What is the Renewable Heat Incentive Program

In 2011, the first phase of the renewable heat incentive program came into force. The renewable heat incentive program is a program that pays for renewable heat that is generated by energy users. The renewable heat incentive program will be paid for by the Treasure and not by energy users. The aim of the renewable heat incentive program is to encourage the installation of heat equipment. Examples of these equipment are: biomass boilers, heat pumps, and solar thermal technologies.

The renewable heat incentive program is the first of its kind and can be accomplished in three simple steps. First of all, you need to install the renewable heat system in your property. This can be a solar thermal panel, a biomass boiler, or a heat pump. Once you have completed your installation, you need to measure the total amount of renewable energy that is produced by your system. Once you know the amount of renewable energy, you will receive payment for the amount of renewable energy produced, the type of technology you implemented and the size of the system.

You might be wondering if the renewable heat incentive program is for you. The answer is yes. The renewable heat incentive program is for everyone. It is for households, businesses, schools, hospitals, hotels, landlords, farmers, and much more. It is even meant for entire communities. People from a community can come together and share in the usage of the system and in the income provided from using renewable energy.

The renewable heat incentive program is similar to the Feed – In Tariffs which does cover electric. The renewable heat incentive program does not cover electricity. It consists of two phases. The first phase targets non-domestic sectors specifically the sectors that use the most heat such as the industrial and the business sector. The second phase will be more of an expansion phase in which more technologies would be included and support will be available for household and residential users.

The main aim of the renewable heat incentive is to revolutionize the way heat is used and generate and is the foundation for stabling our energy gesture.
