RHI for Commercial Air Source Heat Pump Installations Confirmed

LLA 60 TU Air Source Heat Pump Room Shotast week the Government confirmed that commercial Air Source Heat Pump installations would be eligible for funding under the Non Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive scheme.

With the support from the Non Domestic RHI, a well installed Air Source Heat Pumps running costs could be reduced to as little as 0.8p / kW of heat produced which is much lower than alternative fossil fuels (6.5p / kW for oil and 3.5p / kW for mains gas), which makes the use of Air Source Heat Pumps for commercial premises a very viable option. Any Air Source Heat Pump installed after the 4th December 2013 could be eligible to receive payments from this Government cash back scheme provided the criteria as set out by Ofgem have been met.

The RHI for commercial Air Source Heat Pump installations is set at 2.5p / kW so for every kW of heat produced you receive 2.5p. For Air Source Heat Pump installations there are no tiered payments as there are for Non Domestic Biomass and Ground Source Heat Pumps.
