TRAVIS PERKINS GROUP EXCITED BY RHI OPPORTUNITY
Paul Joyner, MD of Sustainable Building Solutions, part of Travis Perkins Group, said:
"The launch of the RHI today is fabulous news and we are celebrating today. This will form a major boost to the renewable heating industry and the drive to reduce the country's carbon emissions."
“With £2.7 billion of funding available to inspire an anticipated 750,000 installations by 2020, we are expecting the RHI to do for the renewable heating sector what Feed In Tariffs did for solar photovoltaics."
"What is most exciting about the RHI is the way it ties renewable heat generation together with the need to get the fabric of the building right first. To qualify for RHI payments, each building has to undergo a Green Deal Assessment to prove the fabric of the building is sufficient to keep the heat in".
"This is a great opportunity for installers to maximise their income by adapting their business to cover all aspects of each RHI project – the assessment, the retrofitting of the building fabric, and the installation of the heat pump, biomass, or solar thermal technology.
"The Travis Perkins Group is the only player in the market with leading merchants in each product sector, helping installers access the best products and prices to offer a complete whole-house solution.”
