Government incentives for installing renewable heating
The heat is on for renewables. The government will now pay you for installing a renewable heating system in your home. How does that work?

The scheme is open to owners, tenants, private and registered social landlords and even self-builders. Only housebuilders installing renewable heating systems in new-build homes are excluded.
