New regulations came into effect on 22 May 2018. For information on what the Government changes mean for you, please see our webpage changes to the scheme.
Tariffs set the rate for your Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments. People who join the scheme and stick to its rules receive quarterly payments over seven years. The rates are set by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), formerly known as the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). You can view BEIS' budget announcements on their website.
