Ofgem reports on first 1000 domestic RHI applicants

July 21, 2014 featured image

In a short report, Ofgem has published a ‘stats teaser’ on the first 1000 accreditations under the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

The report states that in the first seven weeks of opening, 1000 installations were accredited on the scheme and the participants are now set to receive seven years of quarterly payments from the government.

Topping that popularity charts is air source heat pumps scoring over 370 installations, closely followed by solar thermal and biomass stoves or boilers.

Accredited installations came from both newly installed applicants and legacy applicants alike.

Thousands of homeowners who applied for the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) before 20th May 2013 will be able to apply for the Domestic RHI from 9th July 2014.

Those who applied for RHPP after 20th May 2013 will be able to apply from 9th October 2014. Both groups, as with all legacy applications, will have until 8th April 2015 to apply to the scheme.

Ofgem has also tweeted that the scheme’s 3000th heating system has been accredited today (July 18th).
