Farmers in the West Country


Farmers in the West Country could branch into wood chippings production to power combined heat and power plants. Renewable Heat & Power is supplying the renewable fuel to power two schools in the region and plans to supply a further six sites before the end of the year.

Such biomass fuelled systems operate at around a third the cost of oil.
