Hotel installs bioenergy plant
In order to cut energy bills and make sure employees do not lose their jobs, a luxury spa hotel in Anglesey, UK has built a £500,000 (€607,000) biomass plant.
The system at the plant, situated at the Tre-Ysgawen Hall Country House Hotel and Spa, at Capel Coch, near Llangefni, is able to produce 600kW of power, using woodchips as fuel, meaning that the £90,000 oil bill that is currently paid each year at the hotel will be cut.
In comparison, the bioenergy plant will only cost about £40,000 to run each year.
Under the UK government’s renewable heat incentive, the hotel was granted a subsidy which will help pay for the running costs of the plant for the next 20 years.
