System type: Biomass Boiler (Commercial)
System size: 70kW
Installation date: December 2014
We were fortunate enough to install a full new heating system & biomass boiler from scratch for a large commercial company in Scunthorpe. Their building was originally powered by gas but the heating needed a full upgrade as it was very inefficient for the buildings’ energy demands. To re-do the plumbing and heating on the whole site would be a very costly project, so we suggested a biomass boiler as an alternative.
We advised the client of the benefits of running a biomass boiler against the benefits of a standard commercial heating system. The RHI made the Biomass heating system a very lucrative project despite it costing around £12k more than the gas option.
After 18 months of the Biomass being installed, it’s fair to say that the installation has been a success. The system is on track to earn the company around £9k in its first year. With the RHI running for 20 years, as of next year the system will have paid itself off and be a profitable investment.
