About Balcas Energy:

Balcas Energy is part of Balcas, a natural leader in the world of timber.
We opened our first sawmill in 1962 and became one of the largest in the UK and Ireland. Our success came from our knowledge of and respect for timber. In our quest to make the most of every precious tree, Balcas Energy was born.

A co-product of our operations is pure sawdust. In 2004, using natural tree resin as a binder, our engineers pioneered the production of high quality wood pellets.

Originally known as brites, our high grade EN plus pellets have since grown to become 50% of our business. In 2016, Balcas purchased the UK’s largest wood pellet distribution company Forever Fuels and in 2019, with growth in mind, rebranded as Balcas Energy. Balcas Energy is proud to employ some of the most experienced biomass experts in the UK and Ireland and thanks to our advanced Combined Heat and Power plant, both of our production sites are self-sufficient.

Balcas Energy’s Invergordon and Enniskillen sites have production capacities of 100,000 tonnes and 55,000 tonnes of wood pellets respectively. Our operations are so efficient that we put surplus electricity back into the grid throughout the year.

Balcas employs over 380 people and an additional 300 are engaged in forest harvesting and haulage on our behalf.

You delivered 6T but the order was for 7T. Apart from that, it was OK.

Dear Customer I am pleased to hear that you have received your delivery before Christmas. Please accept our apologies that we didn't notify you that the order would be 1 tonne short. We will honour the price that you were quoted per tonne for 7 tonnes. Kindest regards Claire

Delightful driver. Would have liked a rough delivery time phoned through in the morning though - ended waiting in ALL day for a 4.20 arrival... Also alarming stop/start flow throughout delivery (due to tanker being empty?) causing unnecessarily damage to pellets + extra dust in my hopper..

Delivery as promised, but the website demanded a deposit before accepting my order and then directed me to a page that was unable to accept a deposit. So I lost weekend before being able to phone my order, which was accepted without a deposit, and then found the first available delivery was 10 days later by which time we no longer had any pellets and were cold. So less than happy!

Good Afternoon Malcolm I am sorry that your experience with our ordering process was less than satisfactory. We have now fixed the IT issue we had with the payment page of our website. With regards to the lead times, no orders are allocated a delivery date over the weekend. Lead times in the winter are usually a couple of weeks so I would reccomend to plan for this in the future. I am pleased to see that you were happy with the delivery :-) Kindest regards Claire

Just been taken over by another company. Blown pellet prices have risen by 32% from June 2016 to September 2018. This form of energy now getting very expensive.

The driver and the delivery was excellent, but there was a short delivery on my order. Not enough pellets loaded on the lorry. Disappointed 😞

Change of delivery day and almost ran out of pellets. High price increase against other suppliers. However, Gary (delivery driver) took care to minimise blown pressure as previous issues with ripped impact mat. Appeared to improve situation as minimal dust also. Thanks

Very quick delivery - next day. Ordered 2 tonnes. After ordering, received 6 emails within 10 mins changing delivery date, changing it back, and changing quantity to 1.5 tonnes. Driver had 2.5 available, but at 4pm, couldn't get permission to deliver from office, who had apparently all gone home, so went away with 1 tonne that he could have sold me.

Pellets arrived on day asked for, at 9am. Sadly driver was inexperienced and left a mess of pellets around fuel store, which he did not clear up.

Your ordering system both on line and by phone is excellent. Your driver (Vic) is knowledgeable and expert. Painless Nick Parkeronskype's P
