voucher or by 31st March 2012.
Grants that will be available to most households from the 1st August 2011 are as follows:
- £300 towards solar thermal hot water panels (households with and without mains gas),
- £1250 towards a ground source heat pump (households without mains gas),
- £950 towards a biomass boiler (households without mains gas),
- £850 toward an air source heat pump (households without mains gas).
With this new scheme in place the DECC expect to support more than 25,000 installations and will help dramatically reduce heat outgoings and the domestic carbon footprint.
