Biomass Boiler Finance and Leasing - How It Works

What is Biomass Boiler Finance?

Biomass boilers are advanced systems that convert organic materials, like wood pellets or chips, into heat, providing a sustainable and eco-friendly solution for heating spaces. These systems are pivotal in the shift towards renewable energy, offering a greener alternative to traditional fossil-fuel-based heating.

However, the initial cost for a biomass boiler can be significant, making finance and leasing options an attractive choice for agricultural businesses, farms and individuals looking to invest in renewable energy without the immediate financial burden. Biomass boiler finance allows the spreading of this investment over time, making it more manageable and financially viable.

As a form of asset finance, the biomass boiler itself often serves as collateral for the loan or lease, securing the agreement and potentially offering more favourable terms. With the UK’s focus on reducing carbon emissions, investing in a biomass boiler not only contributes to a cleaner environment but can also lead to long-term savings on energy bills.

What Types of Finance are Available for Biomass Boilers?

In the UK, there are several finance options available for those looking to invest in biomass boiler systems:

Notably, the RHI scheme for domestic properties may provide subsidies for compliant biomass boilers, encouraging the adoption of renewable heating systems.

Each finance option offers unique advantages and can be tailored to individual circumstances, ensuring that the transition to a biomass boiler is as smooth and financially manageable as possible.

How Does it Work?

Individuals or businesses must first identify a reputable lender specialising in renewable energy solutions to secure biomass boiler finance. Financing a renewable energy system, such as a biomass boiler, is much the same as any type of asset finance. At Clifton Private Finance, we offer a smooth, hassle-free process - it typically unfolds as follows:

Biomass Boilers in UK Agriculture

In the UK, biomass boilers are an integral part of the agricultural sector, offering a renewable and cost-effective heating solution. Utilising organic materials such as wood pellets, chips, or straw, these boilers produce heat for various applications, from warming buildings to drying grain.

Biomass Boilers: Cost and Financing in UK Agriculture

Biomass boilers are a cost-effective and sustainable heating solution for the UK’s agricultural sector. The initial investment can vary depending on the type and size of the boiler system. Here are some indicative price ranges and financing considerations:

In the UK agricultural sector, installing a biomass boiler system on a farm involves several key components and additional considerations. The system requires fuel storage to ensure a steady supply of biomass fuel, a combustion system for efficient burning, a heat exchange mechanism to transfer heat to water, an exhaust system to remove combustion gases, a distribution network of pumps and pipes for circulating heated water, and a control unit for optimal performance management.

Additional considerations include ensuring a reliable and sustainable local biomass fuel supply, properly sizing the boiler to meet the farm’s heat demand, and adhering to flue-gas emissions standards. It’s also crucial to consider the space required for fuel storage and the potential need for planning permission.

How much can I borrow for a biomass boiler system?

The amount you can borrow for a biomass boiler system typically depends on factors such as your credit history, income, cash flow, and the cost of the system. It’s common to finance up to 100% of the equipment cost, though a deposit or guarantor might be required.

What are the terms for biomass boiler finance?

Finance terms for biomass boilers can vary, usually from 12 to 60 months. However, terms can be adjusted based on the lender’s policies and the borrower’s needs. Some lenders may offer extended terms for larger or more complex installations.

Can I pay off biomass boiler finance early?

Early repayment of biomass boiler finance is possible, but it may incur a penalty or settlement fee. Reviewing the finance agreement’s terms and consulting with your lender or broker for any early termination provisions is crucial.

What should I consider when financing a biomass boiler for agricultural use? 

When financing a biomass boiler for agricultural use, consider the boiler’s size and compatibility with your farm’s operations, potential fuel savings, environmental benefits, and eligibility for government incentives. A broker can help navigate these factors to find the best financial solution.

Is maintenance included in biomass boiler finance? 

Maintenance costs are typically not included in the finance package. It’s important to account for ongoing maintenance when calculating the total cost of ownership for your biomass boiler system.
