Farmers and rural businesses can be better off by switching to renewable energy
With the cost of fossil fuels increasing year on year and the added burden of carbon emission taxes, there has never been a better time to move to renewable energy. For those living off the mains gas grid and relying on oil or LPG to run a rural commercial enterprise, changing to an environmentally friendly energy system isn’t just beneficial, it can also be very profitable.
At EnergyMyWay we see more and more rural businesses making the switch every year. Why? Because what is on offer is hard to beat. The Government’s Non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive offers generous subsidies that can provide much-needed extra income. Then there is also the fact that huge savings can be made on the cost of fuel as well as not having to pay taxes on carbon emissions.
What are some of the options?
Systems like Biomass Boilers are ideally suited to rural businesses as wood pellets are up to 30% cheaper than oil.The Renewable Heat Incentive is generating returns for rural businesses installing Biomass Boilers, of up to 25% every year for 20 years. Biomass Boilers take up more space than a traditional boiler so you’ll need somewhere to store the wood chip pellets.
Ground mounted Solar PV can also generate a healthy return from the Feed-in Tariff, and can be especially beneficial to those with a large area of land. You’ll be paid for all the energy that isn’t used by your business when it is fed back into the grid.
How much can I save?
It will all depend on the type of system you install. However, results from installations we’ve carried out are impressive. A typical commercial size Biomass Boiler can save up to 30% on your heating bills and earn you up to 25% return on your investment every year for 20 years.
What should I do next?
