AN alternative energy installer will be showing off the benefits of biomass in an event next week.

The Wood Heating Company has recently installed two biomass-fired district heating systems at Netherwitton Hall.

And owner John Trevelyan, who commissioned the work, is throwing open his doors to show others just what the system can provide.

He has twin 100kw Herz woodchip boilers after deciding to take the plunge into biomass due to rising oil prices and a new Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI) scheme from the Government, which promises those who install such boilers 12.2p for every kilowatt hour of heat they produce.

Mr Trevelyan said: “I first looked at biomass heating in 2005, but at that stage it did not stack up financially. Now that oil has gone from around 28p to 65p per litre the maths is very different.

“Also, the introduction of the RHI tipped the balance in favour of biomass, or in my case specifically wood chip.

“I am very pleased with the work done by The Wood Heating Company.

“The projects have both run on time and have stuck to the agreed budget.

“The icing on the cake has been the after-sales service, which in my case has been second to none.”

The company has its own design and project management team, which takes full responsibility for design, installation, commissioning and maintenance.

The information event at Netherwitton takes place on Tuesday.
