Householders could get paid hundreds of pounds a year for heat generated by all of the technologies that Dalliam install. That is users of qualifying solar thermal panels, biomass boilers and heat pumps systems installed after 15 July 2009 could be paid under the new Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for householders Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker confirmed on 12 July 2013. This is referred to as RHI domestic.

The tariff levels have been set at 7.3p/kWh for air source heat pumps; 12.2p/kWh for biomass boilers; 18.8p/kWh for ground source heat pumps and at least 19.2 p/kWh for solar thermal.

The new RHI domestic is designed to drive forward uptake of renewable heat technologies in homes across Great Britain to cut carbon, help meet renewables targets and save money on bills. The scheme is a global first, and mirrors the non - domestic sector which has RHI running since November 2011.

The announcement follows extensive consultation on how a financial incentive would work best for householders and takes into account lessons learned from the Renewable Heat Premium Payment grant scheme (RHPP) and the RHI non domestic scheme mentioned above.

Greg Barker is quoted as saying:

"The Coalition is committed to helping hardworking families with the cost of living."

"Investing for the long term in new renewable heat technologies will mean cleaner energy and cheaper bills. So this package of measures is a big step forward in our drive to get innovative renewable heating kit in our homes. "

"Householders can now invest in a range of exciting heating technologies knowing how much the tariff will be for different renewable heat technologies and benefit from the clean green heat produced. We are also sending a clear signal to industry that the Coalition is 110 percent committed to boosting and sustaining growth in this sector."

Dalliam provides a variety of solutions that are potential sources of “sustainable” heat. They not only include solar thermal panels (hot water), which could be fitted to a roof and used to heat water but also heat pumps that are capable of drawing warmth from the ground or air outside the building and biomass boilers.
