Screen Shot 2015-06-24 at 09.28.56Ryedale District Council and Yorkshire Energy Partnership are hosting an event to promote renewable technologies and the recently launched Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

The RHI is a government incentive to help people install renewable technologies such as ground and air source heat pumps. Householders will be paid for every unit of heat energy generated for seven years after the installation. They will also benefit from reduced energy bills due to the cheaper running costs of renewable technologies, particularly in areas not served by mains gas.

Yorkshire Energy Partnership have also recently launched a ‘free solar PV scheme’, where residents with south facing properties can have solar panels installed on their homes, free of charge.

The event is being held at Methodist Church, Sheriff Hutton, YO60 6SH on Tues 30th June from 15:00 until 19:00. Residents are encouraged to call in to speak to reputable local installers and discuss the suitability of such measures to your property. There will also be an opportunity to discuss other technologies such as solar panels and home insulation.

To reserve a place at the event, call Yorkshire Energy Partnership on 01904 545 020 or e-mail advice@energypartnership.org.uk. Anyone interested in installing renewables but who is unable to attend this event is also urged to get in touch to find out more.
