Renewable Heating for Schools

Your Renewable Partner For Schools and further Education Facilities 

Fuel Your Education Not Your Boiler

 

The majority of schools or colleges are high energy users with multiple unique buildings, often built in different decades, with infrastructure that has evolved. As a consequence, the single, out of the box solution, that many renewable companies may offer isn’t likely to be the answer to your school becoming more energy efficient.

Ecovision are different in their approach and will work with you, to ensure you find the right renewable technology for your school and will recommend solutions to lower fuel costs, reduce your carbon footprint and receive quarterly financial rewards from the Governments Renewable Heat Incentive scheme. This is all encompassed within the free initial consultation process Ecovision provide.

Why Should Schools Go Renewable?

Government Incentives

The Government offers subsidies in the form of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for all heat produced and used on site, and Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs) for all electricity produced on site. This turns your heat and power requirements from a financial drain into a cash generator, through regular payments that are based upon the amount of fuel you use. Commercial Heat Pump or Biomass installations qualify for the Non-Domestic RHI and commercial Biomass CHP Units qualify for both the RHI and ROCs incentives. These are paid quarterly for a period of 20 years. These subsidies will see your initial cost paid off in an average of 5-7 years and will provide further payments that run for until the end of the 20 year period, generating a significant return on your investment.

District Heating

With a modern energy system from Ecovision you can supply heat from a single plant room directly to multiple buildings, eliminating the need to produce heat at each individual location. District heating solutions have significant cost savings versus the installation cost of multiple systems. A well-designed district heating system will run more efficiently than multiple boilers providing savings that can benefit your bottom line.

Environment

Renewable Energy solutions provide substantial benefits for our climate. Through the burning of fossil fuels, we are actively overloading our atmosphere with emissions such as carbon dioxide, that contribute to global warming. These greenhouse gases result in trapped heat, increasing the temperature of our planet. This is harmful for our health, well-being and environment today, but also risks irreversible change in our planets climate in the future. Renewable heating systems use energy sources that are constantly replenished, such as heat from the ground, which have the potential to provide heat and hot water to your school indefinitely.

Lower Energy Bills

Although installing a modern energy system often results in a higher upfront cost than fossil fuel alternatives, the post install benefits can provide up to a 50% drop in annual energy bills. Renewable heating also ensures your energy bills are not altered by factors out of the UK’s control, as is the case with fossil fuels supplied by foreign states, allowing you to have a full understanding of the cost to heat your property, not only now but also for the future.
