With only days to go until the incentive closes to applications it is important to note that the renewable heating system must be fully installed and commissioned before the application can be submitted and all applications must be properly made before the deadline. 

Ofgem has published extensive guidance on the closure of the DRHI in an ‘Essential Guide’  that includes information on the scheme’s closure and explains what prospective applicants must do as well as the information that must be submitted in order to make a successful application for accreditation to the scheme before the closing date of 31 March 2022. 

What are your views?

This guide sets out some key things you’ll need to know about applying, including the eligibility criteria for taking part in the scheme and the rules you will need to comply with. The guide also details the documentation you’ll need as well as the key steps in the application process. 

The guide is for information on the implications of the scheme’s closure rather than a comprehensive guide to the DRHI and OFGEM recommends it is best read alongside the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive essential guide for applicants, which provides full details about the scheme. 

What’s the impact on your business?

With the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive closing to new applicants at midnight at the end of 31 March 2022 and many installers suggesting this will impact negatively on their business we’d welcome your own views on the impact for your customers and business.
