Renewable Heat Premium Payments to double
Grants to help households invest in renewable heat technologies are to double, the Government has announced, reports Greenwise Business.
Money off vouchers available under the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme are rising from:
– £300 to £600 for solar thermal systems
– £950 to £2,000 for biomass boilers
– £850 to £1,300 for air source heat pumps
– £1,250 to £2,300 for ground source heat pumps
In order to claim for them, householders will now be required to undertake a Green Deal assessment.
Energy Secretary Ed Davey said the RHPP increases were being introduced to “kick start” the market for consumer renewable technologies.
