Government Incentives & Policy
The reward for choosing heat pump technology
The UK government has introduced a number of policies and incentive schemes, which have been designed with the aim of increasing uptake of ground source and air source heat pumps.
Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive
Self/Custom Build & Retrofit
Payments over 7 Years
Did you know that you can get paid by the Government to install heat pump technology in your home? As part of the UK commitment to global climate change targets, the domestic RHI has been introduced to promote the adoption of ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps.
The Domestic RHI is aimed at private residential self-build and custom build, as well as all retrofit applications
Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive
Payments over 20 Years
The Non-Domestic RHI is a Government programme which provides financial incentives over a 20 year period for the use of renewable heating products, such as ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps.
Payments are based on the metered amount of heat produced by the heat pump, and are index-linked, meaning payments should increase year on year.

It is established fact that energy efficient homes attract higher property prices. However, at Alto Energy we understand that achieving building regulations and improving the thermal performance of each property can be a difficult path to navigate.
Heat pumps and underfloor heating save carbon dioxide emissions compared with conventional fossil fuel technologies and radiator distribution. These carbon savings contribute to towards your compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations.
