The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) is a government financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat. People who join the scheme and stick to its rules receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat it’s estimated their system produces.
However, the Domestic RHI scheme closes at midnight on 31 March 2022. You need to apply by this date if you want to get Domestic RHI payments.

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (DRHI) is a government financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat, which can help reduce carbon emissions and meet the UK’s renewable energy targets.
The DRHI is open to all households, on and off the gas grid, who have installed a renewable heating system and meet the eligibility criteria. People who join and follow the scheme rules receive quarterly payments over seven years for clean, green, renewable heat their systems are estimated to produce.
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), is responsible for developing the underpinning RHI policy including setting tariffs, establishing the legislative framework, and introducing amendments to the scheme. Under the regulations, we are the administrator of the RHI. Any queries about aspects of policy should be addressed directly to BEIS. Under the regulations, Ofgem was appointed as the administrator of the DRHI scheme.
BEIS periodically reviews DRHI scheme policy which means the rules can change for both new and existing participants. To achieve successful accreditations and to keep receiving payments, it is important to keep up to date with the scheme rules.
Ofgem will publish information on how they administer policy changes. Please note that the content and timing of any changes they outline will be subject to parliamentary process. Their updates are based on information provided by BEIS.
