Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Installation of PV systems to Our Services convert sunlight into electricity This electricity can be used on site or exported back to the grid system Solar Thermal Installation of Solar collectors to convert the radiant heat from the sun to hot water for Space and Water heating Heat Pumps Heat pumps are used to convert latent heat stored in the ground, water or air to high temperature water for space and water heating
Energy Efficient Lighting Our Services Installation Lighting schemes which are designed to reduce running costs, reduce maintenance costs and reduce heat gain in buildings Improved energy control Installation of control systems to provide more effective use of the energy provision Heat Recovery Ventilation Changing the air in buildings is a major heat loss factor By installing systems which preheat the replacement air using the exhaust is a great way of making savings.

Options are: > Pre-planned reductions 01 October 2013 -10% (11p) > Contingent reductions (based on uptake) > Reviews > Quotas (so much allocated per year) 01 April 2014 -10% (10p) Should a ROI of 4.5% be maintained? Should the link to RPI be removed? 01 October 2014 -10% (8.9p) Should the 25yr contract be cut to 20yrs? What happens when we reach 8.9p per kWh?
Renewable Heat PremiumPayment The RHPP is an incentive to encourage the uptake of renewable technologies for Space & Water Heating These include Air and Ground Source Heat Pumps, Solar Thermal, and Biomass Boilers Phase I of the RHPP ended on 31st March 2012 £4m was left in the pot due to poor uptake Phase II of the scheme has been announced and you can already pre-register for a grant if you have a scheme planned This second phase will run from 1st May 2012 to 31st March 2013 Phase II has a total pot size of £25m of which £7m will be used to extend Phase I of the scheme with £18 being made available for Social and Community based schemes
Renewable Heat PremiumPayment The main levels of grant will be as follows: Solar Thermal Installations £300 Air Source Heat Pumps £850 Biomass Boilers £950 Ground Source Heat Pumps £1250
Renewable Heat Incentive The RHI is the Space and Water Heating equivalent of the Feed in Tariff The introduction of RHI for domestic installations has been delayed until mid 2013 but will be backdated for installations completed after July 2009 You will receive a payment for each kWh of Hot water you generate using renewable technologies The rate is still to be announced but are likely to be Solar Thermal 8.5p per kWh 18 year contract GSHP 4.5p per kWh 20 year contract Small Biomass 7.9p per kWh 20 year contract
