SunGift and two of our biomass customers opened their doors on 18 September so that other businesses could get a clear idea of how the systems work and see how beneficial biomass can be.

Along with 10 other Devon biomass

businesses (who showed off more than 20 installations in total), SunGift was part of the ‘Renewable Heat at Work’ open day on which showed how renewable heat can offer customers savings on fuel bills and show how woodfuel is produced.

Our two showcase installations were our almost-completed installation at Escot House in Ottery St Mary and the 80 kW boiler at Lower Mullacott Farm in North Devon, and visitors got the chance to see how well the technology is performing, how much they will generate in Renewable Heat Incentive Payments, and the exceptional returns on investment.

The open day was organised by renewable energy experts Regen SW and supported by Devon County Council and the Forestry Commission.

Tim Crook, project manager for Regen SW said “Heating is often a hidden technology, but Devon has the most biomass heat installations in the south west. An experienced and competent supply chain is busy delivering them up and down the county. The day allowed businesses and communities worried about their next winter fuel bill to also find out how biomass can generate them an income.”

“Devon has huge potential in generating renewable heat and earning money from government incentives. Biomass boilers are now more commonplace than people realise, and ideal for off gas areas. The technology is reliable and well established, but biomass boilers are often hidden away. Many potential customers may have no idea there is a renewable heating system or source of biomass fuel supply just down the road.”
