    This is a case study from Phaseline Renewables outlining the environmental benefits of a biomass boiler Lincolnshire, including financial benefits from the domestic renewable heat incentive.

    Biomass Pellet Boiler Installation

    Mr. & Mrs. Somerscales also had imminent plans to build an annex extension to their home, so they wanted a new boiler system that could cope with this additional heating demand. They started looking at biomass pellet boilers, and considering having one installed in their home. Their existing log fired boiler was old and proving hard to maintain and run, and a biomass boiler seemed like a good solution to their problem.

    As expert biomass installers Lincolnshire, Phaseline Renewables installed an OkoFen 32kW pellet boiler in their home. The biomass boiler is currently a manual fill with which Mr. & Mrs. Somerscales fill using bags of pellets.  However, we plan to fit a bulk hopper at a later date in order to make the maintenance of the boiler easier and relieve the couple of having to fill the biomass boiler manually.

    The boiler is controlled using OkoFen’s PAW pump stations, which are designed in this instance to control three central heating circuits and two hot water circuits.  The pump stations ensure that the boiler operates incredibly efficiently and the weather compensation option on the boiler allows the system to modulate itself with the external weather conditions.

    With this system, Mr. & Mrs. Somerscales now have a boiler that can be controlled independently from either the main house or the new annex and is delivering them more heat for less money than their old boiler.

    Wood Pellets and Biomass Boilers Lincolnshire

    Wood pellets used in biomass boilers are made of 100% natural wood. They are manufactured by compressing sawdust and shavings under high pressure and pressed into small cylindrical rolls held together by lignin, which is naturally contained in the wood. Therefore, wood pellets are clean and convenient. They are also environmentally friendly, in that more wood is renewed than it is consumed.

    The Renewable Heat Incentive

    Aside from the environmental and ecological benefits of a biomass boiler Lincolnshire, Mr. & Mrs. Somerscales will also be able to benefit from the domestic renewable heat incentive. Launched in April 2014, this scheme offers regular ‘tariff’ payments to those using certain technologies, such as biomass boilers, to heat their homes.

        There are a number of technologies that are eligible for the renewable heat incentive, and the scheme can be an excellent investment for future income and for saving money on energy bills in the future. As professional biomass installers Lincolnshire, Phaseline Renewables have advised lots of people about the requirements that need to be fulfilled in order to be eligible for the domestic renewable heat incentive.

        Eligible Technologies for the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive

        The technologies that are eligible for the renewable heat incentive include air source heat pumps, ground and water source heat pumps, solar thermal and biomass boilers.

        Eligible People for the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive

        The following people are eligible to apply for the RHI:

        • Owner occupiers (including second homes)
        • Private landlords
        • Social landlords
        • Self-builders
        • Legacy (those who installed eligible renewable heat measures between 15 July 2009 and 8 April 2014)

        Government Funded Financial Support Programme

        The Renewable Heat Incentive is a government led scheme designed to promote the uptake of renewable heat technologies, such as biomass boilers, air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps. It is the world’s first long-term financial support programme for renewable heat that pays participants of the scheme to heat their buildings.

        Tariff Rates for the Renewable Heat Incentive

        The domestic renewable heat incentive tariffs are as follows:

        • Air source heat pumps 7.3p/kWh
        • Biomass boilers and biomass pellet stoves with back burner 12.2p/kWh
        • Ground source heat pumps 18.8p/kWh
        • Solar thermal technologies 19.2p/kWh

        Calculate Earnings and Savings With The Renewable Heat Incentive Calculator

        As experienced biomass installers Lincolnshire, we know it is well worth taking a look at a renewable heat incentive calculator to give you an idea of how much money your biomass boiler installation could generate for you and how much you could save on your energy bills.

        Get Paid Quarterly for Seven Years

        The renewable heat incentive payments are quarterly, in arrears, from Ofgem. They rise every year in line with the retail price index and although they are paid over the course of seven years, the rates have been calculated over the expected 20 year life of the systems.

        Make Sure you Have a Domestic Energy Performance Certificate

        To be eligible to join the domestic renewable heat incentive, you must get a domestic Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) to prove that your property has been assessed as a domestic dwelling, and that your renewable heating system will only be used to heat a single property. Without an EPC, you won’t be able to apply and can’t join the scheme.

            Phaseline Renewables are well aware of the many benefits that a biomass boiler can bring to a business, and Bernard Matthews are the latest business to make a financial investment with the installation of biomass boilers on their turkey farms. They are also taking care of the environment with their reduction in CO2 emissions.

            Energy from Renewable Sources Such as Biomass Boilers

            As experienced biomass installers Lincolnshire, Phaseline Renewables think that Bernard Matthews has made a great decision as a business to aim to generate as much of their energy as possible from renewable sources. It will be a fantastic achievement for them to be able to reach their goal of generating 100% of their energy sustainably by 2016.

            Largest Turkey Producers in Britain Choose Biomass Boiler Lincolnshire

            Bernard Matthew Turkey Farms are the largest turkey producers in Britain, with 56 farms throughout Norfolk, Suffolk and Lincolnshire, farming over 7 million turkeys each year.

            Based near Norwich in Norfolk, Bernard Matthews Limited employs just over 2000 people across East Anglia and is a totally integrated food business, allowing for full traceability of all its products and farms.

            179 Biomass Boilers Across Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Suffolk

            The news broke in March of this year that 179 biomass boilers are due to be installed across 21 of Bernard Matthews’ turkey farms. The company aim to reduce emissions and the installations will also help them to achieve fuel savings against their current costs.

            Until now, Bernard Matthews used liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as a fuel. But by installing biomass heating systems they will be able to make significant savings, both in fuel costs and CO2 emissions. The systems will initially be powered by wood chip, but from 2015, new EU regulations mean that poultry litter can also be used as fuel.

            Benefits of Biomass Boilers Lincolnshire

            There are several other benefits to Bernard Matthews in using a dry heat biomass system to generate fuel for their farms. A system such as this improves the circulation of heat, which in turn reduces the in-house ammonia levels, reduces ventilation requirements and increasing litter quality. The project will also create around 51 jobs, including nine full time permanent positions.
