You may have heard that in April the Government finally launched the long awaited Renewable Heat Incentive scheme that rewards home owners for the heat they produce from a qualifying air source heat pump, ground source heat pump or biomass boiler.

With the government providing 7.3p /kWh for air source heat pump energy, 18.8 p/kWh for ground and water source heat pump energy and 12.2 p/kWh for biomass boilers, many homeowners are more than paying pack the initial cost of the systems, but what else should you know about the RHI?

Apr 8, 2014

The eagerly awaited Government announcement, expected to be made Wed 9th April, detailing the extension of its Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) to cover domestic properties, will enable Gloucestershire based renewable energy specialists, Ecovision, to help homeowners take control of and cut their energy costs.

Over 1 million homes in Europe now have wood pellet boilers. Almost any home can be retrofitted with a wood pellet boiler as a stand-alone heat source.

Oct 31, 2013
Replacing your boiler with a renewable energy system in your home can, not only lower your fuel bills and carbon footprint significantly, but also generate income for you from Government incentives that could more than pay for the system.

We have been installing renewable and sustainable energy systems for almost a decade now from Lands End to the Scottish borders and beyond. We are very proud to be reducing the carbon footprint and utility bills of over 5,000 homes and businesses across the country and very likely across the road from you.

Sep 18, 2013
We outline the financial incentives available for homeowners considering renewable energy heating systems since the governments 12 July 2013 announcement of the level of tariffs for the RHI to be launched in the summer 2014.

"I worry about the nature of the world my children will inherit. We all do. Renewable technology isn't complex, it's here, now. Widespread adoption of this technology and other renewables will mean that the future for my children, for yours, and for people worldwide might not be as bleak as we are beginning to comprehend it could be. That's why I set up Ecovision in 2006." Chairman, Peter Randall

Heat pumps are one of the most effective forms of renewable energy and Ecovision is widely viewed as having one of the leading consultancy teams in the UK when it comes to designing, supplying and installing them. They extract heat from natural sources such as the air, ground or water and release it at a higher temperature to heat your property and/or produce hot water.

As part of one of the biggest ever renovation projects at Kelmarsh Hall in Northamptonshire, Ecovision have put in place a renewable energy system in the form of a water source heat pump a vital measure in protecting the fabric of this Grade 1 listed building dating back to the 1700s.

Kelmarsh will also benefit not only from a reduced carbon footprint but also a 60% decrease in it's annual consumption of oil meaning that the investment will pay for itself in just 5 years.

Around 1.5 million homes currently depend on heating oil in the UK. Most of these homes are in rural areas, off the gas grid.

Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pumps are the technology of choice for future heating systems. These will displace existing oil fired central systems in the process. By 2017, it is projected that ground and air source heat pumps will have overtaken heating oil. Oil fired central heating systems are set to all but disappear by 2025.

Tariffs for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) have been confirmed by the Dept. for Energy & Climate Change (DECC). Homeowners who install Renewable Energy Systems will qualify for Renewable Heat Incentive payments subject to eligibility criteria. Tariff levels are confirmed now, the scheme will launch in Spring 2014 and payments will be made for a period of 7 years. All Heat Pumps installed since 15th July 2009 will qualify.

DECC has announced that the FIT rate for Solar PV systems exceeding 50kW will drop from May 1st 2013.

The cutoff off date is for Eligible Installations with an Eligibility Date on or after 1 May 2013 and before 1 July 2013 when they are likely to drop again

Invest now to ensure the current rate.

Energy costs are often in the spotlight. Many businesses and public sector organisations have already taken measures to cut energy consumption with an aim to reduce costs and improve their carbon footprint. Solar PV is one of the leading solutions available, especially favoured for its flexibility of installation in a wide range of different locations.

In many places around the country snow is on the ground and there is much more forecast for more of us. So you've swapped your incandescent light bulbs for energy savers, turned down the thermostat, and only wash clothes on cold. Then why are your utility bills still so high? Air leaks are likely culprits, but so are "phantom" power suckers, such as flat-screen TVs, which draw energy even when they're off. 

Combine these steps you can do yourself with the installation of an efficient, money saving, renewable energy system and you will be able to see the benefits almost immediately.

We’ve made some changes to our homepage and added a few tools that we think will be of use to you: Because of the success of our unique Domestic Solar Calculator that has seen thousands of you work out how much income can be generated from a Solar PV system on the roof of your home we have done the same for Heat Pumps.

Next year will see the roll out of the Renewable Heat Incentive Tariff for domestic Air Source Heat Pumps. DECC has issued a statement outlining the proposed range of payments, we have taken the average rate of 9.2 and created the Heat Pump Calculator that you can find on the homepage.

From 1 November the FiT rate for residential installations up to 4kW will be cut, 4kW is typically a 16 panel system. It will also be cut for systems between 4kW-10kW. Commercial installs (10-50kW) also face a reduction.   The new FiT rates will apply for eligible solar PV installations from 1 November 2012 to 31 January 2013 when it will be cut again. Those systems installed before 1 November will receive the 16p rate for 20 years.

We have limited installation slots remaining. Call us now on 01666 501 580 for an instant quote.

Next week Southern Electric owner SSE will increase gas prices by 9 per cent. British Gas has also warned it may have to increase bills by an average of £130 before winter. This will take the average family’s dual fuel bill to a record high of around £1,400. Industry experts warn that it is inevitable that all of the major providers – British Gas, EDF, SSE, E.ON, Npower and Scottish Power – will announce a hike in their prices.

Solar PV still offers attractive returns for consumers, in excess of many alternative investment products. Improving consumer understanding of solar PV and the Feed-in Tariff scheme is likely to be key to restoring healthy uptake levels. We are pleased that the policy framework is now on a more stable footing and are optimistic that this will signal a new dawn of consumer confidence in the microgeneration sector.

Jan 25, 2012
The Court of Appeal today said that the High Court's ruling, that Decc's attempt to cut the subsidies before the end of its consultation had been unlawful, must stand. That means Decc will have to follow the contingency plan it laid before parliament last week to allow the full 43p/kWh for installations completed by 3 March.
