Biomass Boiler Finance Model
Free Biomass Boiler - Zero Capex

Similar to a Solar Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), there are now options for receiving a fully funded Biomass Boiler package. The reason a fund is prepared to pay for the installation and maintenance of a Domestic or Commercial Biomass Boiler is because of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). The RHI gives the fund a steady return on the investment and this then allows the host to benefit from the heat produced by the Biomass Boiler through a number of avenues:


1. Free Renewable Heat: This an arrangement where a host is able to take the free renewable heat in return for paying for the highly competitive Biomass Fuel (vs fossil fuels). Some Biomass Fuels are currently the cheapest fuel on the market bringing significant fuel savings to the host. This scheme is ideally suited for entities that don't wish to invest and have high heating costs (normally off mains gas). Contact us to see how much your business or home can save.


2.  Heat Purchase Agreement (HPA): The second approach is where the host doesn't pay for the biomass boiler or the fuel but does pay for the renewable heat they use. The goal is for the rate at which the heat is purchased to be less than the rates currently paid. Normally the rate is linked to the Retail Price Index (RPI).


To understand how your Business or Home can benefit from this scheme, contact us today.
