Domestic RHI Extension Confirmed

Domestic RHI Extension Confirmed

18th November 2020

The Government recently confirmed the extension of the Domestic RHI to 31st March 2022, giving a further 12 months for applications under the domestic part of the scheme.

In particular, due to Covid-19 and problems accessing tradespeople or EPC assessors, this requirement has been relaxed. Now, installations with a commissioning date on or after 1 March 2019 can apply for accreditation to the Domestic RHI until 31 March 2022*.

Note that the Government have used this opportunity to  make two further minor administrative amendments to the domestic RHI Regulations. This includes:

  • a revision of degression triggers;
  • and an update to the references in the HIES code of conduct.

Contact your installer for additional details specific to your system. Alternatively submit an enquiry to the Usewoodfuel service for independent advice.

*Please check the government guidance and your installer/maintenance company to ensure that you can apply for extension.
