Biomass Supply

We have added a biomass suppliers list for woodfuel suppliers based in Dumfries & Galloway for your reference.

One element of claiming domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments, is that the woodfuel you use must be purchased from a supplier registered on the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) Biomass Suppliers List (BSL).  However, suppliers do not have to be accredited for the quality of the woodfuel supplied to be able to register on the BSL.  It is therefore important for you, the end user to know what you are purchasing and putting into your boiler.

A woodfuel user must consider many things when it comes to the purchase of fuel.  Price is obviously a factor, but more importantly you must consider quality, size, type of wood and also moisture content.  Finding a supplier who can deliver the perfect product is not always easy, there may be an element of trial and error – this can be costly if you get things really wrong. 

By using an accredited supplier you generally know that you will get the correct fuel for your equipment.  The quality, size and moisture content of the fuel is consistent – poor quality, incorrect size and moisture can result in premature failure of your biomass system.

To ensure satisfactory performance of domestic biomass appliances, it is important to use fuels that are of a suitable type and size. Good quality fuels are essential for safe and efficient combustion as poor quality fuels waste energy and ultimately cost more.  Woodfuel suppliers that have become accredited have undertaken rigorous testing, thus proving the fuel they supply meets industry quality standards.

So it is true to say, “the cheapest is not necessarily the best”, research all available woodfuel and choose the right supplier.

Please look at our supplier list, we can neither recommend nor guarantee the quality of the woodfuel on our suppliers list, but the information will give you a sound basis on which to make your decision.
