Genius Energy offers Grant Biomass as part of the RHI

Genius Energy installs Grant Biomass BoilersBiomass is set to take off in an exponential way over the next few years due to the generous benefits of being able to recoup the costs of such a boiler very quickly thanks to the RHI and the anticipation of future oil rises. The current savings are approximately 26-27%, but could be significantly higher if the oil price changes in the not-so-distant future, which is usually the case with a scarce, diminishing and sought-after natural resource. Furthermore, did you know that in just four years in a domestic setting, the cost of the boiler could potentially be offset? The Government’s RHI makes Biomass a very attractive option indeed.

The MCS-approved Grant Spira range from the extremely reputable Irish manufacturer Grant Engineering is said to be the main focus initially for Genius Energy, which not only provides optimum efficiency, but incredible reliability in comparison to other wood pellet appliances.  This is mainly due to the inclusion of an automatic self-cleaning system for the heat exchangers that ensures they stay free of debris.

The Grant Spira’s efficiency is a result of a unique secondary condensing heat exchanger that has been designed to capture some of the lost latent heat in the flue gasses. This therefore keeps efficiency very high and results in greater financial returns and savings.

Genius Energy, who are now the largest solar PV supplier of privately owned systems in the UK, will be offering the products for both domestic and commercial business sectors, which adds nicely to their booming renewable Energy business.

Darren Taylor, Genius Energy’s Business Consultant stated; ‘I am extremely excited to be working with Grant on this new initiative. Not only does biomass provide excellent cost-savings, but it is great for green business credentials as well as domestic. Grant boilers are excellent quality and I very much look forward to working with them’.

Grant oil boilers comply with low NOx legislation

On 26th September this year, the next phase of the EU’s Energy-related Products Directive will come into effect.
