* The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is the world’s first long-term financial support program for renewable heat. The proposed scheme is due to launch in spring 2014; however, systems installed after July 2009 are proposed to qualify. It is proposed that the government will pay individuals at least 19,2p per kWh for 7 years. For a standard 2 panel system, this means £174 per year and a total of £1,222 over the 7 years support period.
