Homeowners...we have been awarded full accreditation under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) for our full range of wood gasification log boilersand our wood pellet boiler. This covers the Angus Super, the Angus Orligno 200 and Angus Orligno 500 range. (Eco Angus Ltd microgeneration certification scheme product approval.pdf)This will mean that homeowners will be eligible for a grant when they install our approved boilers as long as they are installed or commissioned off by an MCS approved installer.
The UK Government has announced further details of the grants available under the Renewable Heat Incentive. There is still some clarification required over Spring 2011 of how this will work for domestic installations for grants from 2012. However our accredited boilers will be supported over 20 years from the commencement of the grant in 2012 and this will be applied retrospectively to installations from 15th July 2009.

Businesses...we have now been given grant status by the Carbon Trust under The Enhanced Capital Allowance scheme for energy-saving technologies for all seven of our wood log gasification boilers. For further information please see the following link: ECA for energy saving technologies.pdf
Businesses...it is possible for small to medium sized enterprises to borrow from £5,000 to £100,000 on an unsecured basis and payable over a period of up to 4 years.There are no arrangement fees and applying is straightforward go to www.carbontrust.co.uk/loans to find out more.
Farmers....It is possible to obtain grants through Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) and the Scotland Rural Development Programme (SRDP). This is under the resource efficiency for farmers (R4F) and on approval can be a 40% grant on a biomass installation up to a value of £10,000 (or up to £20,000 for dairy farmers).
As their are 9 RDA's in England you will need to establish which is the appropriate local RDA see www.englandsrdas.com
On expressing an interest for a grant under the R4F an approved
consultant (in a fully funded basis) will arrange a visit to your farm
and draw up an action plan based on your energy usage.
Biomass boilers are an approved technology under this action plan.
If this is then approved you would make apply to the RDA for a grant.
3 quotes are required and the grant approval can take up to 12 weeks.
As stated the grants available are 40% of the installed value of the
biomass boiler up to a threshold of £10000 or £20000 if you are a dairy
farmer (there are some small variations between each of the RDA's).
Disregarding grants, we believe our product offers high quality and good value for money. Even without a current grant structure in place, sale of boilers has been steadily increasing month on month.
The Greener Homes Scheme is now available and provides assistance to homeowners who intend to purchase a new renewable energy heating system for existing homes which was first occupied prior to 30th June 2008. The scheme is administered by Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland and aims to increase the use of sustainable energy technologies within Irish homes.
