Funding your new heating system

Help with funding 

 

There are interest free loans, grants and discounts available when you make your home more energy efficient.  Home Energy Scotland has lots of information about the help available.

 

If you choose the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) scheme, we can help with your application as we are Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) certified. 

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

 

“The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) is a government financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat. Switching to heating systems that use eligible energy sources can help the UK reduce its carbon emissions and meet its renewable energy targets.

 

People who join the scheme and stick to its rules receive quarterly payments for seven years for the

amount of clean, green renewable heat it’s estimated their system produces.” Source Ofgem website

To join the RHI scheme you will need to provide various documents including:

  • Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) certificate number
