Funding for heat pumps and solar heating
In order to promote the take up of renewable and micro-generation technologies, a number of funding programmes have been set up by the government to provide grant subsidies to householders, social housing providers, local authorities and commercial developers.
To be eligible for a grant, both the product and installer must be accredited under either Clear Skies or the new UK Microgeneration Certification Scheme.
