Be on the Lookout for Updates on the Renewable Heat Incentive Says Solar Guide

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 9, 2011) - Solar Guide, the UK's free online resource for homeowners and engineers regarding all solar-related issues, is advising anyone interested in utilising solar power to investigate the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

The purpose of the RHI is to increase the level of heat generation in the UK from renewable sources such as sunlight and wind power.

The scheme is expected to cover all types of renewable heat systems, making it potentially open to everyone.

The general idea is that it will benefit homeowners, small businesses and community projects by allowing them to receive tariff payments for installing renewable heat systems in domestic properties.

As part of the RHI anyone who adopts an eligible technology will be able to benefit in three ways.

To start with, you will save money by no longer being reliant on gas or oil. Secondly, you will receive a payment for the amounts of heat and hot water you generate. The payout is up to 18p/kWhr. Finally, you'll be helping the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.

The launch of the RHI is expected to take place in June 2011 with full details of the scheme to be announced by the Government this month. In order to help everyone take advantage of the scheme, Solar Guide is providing all the latest information on it. To find out more, all you need to do is visit Details about qualifying technologies such as solar thermal, eligibility and tariff levels can all be explored on the website.

David Holmes, Founder of Solar Guide, said: "The wait will soon be over for the public to find out precisely how and when they can take advantage of the RHI. In light of this, Solar Guide is advising property owners to use its service to keep up to date with the latest news on this scheme.

"Not only can we help you to research everything you need to know on the RHI, we can also put you in touch with expert solar installers for free."
