Assignment of Rights

What is the Assignment of Rights (AoR) for Domestic RHI?

Renewable heating can be expensive to install, but, in the right properties the potential savings on fuel costs or energy bills - combined with Domestic RHI payments - can make renewable heating systems an attractive investment.

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is introducing an option to help householders and/or landlords access finance to overcome the barrier of the upfront cost of a renewable heating system.

This is called "assignment of rights" (AoR). This option allows AOS Heating the "investor" to help fund the purchase, installation and maintenance, of a household or landlord's renewable heating system.
Households and landlords are then able to assign their RHI payments to AOS Heating the "investor", who is referred to in the RHI Regulations as the "nominated" investor.

The Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has announced this update to RHI, as a key method of increasing uptake.

How does it work?

Applicants must be the owners of the renewable heating system and must submit an application to the Domestic RHI. However, applicants can choose to assign their RHI payments to a registered investor during the application process. Both participants and investors will have to comply with their "ongoing obligations" under the scheme if accredited under the scheme.

How do I apply?

First and foremost, you must be the owner of your renewable heating system. The investor will not and cannot own any part of the system itself.
The process of applying for the Assignment of Rights is not overly taxing, although contracts must be watertight. You can apply for the Domestic RHI scheme online, as long as you meet the requirements. As part of this process, you will be prompted to assign payments to your nominated investor. You will need a unique reference number to assign rights over to the correct investor. They need to be approved and listed in the system before you select them.
