Tre-Ysgawen Hall Country House Hotel & Spa in Anglesey, Wales, has built its own biomass plant in a bid to cut its energy bills.

The building of the £500,000 plant will completely cancel out the £90,000 oil bill the hotel pays each year for heating and drastically cut its £200,000 energy bills. 

It is estimated that the cost of the project will be made back in six years if the hotel also receives the Government’s renewable heat incentive payment. 

Tre-ysgawen Hall chief executive Neil Rowlands said installing the plant would help safeguard the 80 jobs at the hotel as well as make it more efficient. 

He said: “We have been spending £200,000 a year on LPG, oil and electricity and in business terms, that means I have to have a turnover of £800,000 a year just to pay the fuel bills. It was crucial to the future of the hotel that we did something now to address this.” 

The boiler was sourced and installed by Rural Energy.
