More information


One of the key areas we measured as part of our customer satisfaction surveys is how helpful our staff are when answering customers' queries. On average, over the last 12 months, 68.6% of respondents rated our staff as ‘extremely helpful’ or ‘somewhat helpful’.

Our scores have remained well above target, which is a reflection of the difference our dedicated staff make to applicants, by providing them with the help and assistance they need to make their application.

Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI)

Over the past 12 months we have scored consistently well in relation to the helpfulness of our staff. This is because, our enquiries team are able to adapt their knowledge and style of approach when dealing with different customers, helping to ensure that they meet their needs.

Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Non-Domestic RHI)

Over the last 12 months, the volume of responses has been relatively low, therefore, the large fluctuations seen in the scores should not be viewed as significant due to the potential for a larger margin of error.

Renewables Obligation (RO)

The RO accreditation surveys ceased in August 2018.

Feed-In Tariffs (FIT)

The FIT application surveys ceased in August 2018.
