There have been some recent changes to the Green Deal. In July 2015, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) decided not to fund further Green Deal Plan applications. Read our blog on what we think these changes mean for the Green Deal.
The Green Deal is the government’s scheme that enables homes and businesses to pay for energy efficiency improvements through the savings in their energy bills.
More about the Green Deal
RENEWABLE HEAT INCENTIVE
The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government financial incentive to encourage a switch to renewable heating systems.
If you join and comply with the scheme rules, you’ll receive quarterly payments for seven years. It’s a way to help the UK reduce its carbon emissions.
The eligible renewable heating system types for the Domestic RHI are:
- Biomass only boilers and biomass pellet stoves
- Air source heat pumps
- Ground source heat pumps
- Solar thermal panels - flat plate or evacuated tube only
Before applying for the Domestic RHI, you must first:
Have a Green Deal Assessment carried out for your property*. If you’ve already got one, you will not need another, provided that you can supply the Green Deal Advice Report number.
Install loft and cavity wall insulation if it’s recommended in the Green Deal Advice Report.
*Those who build their own homes incorporating an eligible heating system are exempt from having to carry out a Green Deal Assessment. This is because these houses would be built to recent building regulation standards.
