Solar 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
Typical cost: £5,800
£580 per year paid for
generating green electricity
-----------------£955 total benefit per year
This is higher if more electricity
is used, and as electricity prices
Increasing energy costs and the need to reduce carbon
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
No moving parts
Minimal servicing
Self cleaning at 15° tilt or more
Save on electricity costs & Generate an income

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.
Currently only 2% heat in NI is from
Target is 10% by 2020
Significant government support needed to
meet target
£25m fund allocated by Stormont
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
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

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
