Okehampton College is benefitting from energy savings of as much as £25,000 a year following the installation of a 199kW Green Heat Module with a Hargassner boiler. The college, which is situated in the centre of Okehampton in the Northwest corner of Dartmoor National Park, has a long-standing campaign to promote environmentally friendly and efficient sources of energy. As part of this commitment, they wanted to install a high-energy efficiency, clean burn wood pellet boiler adjacent to its main school boiler house to supplement the current gas-burning boilers.
After consulting with EDF Energy, the college decided that a 199kW Hargassner Green Heat Module would be the ideal choice as the boiler is 95% efficient and carbon-neutral, saving the college £25,000 a year on heating bills. The Green Heat Module is a fully pre-packaged off-site solution for a biomass heating boiler and fuel.
