On Thursday 20th September Tracey was pleased to welcome Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker to local business ‘Plumbing & Trade Supplies’ in Aylesford. The visit was in conjuction with the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive consultations which were launched this week.
The consultation on proposals for a domestic scheme sets out the Government’s proposals for longer term support to householders who install renewable heating kit such as biomass boilers, heat pumps and solar thermal into homes. The RHI for householders is aimed at any householder looking to replace their current heating with renewable heating kit or householders who have installed any such technology since 15 July 2009. It is intended that householders will get paid for each kWh of heat they would be expected produce under the current proposals. More information on this consultation and how to respond to it can be found on the Renewable Heat Incentive: proposals for a domestic scheme page. The deadline for responses is 7 December 2012.
The consultation on Renewable Heat Incentive includes expanding the non-domestic scheme sets out our broad proposals to expand the existing scheme. More information on this consultation and how to respond to it can be found on the Renewable Heat Incentive: expanding the non-domestic scheme page. Deadline for responses is 7 December 2012.

Tracey said “I was delighted to welcome the Energy and Climate Change Minister to Plumbing Trade Supplies in Aylesford this week. It is vital we are supporting local businesses and encouraging people to reduce their carbon footprint. The Renewable Heat Incentive Consultation shall benefit businesses such as Plumbing Trade Supplies whilst working towards meeting the Government’s renewable targets and I look forward to seeing the consultation’s results.”
Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker said:
“We need to revolutionise the way we heat our homes and businesses and move away from expensive fossil fuels, not only to cut carbon but to help meet our renewables targets and save money on bills.
“Our proposals aim to encourage even more uptake of clean green heating in industry and in our businesses. We have also set out our views on long term support for those who invest in low carbon kit in their homes and we look forward to hearing your thoughts.”
