Climate Change


Thinking of changing your boiler ? Then before you choose oil, make sure you have seen the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

The Domestic RHI is a UK Government financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat. Switching to heating systems that use naturally replenished energy can help the UK reduce its carbon emissions and could help you reduce your heating bills. If you join and comply with the scheme rules, you will receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat the system produces.

Thinking of Solar Panels ?

A 4kWp array of solar panels on a domestic south facing roof can produce 4000 units of electricity a year and save many tonnes of CO2 over their lifetime. Hinton Parva has almost 100kW installed across the village that generates around 100,000 units of electricity saving 50 tonnes of CO2 a year. Bishopstone currently has about a quarter of this capacity, and is also helping to combat climate change. Anyone considering solar panels in Bishopstone, should note that an Article 4 planning restriction was implemented in 2015 that requires residents to apply for planning permission (free of charge).
