Renewable Heat Premium Payment

The Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) householder voucher scheme closed on 31 March 2014. Instead, homeowners can now apply for the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive scheme (RHI). A separate scheme exists for businesses, the public sector, and non-profit organizations. If you applied under RHPP you can still apply for help through the new RHI scheme. Your RHPP funding will be deducted from any RHI payments as you cannot get a double subsidy.
