The ongoing obligations are effectively your responsibilities in relation to you, your property and your heating system.

You'll need to complete Annual declarationsopen key term pop-up every year to confirm to us that you’re continuing to follow the scheme rules and your ongoing obligations, so that we can pay you the correct amount of money for the renewable heat your heating system produces. We’ll send you a reminder by email when these are due. You can complete these on your MyRHI account. Make sure that you complete them in time or we may have to suspend your payments.
