Assignment of rights passed through Parliament

The government has passed a bill called the Assignment of Rights (AoR). This new bill will allow investors to be assigned the rights to the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) paid by the government in exchange for paying much of the upfront cost of installing a renewable heating system.

It is hoped that this new bill will make renewable heating more affordable particularly for those who are thought to experience fuel poverty. This will increase the accessibility to renewable heating and move us to a low carbon future.
