Grants and funding for heat pumps.
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) ended earlier in 2022 in the UK. The Clean Heat Grant, also known as the Boiler Upgrade Scheme , is a government scheme launched in spring 2022. This is a £5,000 or £6,000 payment administrated via an MCS accredited heat pump installer. It is likely to rise to £7,500 later in 2023.
