Thousands of households have received support under the UK’s initiative that supports domestic low carbon heating systems.

According to DECC, 25,000 homes have been accredited through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme, with installations of technologies such as heat pumps, solar thermal systems and biomass boilers.

The domestic RHI was launched in April 2014 and is the first scheme of its kind in the world.

It pays people for the heat they generate for their homes and is open to everyone, including homeowners and social landlords.

Amber Rudd MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Climate Change said: “It’s very encouraging that in only a number of months 25,000 people have already taken up the incentive – proving that installing renewable heating can be a real, everyday choice for people’s homes.”
