Plumb Center is offering to make installer’s lives easier when working with the domestic RHI through its new partner Evolve Partnership.

Evolve is a certificated Green Deal Advice Organisation with a nationwide network of Green Deal Advisors ready to produce reports, so installers don’t have to.

“To qualify for the RHI, a Green Deal Advice report must be carried out and the property must meet minimum insulation requirements before a customer can apply for the payments,” said David Brierley, managing director of Evolve.
 
“Some installers will be able to guide their customers through the entire process, but others may not be Green Deal Advisors or might not want to get involved with the admin side.
 
“That’s where we come in. Installers can come to us and say: ‘I have a customer who wants to install an air source heat pump under the RHI’ and we’ll sort out the advice report and RHI payment application, while the installer works on fitting and maintaining the system.
 
“We can do as much or as little as the installer wants, but it’s all about making their lives easier.”
 
Plumb Center’s renewables director, Simon Allan, added: “We’re delighted with our new partnership with Evolve, it can really benefit installers working with the RHI.
 
“Taking the paperwork out of the equation means installers are free to concentrate on what they’re best at, fitting the heating system.
 
“The RHI is providing exciting opportunities for installers and we want to give them all the support they need – great products, training and certification, and now help with making the job as simple as possible.”
