Green Deal Occupancy Assessment-East Anglian Energy Performance Certificates,EPC's
The Domestic RHI is a government financial incentive to encourage a switch to renewable heating systems. It’s a way to help the UK reduce carbon emissions and is for households both off and on the gas grid.
People who join the scheme and stick to its rules, receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat their system produces.
Key to joining is that the renewable heating system heats only a single property which is capable of getting a domestic Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) . The EPC is the proof needed that your property is assessed as a domestic ‘dwelling’. Without one, you won’t be able to apply and can’t join the scheme.
If your EPC recommends loft or Cavity wall insulation, this will have to be installed and a new EPC issued before the claim will be accepted. If it cannot be installed then it may still be possible to apply, but the RHI team will need to be contacted and supporting evidence will be required.
