Similar to a service contract, the meters will enable you and your installer to see the measured performance of your system online. The aim is to give you peace of mind that your system is working properly, and allow the installer to improve performance where possible.
The payment of £230 per year for heat pumps and £200 for biomass boilers is to reimburse you for the cost of the package over the 7 year life of the RHI payments. This package is not available for biomass stoves. The packages are available on a first come first served basis. They must be MCS (or equivalent scheme) certified (both product and installer) and the installer must be a member of the renewable energy consumer code (RECC).
To qualify for the Domestic RHI, your property must be Green Deal assessed.
