what is solar photovoltaic pv
What is Solar Photovoltaic (PV) ?
  • Panels that harness the sun’s energy and convert it into useable electricity via photovoltaic cells
  • It does not require direct sunlight
  • Panels create DC power, which is converted into AC by an inverter
  • Systems are generally ‘grid connected’ – there is no storage of electricity
  • Your premises become a ‘mini’ power station


4kW Solar Photovoltaic (PV)

Produces up to 3,400 units of electricity per year

Assuming 50% used;

£275 saving per year on electricity bills

£100 per year payment for exporting units

£580 per year paid for generating green electricity (NIROCs)


£955 total benefit per year

This is higher if more electricity is used, and as electricity prices rise

Typical cost: £5,800


Why Solar Photovoltaic (PV) ?

  • Increasing energy costs and the need to reduce carbon emissions
  • Proven technology
    • Photovoltaic concept proven in 1839
    • Commercially available since 1959
    • Panels installed in 1982 are still producing
  • Power production warranty to ensure panels are still producing 80% of their original rated output after 30 years

Why Solar Photovoltaic (PV) ?

  • No moving parts
  • Minimal servicing
  • Self cleaning at 15° tilt or more
  • Save on electricity costs & Generate an income

26kW Wood Pellet Boiler

Fully automatic

Over 95% efficient

Self cleaning

Integrated hopper holds equivalent of 100 – 125 litres of heating oil

Option to add larger wood pellet silo (3.5 tonne+)

Empty ash once per month in winter

Install cost £5,000 - £6,000

£2,500 grant available


Wood Pellets

Available in 10 & 15kg bags

(£2.40 per 10kg)

Available in bulk blown form

(£2.10 per 10kg)

Heating oil @ 58p per litre is 5.8p/kWh, Pellets are 4.4p/kWh

25% saving on fuel costs


Available from Verdo, Balcas, LandEnergy, Blazers, Laois Sawmills, and Forever Fuels


Biomass Heating for Businesses

Not a new technology

Automatic wood fuel boilers developed c. 30+ years ago

e.g. Austria in some regions more that 50% of all space heating (commercial & domestic) from wood-fired boilers.

UK & Ireland catching up.

renewable heat incentive n i
Renewable Heat Incentive – N.I.
  • Currently only 2% heat in NI is from renewables
  • Target is 10% by 2020
  • Significant government support needed to meet target
  • £25m fund allocated by Stormont
renewable heat incentive n i1
Renewable Heat Incentive – N.I.
  • The Renewable Heat Incentive is for 20 years
  • RHI paid on heat produced (non-domestic only)
  • Heat meter(s) fitted to measure units of eligible heat generated
  • Essential that the biomass boiler will last & operate reliably & efficiently with minimum parts replacement and servicing for at least 20 years
rhi tariffs for biomass
RHI tariffs for Biomass

20 to 99kW

  • 6.1p per kWh paid quarterly for 20 years

100kW to 999kW

  • 1.5p per kWh paid quarterly for 20 years
  • Not normally economical to install boilers above 99kW
  • Pellets are the most straightforward option


No.1 boiler manufacturer in Austria and France

100% Family owned business

90%+ of the boiler components are manufactured on site

Spares for every boiler ever made (since 1984) are held by Hargassner

c.12,000 boilers annually

rhi example
RHI example
  • Nursing home
  • Current oil usage of £22,000 per year, boiler efficiency of 85%
  • Move to 94% efficient pellet boiler saves £5,500 in fuel costs
  • Annual RHI payments of £14,000

Payback of 3-4 years

carbon trust 0 loan
Carbon Trust 0% loan
  • Any business in Northern Ireland can apply for a loan.
  • Business loans are available from £3,000 - £400,000. The size of the loan offered and its repayment period will be based on the projected CO2 savings of a project, which will be assessed by the Carbon Trust.
  • £1,000 of loan for every 1.5 tCO2 saved per annum for a project.
  • Loans are Government-funded and unsecured
  • No arrangement fees
  • You have up to four years to repay your loan
