Technical ServicesAs well as high-quality wood pellets at an extremely competitive price, Billington Bioenergy can also offer you a number of technical services that make it easier to keep your home or your business premises warm.


Spotlight on: Fuel Level Measurement
so you never run out of wood pellets

Nobody wants to run out of heating and hot water, especially in the depths of winter. Let Billington Bioenergy keep track of how much fuel you have in your store and organise timely deliveries for you on your behalf. With our systems, you can always be sure that your biomass boiler has enough fuel to run properly, which not only keeps your property warm but also helps you to maximise your RHI payments if you are on the non-domestic tariff.

We offer two different fuel level measurement systems suitable for all budgets - VEGA and ISTA. These give us remote access to your fuel store level and enable us to set up a delivery well before your stock level falls too low.

using data to anticipate your wood pellet needs

Available to customers on the non-domestic RHI Tarrif

ISTA uses a modem, connected to your RHI heat meter which gathers and sends heat usage data to our web portal, which in turn calculates the amount of fuel used and remaining in your store. This is the most economic system we provide and has proved to be the most popular level measurement system for customers on the non-domestic RHI tariff. To take advantage of this system all you need is an Mbus enabled RHI meter (most meters meet this requirement).

  • Billington Bioenergy manage your wood pellet requirements for you.

VEGA Logo
using microwave radar to check your wood pellet level

Available to customers on both domestic & non-domestic RHI tariffs.

VEGA uses a microwave radar system to measure the current level of wood pellets in your store. Unlike many other ‘in-store’ fuel level measurement systems, VEGA is not adversely affected by dust and has been proven to provide consistently reliable readings. Level measurement data is sent via email or text to a nominated user group, so we and you will always know the level of fuel in your store.

  • Billington Bioenergy manage your wood pellet requirements for you.
  • Store level monitoring and pre-set buffer level alarm.
  • Proactive planning of orders.
  • Communication of planned deliveries and store replenishment.
  • Simple, robust design with water resistance module.
