Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS)
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) is the direct replacement for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme that closed to new applications at midnight on 31st March 2022.
Its aim is to continue supporting the installation of lower carbon heating options in England and Wales. Successful BUS applicants will receive an upfront grant designed to help towards the initial costs incurred when purchasing and installing a qualifying low carbon heating system.
If you are resident in England or Wales you can apply to the BUS scheme if your installation is commissioned on or after 1st April 2022. If you live in Scotland alternative advice and support is available.
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme covers three low carbon heating systems:
- Air Source Heat Pump: £5,000 off cost and installation
- Ground Source Heat Pump: £6,000 off cost and installation
- Biomass Boiler: £5,000 off cost and installation*
*The grant only covers biomass boilers for properties in rural locations that are not connected to mains gas*
Biomass boilers in self-build properties are not eligible under the scheme.
