Welcome

Hello, welcome to the Esgair Timber Company Ltd website which I hope you will find useful and interesting.

All the timber is harvested in our own forest and processed in our new sawmill building, before being dispatched to customers.

All our endeavours are directed towards providing quality sustainable timber products for sale in our local area, using tried and tested forestry practice, while using affordable new ideas and technologies where appropriate.

Our operations are entirely off grid and next year we will be installing a biomass fuelled Combined Heat and Power plant to produce our own electricity and sell the excess back to the national grid as renewable energy.

We can also supply all your fuel wood and superior grade wood chip requirements to quality assured standards.

Do not hesitate to contact Peter Bottoms, we will help if we possibly can, details on the ‘contact us’ page.

Why should you switch to a biomass boiler?

If you live within 40 miles of Machynlleth we can provide woodchip to your door at 4pence per kilowatt hour (dependent on delivery distance and size), which is less than any gas, oil, LPG or electric alternative.

There is a HUGE difference between the cost of an National Grid electric heat supply and a local source of renewable biomass (woodchip) and its not just financially beneficial for you. Esgair Timber Company employs local staff, and as it only supplies products within a 40 mile radius, you really are supporting a localised economy.

The figures speak for themselves:

Fuel Type
Heat price (p/KwH) RHI payment (based on <200 KW Boilers) Net savings/return (KwH)
Wood Chip Our Price: 4p 8.3p per KwH (Tier 1) You will gain 4.3p per KwH
Gas 4.8p None You will save 9.1p per KwH
Oil 6p None You will save 10.3p per KwH
LPG 8p None You will save 12.3p per KwH
Electric 14p None You will save 18.3p per KwH
