Skyrad meets the technical standards to apply for funding from a number of different schemes, as well as to comply with incoming energy regulation.
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
Run by Ofgem, the domestic version of the Renewable heat incentive for householders proposes that people who install Skyrad on domestic properties are eligible for a payment of 17.3p/kWh of solar heat generated, for 7 years. For a larger property with Skyrad fitted, this would give you a grant of £1000 -£1100 per year. Any qualifying system installed after 2009 will be eligible for the scheme. More Information
The non-domestic Renewable heat incentive is currently open to operators in the non-domestic sector. It provides long term (up to 20 year) fees for heat generated through renewable methods. Currently you could receive 9.2p/kWh for heating generated with a solar collector if you are eligible under the scheme. Details are given on the Ofgem website.
Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP)
Solar Thermal systems such as Skyrad qualify for a one off payment of £600. More Information
Green Deal and ECO
Skyrad is being approved for the Green Deal and ECO. As Skyrad combines both insulation and solar thermal, it can qualify as a measure under the Carbon Saving Obligation and the Carbon Saving Communities Obligation as well as the RHI. This can provide a substantial up front subsidy, as well as the ongoing RHI payments. Please contact us for details regarding your specific project.
