D&J Franks Renewables recommended that the business install a biomass heating system as it would offer a maximum heat output and was most suited to the building structure- a large factory. In additional there were Renewable Heating Incentives available which offered an added revenue stream to the business and assisted with their plans to grow.

The business benefited from an updated heating system with automated controls as well as renewable fuels. In addition, they could enjoy carbon neutral energy as well as an ongoing additional income for the next 20 years.
