Renewable Energy for Commercial Premises

Not only is using renewable energy the right thing to do but it can reduce costs and provide income for your business or farm.


Biomass Boilers Scotland | Newcastle | Greenpower Technology

Commercial biomass boilers enjoy a financial incentive for 20 years in the UK. Greenpower Technology is your local installer of biomass in Scotland and the North of England.

Biomass in the UK is cheaper to run than fossil fuels, it gives your company green credentials and payback on your investment can be within 4 years.

Solar Power Scotland – Commercial | Greenpower Technology

Greenpower Technology is a leading solar power company installing PV solar panels for businesses in Scotland and the North of England.

Solar power from photovoltaic (PV) panels can provide energy for heating, refrigeration and lighting, all much needed by farms and businesses. PV solar works all year round – even when the sun isn’t shining! This is why it does work in Scotland’s cloudy skies.

PV solar panels provide a good return on your investment, through savings on your electricity bills and the government backed Feed-In Tariff (FIT). FITs are linked to inflation and guaranteed for 20 years.

Solar Power For Farms Scotland | Greenpower Technology

Read about the benefits one Scottish farmer realised when installing solar PV panels throughout his farm in Angus.

“In solar PV, I believe we’ve found a system that is ideally suited to our type of business in that it matches our energy requirements by producing most energy in the hot summer months when we’re using ventilation,” said Mr Ogg, who produces about 1.5 million chickens a year alongside his arable and pig enterprise.

Renewable Energy On Farms – Solar & Biomass | Scotland

Read about the huge savings that a Scottish poultry farmer has realised by installing both solar PV panels and commercial biomass boilers for his farm.

With margins becoming tighter in the chicken business, renewables were an attractive prospect, as Brian explained: “In the past, a chicken farmer would have to put in more sheds. I’ve invested in renewables, rather than building another shed, I thought this would be a better attribute.

The Amazing Benefits of Using Solar Energy in Scotland

There are quite amazing benefits to be had by installing solar energy in your home and business. Find out why you should be using solar energy.

Every household and every company that installs solar panels on a suitable roof will:-

  • Reduce their ever increasing electricity bills
  • Reduce their carbon footprint
  • Receive money for generating electricity (Feed-in Tariff)
  • Get a better return for savings than a bank savings account

RHI - Renewable Heat Incentive

RHI - Renewable Heat Incentive

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is the world’s first long-term financial support programme for renewable heat.

The RHI pays participants of the scheme that generate and use renewable energy to heat their buildings. By increasing the generation of heat from renewable energy sources (instead of fossil fuels), the RHI helps the UK reduce greenhouse gas emissions and meet targets for reducing the effects of climate change.

5 Reasons Businesses Need Solar Panels | Solar PV

Top 5 reasons why every commercial business needs solar panels installed. It makes sense because of the saving in energy costs.

Regardless of the kind of business you run, you could be reaping the benefits of solar panels. Yes, surprisingly few businesses are. What’s so great about solar? Why does it have such broad appeal?

CHP - Combined Heat & Power Biomass Boiler

Combined Heat & Power Electricity Generation

A CHP boiler is ideal for businesses that have a constant, high demand for power and heat. Although, these boilers are quite new in the UK they have been used successfully in Europe for many years. A CHP boiler burns wood chips to generate electricity. It also captures the heat from this process (that would normally be wasted), to provide thermal energy for heating.

Not only are these boilers energy-efficient and will reduce your energy costs but they are backed by the non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. This means that by installing a biomass CHP boiler you will be eligible to receive quarterly payments for 20 years based on the amount of heat generated.

Greenpower Technology has partnered with a number of high quality CHP manufacturers. We can install units that produce from 100KW to 10MW for businesses located in Scotland or the Northern parts of England such as Northumberland and Cumbria.
