A feed-in tariff incentive for solar heating panels has been announced. The Renewable Heat Incentive for solar heating is now available. Announced this week by Greg Barker of the Department of Energy and Climate Change. This is similar to an already existing PV export tariff for photovoltaic solar panels.
