DMS - Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive

Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive - Heat Pumps - Electricity Metering

DMS Logo

The tariffs for domestic air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps, biomass boilers and stoves are being increased from Spring 2017. Domestic RHI applications submitted on or after 14 December 2016 will be eligible to receive these increased tariffs, but they will only apply to payments made from Spring 2017.


  • The tariffs for new ASHPs will be increased to 10.02 pence per kilowatt-hour (p/kWh).
  • The tariffs for new GSHPs will be increased to 19.55p/kWh.
  • The tariff for new biomass installations will be increased to 6.44p/kWh, the level available between October and December 2015, adjusted for inflation.

All new ASHPs and GSHPs applying for support under the scheme will be required to have electricity metering to monitor their heating system. However, payments will continue to be on the basis of the deemed heating requirements of the property, except for second homes and where a renewable heating system is installed alongside another heating system, in which cases payments will continue to be on the basis of heat metering.

DMS Metering Solutions hold a large range of RHI Meters and Electricity Meters in stock for next day delivery, including big brands such as Sontex, Itron, Sharky (Diehl) and Danfoss. We are also pleased to introduce the Sontex Superstatic 470 Energy Meter which is specifically designed for measuring Air Source, Ground Source and Water Source Heat Pumps.
