Case Study: 50kW wood pellet-fired boiler for Titoki Healing Centre, Bay of Plenty, NZ

A 50kW wood pellet-fired boiler is proving considerably cheaper than electricity for healing the Bay of Plenty's 30 bed Titoki Healing Centre. Fully automated and fed by a 3-tonne hopper topped up by the truckload, the system operates virtually hands-free. Installation cost around $80,000. That compared more than favourably to the other main option, at around $90,000. Running costs are even more competitive at about $4,400 annually, almost a third of the costs estimated for running heat pumps. The system feeds 40 radiators serving bedrooms and communal rooms and has capacity to supplement the Centre's solar-powered hot water system.
