Welsh residents could switch to biomass boilers
In Wales, UK, the threat of rising energy costs could see residents switch from using fossil fuels to renewable energy in their homes.
A price surge of 15% in the upcoming months is expected to encourage home owners to install biomass boilers in their homes.
According to Andrew Boroughs, owner of Welshpool-based Organic Energy, the sales of wood pellet burners has increased by 20% in Q1 2011 alone.
'Over the course of the past year, every one of the six biggest energy providers in the UK rained its process and the new increases are likely to be added to customers' bills by the start of the summer,' Boroughs says. 'Anyone who ran out of heating oil last winter knows just how dependent rural properties in particular are on this fossil fuel, the cost of which is also increasing.'
