RHI increases 2018

From April 1, 2018, Ofgem will increase the unit payment for the Non-Domestic (Commercial) and Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

The CPI increase was 3% for the year to end December 2017 and so tariffs will increase as follows.

Non-Domestic (Commercial) RHI

  • from 2.61p per kWh to 2.69p per kWh for air source heat pumps
  • from 9.09p per kWh to 9.36p per kWh for ground source heat pumps

Domestic RHI

  • from 7.63p per kWh to 10.49p per kWh for air source heat pumps
  • from 19.64p per kWh to 20.46p per kWh for ground source heat pumps

Customers who currently receive the RHI for their ground and air source heat pump installations will not need to do anything to benefit from the change. Payments will be adjusted automatically from April 1, 2018.
