The Government recently published its response to the consultation on Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) reform. For information on what the Government changes mean for you, please read our Changes to the scheme web page.

If you’re thinking about applying to the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme, this section is for you. 

If you’ve not yet installed a renewable heating technology, have a look at the flow chart below. It helps you understand the joining requirements so you can make sure that you, your property and your planned heating system meet them. Time spent on research before choosing your equipment and installer could affect whether you’re approved when you come to apply.

If you've already installed a renewable heating system, you have up to 12 months to apply to the scheme from its commissioning date. That's the date your installer tests and signs off the system (you can find it on your Microgeneration Certification Scheme certificate). You’ll still need to read our Essential Guide for Applicants before applying and don’t forget to check our Product Eligibility List to see if your product meets the scheme rules.

Once you’re approved to join the Domestic RHI, you have to comply with the rules for the seven years that you’re receiving payments. Make sure you’re aware of what will be required of you by reading our web pages on audit checks and ongoing obligations.
