    EPC and RHI 13th Mar 18 at 3:13 PM
    Am I right in that you only need to have a recent EPC to get RHI now? For some reason I thought you needed to be a D before you could claim (FIT or RHI) which for my old house is impossible WITHOUT fitting renewables, and I'd started to think we couldn't do it. But now going through the RHI calculator and putting in the EPC we have now (and it will be better soon) we still get RHI? Now this seems a very sensible change (maybe I read a very old bit of legislation). Can anyone confirm?

    EPC = Energy Performance Certificate rating for homes.
    RHI = Renewable Heating Incentive for low carbon heating of homes - similar to the FiT (Feed in Tariff) scheme for microgeneration technologies.
