Renewable Heating for Farms
Ecovision have the experience and knowledge to meet the challenge of retrofit installations, within active and very busy rural environments
Installing a modern energy system with Ecovision can reduce your farm’s annual energy spend by up to 50% and entitle you to valuable government incentives, providing quarterly payments for 20 years. Renewable technologies often pay for themselves within 6 years or less, leaving many years of remaining payments to enjoy or reinvest in your business.
Our Agricultural Experience
One of Ecovision’s most recent agriculture installations took place at Yew Tree Farm. Their move to Renewable Heating provides a cost effective and comfortable environment as well as creating an additional 20 year income through the Renewable Heat Incentive. Keen to find a more cost effective and sustainable heating alternative, the Haimes family contacted Ecovision who designed and installed a 200kW ETA Biomass Woodchip Boiler, providing all heating and hot water to all commercial units and the family farm house. With the opportunity to supply their own wood chip, combined with substantial savings compared to oil and funding via the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), the biomass system now saves Yew Tree Farm up to 30% on heating bills annually.
The Financial Opportunity
Significant incentive payments are available to farm owners via the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). This means if you install an accredited renewable heating system, such as a Heat Pump or Biomass Boiler, you could be paid thousands of pounds, as well as reducing your running costs by up to 50%, improving comfort levels and cutting your carbon footprint. Once the renewable heating system is installed RHI payments are locked in and guaranteed for the next twenty years.
The RHI applies to Biomass Boilers and Heat Pumps, both of which can provide a great return on investment, however it also applies to Combined Heat and Power which could provide both your heating and electricity needs, creating what is possibly the most attractive renewable investment available today.
