Biomass boilers

This month we are focussing on biomass boilers and the very attractive incentive for commercial businesses called the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

A biomass boiler can burn a wide range of materials including logs, pellets or chips as well as agricultural crops and animal residues such as straw and slurry. It is generally considered carbon neutral as the carbon emitted when the material is burned is the same as that absorbed as the plant was growing.

The biomass boiler is connected to a central heating and hot water system and can provide energy efficient heating and hot water for the whole year. A biomass system will work extremely well for businesses with extensive office space heated by lots of radiators as well as care homes, schools and hospitals.

Payback in just 4 to 6 years
An effective system will not only reduce energy bills but will also qualify for the RHI; a 20 year indexed linked incentive that ensures an average payback period of around 4 to 6 years. The scheme is limited so those who react quickly will secure the maximum benefit.

Finance options
Many businesses have the desire to install renewable technology but sometimes upfront payments can be a barrier therefore Eco Solartech have formed links with independent lenders who are keen to provide repayment options that suit the clients cash flow.
