What are Biomass Boilers?
Installing a biomass boiler can dramatically increase the efficiency of heating your property whilst using a carbon neutral source. The Biomass Boiler works by burning wood pellets, chips or logs to heat a hot water boiler. Burning wood is deemed carbon neutral as the emissions from the boiler are equal to the carbon dioxide absorbed by the wood when it was alive, giving no net gains in the levels of carbon dioxide.
Through using locally produced biomass you can reduce your carbon footprint even further, as well as helping boost the local economy through your purchases. The price of wood is historically more stable than that of fossil fuels, therefore you benefit by not having a reliance on costly and volatile fuel market.
Benefits of using a Biomass Boiler include:
- Reduction in the cost of your energy bills
- Low carbon emissions – 0.008kg of CO2 per kWh, compared to 0.198kg from gas
- Better efficiency than a conventional gas boiler
- Eligible for Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments
- Can benefit local and rural economies through the purchase of fuel
There is now a financial benefit for using renewable energy to heat your home. Through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), the government pays a quarterly subsidy into your bank account based on how much energy you produce and by which method.
RHI for Biomass systems is currently paid at 6.43p per kWh, for new installations made from 1st October 2015. This means a heat load of 15,000kWh would be eligible for an annual payment of £964.50, paid in quarterly sums of £241.13.
At BSW we can give you advice on eligibility for the RHI scheme as well as give you estimations on the payments you could expect with your chosen renewable heat source.
