Welcome to RDI Renewables Ltd. - The Green Deal in the Highlands OF Scotland


HEEPS: Cashback scheme
Claim up to £5,800 through the Scottish Government’s HEEPS: Cashback scheme.
The Scottish Government is offering owner occupiers, private and social tenants and registered private sector landlords a rebate towards installing eligible energy efficiency measures for properties that are in council tax bands A to C. The measures must be recommended in a pre-install Green Deal Advice Report for the property.
Funding is divided into categories with up to £500 available for installing a new boiler, up to £400 for insulation measures and up to £300 for other measures like draught proofing or secondary glazing. For installations of solid wall insulation 75% of the total cost of the work, up to £4,500 is also available. Additional premiums are also available to households which are classified as living in a remote rural area of Scotland. Applicants who install at least one eligible measure and claim funding through the scheme are also entitled to a maximum of £100 towards the cost of their Green Deal Advice Report.
The scheme is available on a first come, first served basis and is subject to available funding.

The Green Deal is a UK wide initiative which will enable householders and businesses make energy efficiency improvements to their property without having to pay any upfront capital costs. There are currently over 45 measures available in the Green Deal, including draught-proofing, and loft, cavity wall and solid wall insulation; as well as a whole host of other measures such as replacement windows, renewable technology and new heating/ hot water systems.

The aim of the Green Deal is to encourage householders to benefit from energy saving measures – without the cost burden, which will be attached to the house and not to the person. The cost of the Green Deal measures will be paid for through the property’s electricity bill – which will be offset by the energy savings from the improvements installed. Any measures installed under Green Deal must meet ‘The Golden Rule’, i.e. the energy cost savings must meet or exceed the cost of the measures over a given payback period.

Anyone interested in a Green Deal package must firstly arrange for a registered and qualified Green Deal Advisor to come and visit their home to carry out an energy and occupancy assessment called the Green Deal Advice Report (GDAR). Following the GDAR - and providing the resident wishes to proceed with installing any or all of the measures recommended that meet the golden rule – the finance is then arranged with a certified Green Deal Provider which is agreed in a Green Deal Plan. Once the finance has been approved the Provider will then arrange for the work to be undertaken by an approved Green Deal Installer/s.

ECO (Energy Company Obligation) will work alongside the Green Deal, by providing extra financial help to householders who are most in need and to those that live in properties which are harder to treat. This will include support for a range of heating and insulation improvements to low income and vulnerable households. Social housing tenants can also benefit from the ECO scheme.

  1. Conciliation and arbitration

Note: The RECC conciliation and arbitration process only covers unresolved disputes arising from issues connected to the sale and installation of small scale renewable technologies.

If at any time a dispute arises between you and us that cannot be resolved you can refer the matter to be handled through RECC's dispute resolution procedure, provided it falls within their remit. We must agree to follow this procedure if that is your wish. RECC is certified through the Chartered Trading Standards Institute as an Alternative Dispute Resolution provider. You can find further information on the RECC website:

If you register a dispute with RECC it will be allocated to a RECC caseworker, who will mediate between both parties in order to resolve the dispute. Mediation aims to reach a non-legal solution to the dispute in a reasonable timescale.

If an agreement is not reached through mediation for any reason, you can refer the matter to RECC's independent arbitration service and we must agree to arbitration if that is your wish. You would have to pay a small fee directly to the arbitration provider which may be refunded to you if the arbitrator finds in your favour.

You can find more information on the RECC website:

An award made under the independent arbitration service will be final and legally binding on you and us. You and we may only challenge the award on certain limited grounds under the Arbitration Act 1996.

Disputes that relate to the MCS Installer Standards can be referred to our MCS Certification Body. We will supply their contact details to you on request.

         We recommend that you read the Renewable Energy Consumer Code, it is available at
