Stiebel Eltron welcomes new green tariffs

WIRRAL-BASED heat pump manufacturer Stiebel Eltron UK has welcomed the  confirmation of new tariff levels for the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

The Department for Energy & Climate Change (DECC) has announced that  tariff levels have been set at 7.3p/kWh for air source heat pumps, 18p/kWh for  ground source heat pumps and at least 19.2 p/kWh for solar thermal.

Mark McManus, Stiebel Eltron UK managing director, said the announcement  would help green businesses across Merseyside and the North West.

“The renewable energy industry – both in this region and across the UK – has  been waiting a long time for this and we are encouraged by the strong tariff  levels which will give homeowners the confidence to look at heat pump technology  as a viable heating option,” he said.

“The domestic RHI now gives a tangible incentive for householders who will  get a solid return on investment for reducing their carbon output.

“In the past many people who had been considering renewable energy were  sticking with traditional heating solutions, such as oil and LPG, due to the  uncertainty of Government incentive schemes – we hope this will now change.”
