What you’ll need

To complete the application form for the Domestic RHI, you’ll need:

Invoices or records stating both the cost of the system and labour to install (these can be approximations and will not affect your payments or eligibility).

Depending on circumstances, we may need to review your application. See the ‘Once submitted’ tab for further information.

For more help with completing your application, see the ‘How to apply’ section in the Essential Guide for Applicants and our application form helpsheet.

For full information about the Domestic RHI, see all of our Essential Guides.

A few things to note

The application form will work on all devices but we recommend you use your computer (rather than a smartphone or tablet) where possible.

We ask that the applicant completes the form personally as bank and personal details are required. If it’s difficult for you to complete an online application because you have a disability or you don’t have easy access to a computer, please contact our applicant support centre for help.

Please see our full terms and conditions in the Publications and Updates below.

Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)

All renewable heating systems in the Domestic RHI must be certified by MCS. This is an internationally recognised quality assurance scheme supported by government. You’ll need an MCS certificate number to support your application. More.

Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)

This is a report that assesses the energy efficiency of a property and recommends how it can improve. It’s the proof we need that your property is a ‘dwelling’. More.
