£1,250.00 Renewable Heating Voucher Deadline Extended

Renewable Heat Premium Payment Phase 2 Extension

The Renewable Heat Premium Payment is a one-off grant designed to help towards meeting the costs of installing renewable technologies in your home, until the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is introduced for domestic customers.
An extension to the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme was announced by the Department of Energy and Climate Change on 26 March 2013. The scheme is being extended until the end of March 2014, ahead of the RHI scheme for householders.

The extension continues to offer one-off grants to householders across England, Scotland and Wales to help with the cost of installing renewable heating technologies.
