FAQs

Can I apply for more than one technology?
Yes, although you must complete a separate application form for each technology. You cannot apply twice for the same technology at the same installation address.
What if I can’t install the required basic energy efficiency measures?
You must install the appropriate energy efficiency measures to be eligible for a voucher so this is a requirement only where it is possible to install the measures. So, for example, if you live in a solid wall property that does not have cavities then you do not need to install cavity wall insulation.
If I make a successful application to the scheme and receive a Renewable Heat Premium Payment voucher, how long is it valid for?
This depends on the technology you have applied for. The voucher validity periods for each of the technologies are listed below.
  • Solar Thermal Hot Water - 3 months
  • Air Source Heat Pump - 5 months
  • Ground Source Heat Pump - 6 months
  • Biomass boiler - 6 months
The date on the voucher refers to the date that the valid claim is received by the Energy Saving Trust. In any case, no voucher will be valid beyond 31st March 2012 and no extensions will be given. The completed voucher claim together with the invoice and the Microgeneration Certification Scheme certificate should be sent to the address indicated on the voucher. It is recommended that this is sent by recorded delivery.
