Under the Renewable Heat Incentive, you will receive quarterly cash payments over seven years if you install or have already installed an eligible renewable heating technology if you apply in time. The domestic RHI launched on 9 April 2014 and provides financial support to the owner of the renewable heating system for seven years. The scheme covers England, Wales and Scotland. The Renewable Heat Incentive will close to new applications from the 31st March 2022.

Grants For Air Source Heat Pump Installations
It is reported that Heat Pump grants will be made available through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme of up to £5000 for Air Source Heating and £6000 towards the installation of a Ground Source Heat Pump. In comparison, the RHI paid out over a 7 year period for the energy generated on a quarterly basis.
It is reported that eligibility for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme will be very similar to The Green Homes Grants application process. This means that BUS is open to applications from any homeowner across England and Wales who is interested in installing a low carbon heating system.

Grants and Incentives
From April 2022, homeowners who want to install low-carbon heating measures in their properties in England and Wales could receive a £5000 grant from the Government to help fund some of the costs
