Yesterday, the Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) launched their Renewable Heat Calculator. The online tool will enable consumers in England, Scotland and Wales calculate how much they might receive if they install a heating system through the RHI.
According to the leading trade body, the Heating & Hot Water Industry Council (HHIC), the newly launched Renewable Heat Calculator is ‘good for consumers and industry alike’.
“Anything that helps to educate consumers about renewable heating will in turn help the heating industry. Consumers need to understand the full picture when considering installing a renewable heating system and being able to identify the payments they will be eligible to receive will assist the decision making process.” Commented Roger Webb, Director of HHIC.
The tool has been designed through a joint project between the Scottish Government, DECC and the Energy Saving Trust and can be accessed by clicking here.
