Incentives

There are a number of government run schemes available to help fund/maintain your energy reduction quest. The most benficial being the Feed-in Tariffs and Renewable Heat Incentives;

Feed-in Tariffs

For any business producing their own electricity via a renewable source (I.E, Anaerobic Digesters, Solar Panels) The government pay you this per kilowatt hours you produce. There’s also a tariff payable for any excess electric you produce and sell back to the grid (known as export).

There are two variants for feed-in tariffs, please click on the link below for more information;

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

Similar to Feed-In tariffs the government also run a scheme for generating your own heat through a renewable source (I.E, Anaerobic Digesters). Understandably there is no option to export this.

As quoted on the Ofgem website;

 What is the Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive?

The Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a Government environmental programme that provides financial incentives to increase the uptake of renewable heat. For the non-domestic sector broadly speaking it provides a subsidy, payable for 20 years, to eligible, non-domestic renewable heat generators and producers of biomethane for injection based in Great Britain. Of course this is subject to the detailed scheme rules.

Ofgem is responsible for implementing and administering the scheme on behalf of the Department of Energy and Climate Change.
