It has been revealed that more than 10,000 households have already reaped the benefits.

The article: Increase in Money Off Vouchers Available Under RHPP, published 3rd July in HVP, reveals that the scheme works by providing consumers with money off the cost of the equipment. These payments have now been increased; to £2,300 for ground source heat pumps, £2,000 for biomass boilers, £1,300 for air source heat pumps and £600 for solar thermal systems. The changes were announced by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and it has been revealed that more than 10,000 households have already reaped the benefits.

Greg Barker, Energy and Climate Change Minister explains that “This time limited, big increase in the value of vouchers for hardworking people who want to do something positive to install money saving green heating in their homes, should be a real boost for this growing green sector.”

Well known for their Sutton emergency plumbers, Plumber 24 Hours operates throughout the country, also specialising in gas heating. Taking a keen interest in the energy efficient home heating systems, the team were delighted to hear of this extended project. A representative from the agency shares their thoughts on the latest news.

“It’s great to see people being rewarded for making the switch to more energy efficient and environmentally friendly equipment. 10,000 homes have already taken advantage of the deal and we will be interested to see how many more look into this by the time the scheme ends. As well as the money off vouchers, homeowners also stand to make further savings in the long term.”

The scheme, which has been extended, is set to run until the end of March next year.
