    Biomass (Wood Chip) Boilers

    Biomass (Wood Chip) Boilers 1st Mar 12 at 1:11 PM
    Does anyone on here have any first hand experience of biomass boilers, particularly those fired by wood chip?

    I am seriously considering a DIY install of a wood chip boiler in the coming months and would love to hear any tips or experiences. I was holding out for the RHI but as we are on mains gas it is looking highly unlikely I'll qualify.

    I am particularly interested in wood chip as I grow trees and forestry for a living and could produce 30 cubic metres of seasoned wood chip a year without breaking a sweat.

    Space for the boiler and wood store is not a problem, one of the current boilers is housed in a 12x5m outbuilding which has good access.
