RHI extension

The Government have announced a 12-month extension to the domestic RHI, which will run until 31 March 2022. It was announced in today’s response following the “Changes to the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) schemes” consultation. The extension to the domestic scheme will prevent 1.2 million tonnes of CO2 from polluting the atmosphere over the lifetime of these smaller-scale projects, through converting 18,000 households onto low-carbon heating.

The consultation “Future support for low carbon heat”, where the Gov’t is seeking views on options beyond the Renewable Heat Incentive is still open and closes on  7th July.
