Environmental and Financial Savings
Our biomass unit produces carbon dioxide emission savings of up to 7.5 tonnes a year when replacing another system i.e. solid fuel (coal) or an electric storage system. The RHI scheme is available for households both off and on the gas grid. Those without mains gas have the most potential to save on fuel bills and lower carbon emissions.
Wood is one of the most natural and sustainable fuel sources available to us, it has a carbon neutral cycle as it releases about the same amount of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere through burning, as it absorbs during growth process.
Controlled in a very similar way to an oil or gas boiler, our biomass boilers have clean burn credentials and super efficiencies in excess of 90%, meaning the range is a more viable option for properties particularly in rural areas that currently have an oil or gas heating system installed.
FUNDED BIOMASS SCHEME
The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) is a government financial incentive that promotes the use of renewable heat. Switching to heating systems that use naturally replenished energy can help the UK reduce its carbon emissions. Domestic installations use the deemed heat and hot water output generated by the energy performance certificate (EPC) that is required in order for a household to join the scheme. Households that join the scheme and stick to its rules, receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat their system produces. The tariff levels for domestic biomass boilers have been set at 3.85p/kWh (As at 1stJanuary 2017) for every kWh of useful heat generated. The domestic RHI scheme opened on 9 April 2014.
