The Government recently announced details of its Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme where homeowners who install green technologies will be eligible for incentive payments. We look at the scheme and the challenges faced in installing the most popular renewable heat technology, solar power.
What Is The Scheme?
Renewable energy sources such as solar thermal, heat pump and biomass technology are a vital element in the long-term energy strategy for the UK. It is widely accepted that reliance on fossil fuels is not sustainable and that alternative sources of power are necessary in order to diminish our dependence on non-UK sourced power, cut energy bills and reduce our carbon footprint.
